Dylan Emmons has always lived his life in two worlds. Diagnosed with Asperger's at the age of six, his school days were spent struggling to overcome the sensory and social hurdles that made fitting in with his classmates in the 'real world' so hard. An aspiring social chameleon, he attempted to blend in, despite his hidden other world of Asperger's. This book tells the story of his attempt, with the hindsight gained in adult life that it is better to spend energy learning to be happy, than learning to be 'normal'. By describing the two conflicting worlds of his childhood, Dylan Emmons reveals the reasons behind the actions, mood swings and awkwardness of children on the autism spectrum that can often appear mysterious and unprovoked to neurotypical family members, friends, teachers and professionals.

From a difficult, rural existence in Ghana to the promise of life in the United States, Living in Two Worlds shows how the necessities of life can be found in perseverance and faith. With inspiring and encouraging stories that chronicle his and his family’s journey, author Sadik Aboagye shares for posterity and for insight both the contrasts and comparisons of life on two sides of the globe. “The author offers an impressionistic view of rural life in Ghana with its concomitant challenges. With some of us, it is a reminder of the good old days in the village where basic amenities like good schooling, electricity, pipe-borne water, and clinics were virtually nonexistent—and yet where life was normal and joyful. It equally serves as a useful resource for all those who never tasted rural life but grew up in the cities of Africa and other countries. Though the author went through myriads of problems and challenges with school, finances, fatal accidents, diseases, frustrations, and perilous times on the seas aboard a ship from Nigeria to Ghana—as well as many other heartbreaking events in his life—God protected him and his family in their journey through life. It is also an encouraging story of how maximization and utilization of available natural and human resources can propel the individual and society to greater heights. I am deeply honored to write these few lines about this timely, needed, and informative book.” —Dr. Gabriel Amoateng-Boahen, Professional Staff Chaplain, University of Chicago Medical Center
