My World is not Your World

Second edition, 2017

Dr Alison Hale


My autobiography 'My World is not Your World' aims, through my experiences, to help others like myself to be better understood by themselves and the people around them.

There are two editions with the second edition being published during 2017.

My autobiography traces out my faltering start in life as I go through school and into my first job. This was followed by years of unemployment during which time I wrote the first edition in 1996/1997.

In the second edition (2017), I describe how I eventually managed to turn my life around, attain a PhD in Physics and longterm employment as a research scientist.

Compared with most people I perceive my surroundings quite differently due to Dyslexia, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome.
