By Naoki Higashida
The No. 1 Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller.Written by Naoki Higashida when he was only thirteen, this remarkable book provides a rare insight into the often baffling behaviour of autistic children. Using a question and answer format, Naoki explains things like why he talks loudly or repeats the same questions, what causes him to have panic attacks, and why he likes to jump. He also shows the way he thinks and feels about his world - other people, nature, time and beauty, and himself. Abundantly proving that people with autism do possess imagination, humour and empathy, he also makes clear how badly they need our compassion, patience and understanding.David Mitchell and his wife have translated Naoki's book so that it might help others dealing with autism and generally illuminate a little-understood condition. It gives us an exceptional chance to enter the mind of another and see the world from a strange and fascinating perspective.The book also features eleven original illustrations, inspired by Naoki's words, by the artistic duo Kai and Sunny.

Rocket: A Simulation on Intercultural Teamwork is an interactive simulation that helps participants develop and hone important intercultural skills; the very skills, in fact, used in building-and operating-the International Space Station. The construction of the International Space Station-a world-class, state-of-the-art orbiting research facility-was no easy feat. Designed to support long-term exploration of space, such a complex and technical project required the collaboration of multiple international partners and was the largest scientific cooperative program in history-a true testimony to the importance of effective intercultural teams. Rocket mimics the real-life interactions and politics of the International Space Station Program, requiring participants to work together to build a model rocket. Rocket is based on qualitative interviews conducted at NASA's Johnson Space Center with astronauts, administrators, flight directors, flight controllers, engineers and trainers for space agencies from the U.S., Russia, Japan and Europe. This engaging tool is a fun and fresh take on training participants to work in diverse settings.
