You Don't Look Like Anyone I Know



I have prosopagnosia (commonly called face blindness)—a rare neurological disorder that makes it impossible for me to reliably recognize people by face. Growing up, I took what cues I could from context, voice, gait, hair. But I never understood exactly what was so confusing. I was anxious all the time; I feared I must be crazy. Things just didn’t make sense (but I pretended they did). This book tells the story of how I solved the medical mystery. And, more importantly, it’s about how I came to finally trust my own perceptions.
