Der Straßensammler 
Peter Schmidt
The Street Collector
The Incredible Adventures of an Autistic World Traveler

Travel is by nature unpredictable. And autistic people hate unpredictability.

Der lange Abschied 
Hans Jürgen Herber / Ulrich Beckers
The Long Goodbye
When my wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at 40

When a woman is diagnosed with an incurable illness at the age of forty and her husband pledges to stand by her side through everything and anything, it may seem self-evident.

Felix Klieser
Footnotes
A French Horn Player Without Arms Conquers the World
In collaboration with Céline Lauer

As a four-year-old, Felix Klieser announced to his parents out of the blue: “I want a French horn!” Young Felix rejected the local music school’s suggestions to try a recorder or xylophone instead. Nothing other than a French horn would do, despite the fact that he was about as ill-suited for that instrument as he could possibly be: he was born without arms. But Felix took lessons and practiced like someone possessed. And he was successful.

Kein Anschluss unter diesem Kollegen 
Peter Schmidt
This Connection Is Not in Service
An Autistic at Work

Even as a child, Peter Schmidt knew everything about planets, deserts and volcanoes. And earning his degree in geophysics was a breeze. But when he wants to turn his passion into a profession, the problems begin. He doesn’t recognize his colleagues’ faces, and he is so honest with clients that he undermines his boss’s marketing strategy. This is because Peter Schmidt has autism: highly gifted in his specialization, but socially handicapped.
