The Stewart Bounce

Introducing his show last night, Jon Stewart made the sweeping statement that The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida (Random House) is one of the “most incredible” books he has ever read. This resulted in one of the biggest “Stewart Bounces” in the history of the show, propelling the book to #1 on Amazon’s sales rankings.

The book was translated  from the original Japanese by David Mitchell and  his wife, KA Yoshida, who have an autistic son. Below, he explains to Stewart what the book taught them.
