Man Cures Asperger’s With the Help of Howard Stern

David Finch was a former marketing exec living in New York and dealing with the crippling weight of Asperger’s Syndrome run amok when he turned to the most unlikely of sources for inspiration – the King of all Media!

With his marriage and work life in disarray, Finch began studying the conversational habits and behaviors of famous talk show hosts like Howard Stern, David Letterman and Regis Philbin in order to mimic their flawless delivery and knack for sociability. A self-professed “drama geek” since high school, Finch used his innate ability to inhabit a part in order to absorb the best social qualities of each popular persona.

No longer a marketing engineer, David Finch now makes a living giving speeches to large groups of professionals and has just written a book about his experiences called The Journal of Best Practices: A Memoir of Marriage, Asperger Syndrome, and One Man’s Quest to Be a Better Husband in stores now.
