520 "From the best freestyle surfer in the world, an inspiring
and moving memoir about his ascendance to the top of the
surfing world while struggling for most of his young life
with undiagnosed Asperger's syndrome Clay Marzo has an
almost preternatural gift with a surfboard. From his first
moments underwater (he learned to swim at two months old)
to his first ventures atop his father's surfboard as a
toddler, it was obvious that Marzo's single-minded focus
on all things surfing was unique. But not until late in
his teens, when this surfing phenom was diagnosed with
Asperger's syndrome, did the deeper reasons for his
obsession--and his astonishing gift for surfing--become
clear. Just Add Water is the remarkable story of Marzo's
rise to the top of the pro surfing world--and the personal
trials he overcame in making it there. Marzo endured a
difficult childhood. He was a colicky baby who his mother
found could be soothed only with water. Later, as he
entered school, his undiagnosed Asperger's made it tough
for him to relate to his peers and fit in, but his
relationship with the wave was elemental. Marzo could
always turn to surfing, the only place where he truly felt
at peace. Unflinching and inspiring, Just Add Water is a
brave memoir from a one-of-a-kind surfing savant who has
electrified fans around the world with his gift and whose
story speaks boldly to the hope and ultimate triumph of
the human spirit"--|cProvided by publisher.
