Hi, I'm Tyler. This is a piece of my story. I hope you enjoy it
From: Tyler McNamer
RE: My Book Population One
Thanks for taking a minute to learn about my book. A big reason why I wrote my book was to help people understand what it's like to have autism.
I was diagnosed with autism at age 2. I communicated with a series of frustrated noises and physically "acting out". I started forming words at age 6; I was not able to speak in full sentences until I was 12.
I've been called a retard, dumb, and disabled. I've been bullied, picked on, and made fun of. They put me in "special" classes, and told me that I should not expect to reach my goals. I could not understand why people were so cruel simply because I was different. I process information and see the world differently.
I have chosen to accept my label of autism, not as a disability, but as an extraordinary ability.
I am not saying that having autism has been easy. I am not saying that I still do not have struggles. I also respect that autism affects each person in a different way. I do not pretend to represent all people with autism, I am simply telling my story so that I can help people better understand autism. That is my mission
I wrote my book, so that those without autism could understand how my autistic mind works. I would like to give you a front row seat to my life, mind, and my special way of looking at the world. I am in a unique position to help others understand what it's like to have autism. I know what it's like to be trapped inside myself.
Over the years, and with a lot of help from my teachers, I now have the ability to speak. It's now my responsibility to share my insights with others. Hopefully my experience will help others affected by autism, to find their voice as well. I hope that my writing, and the 50 chapters in my book will help people better understand those with autism; I would like to help them to have a better life.
I stand for those who do not have a literal voice. I know what its like to not be able to speak. If you would like to understand a little bit more about autism, from someone that has it. Please buy my book. Join me on my mission to help all people co‐exist together as a Population of One.

This book is a must read for every school administrator in America as Tyler's message is the well needed national prescription to once and for all end bullying in schools.

Why me and why you should read this book?
I have been a victim of others’ limiting beliefs about my abilities, and yet, I have become the victor in my life. I have become stronger because of the personal attacks, and more confident in my life as others have placed limitations on me. As a result, I am dedicating my life to serving and inspiring others who are different so they also can achieve their goals and blossom into the people they are true capable of becoming. I am in the process of achieving my goals.
I have the unique abilities of autism. I graduated from high school as a published author, and now a public speaker. It has been a difficult journey; there were many setbacks and obstacles along the way. It is hard to put yourself out there for others in the world to ridicule. There were naysayers who tried to convince me to accept less and not pursue my life’s biggest passions. There were non‐believers who ridiculed me for my differences. My challenge was to turn their disbelief in my ability into fuel for the driving force that allows me to succeed and achieve.
Perhaps you have yet to understand and accept autism. I feel your pain, I have walked in your shoes, I can empathize with you. It took me a long time as well. I did not even know that I saw the world differently than other typically developing people. I felt like I didn't need anybody, and needed to isolate myself from everyone. I still struggle with those feelings today.
Despite our differences and diversities, we can all get along and become a population of one to serve others. You can focus on your blessings instead of being discouraged by your challenges. You can learn how to cope with your gifts, thrive in life, and pursue your goals despite your challenges. Most importantly, you will learn how we can all co‐exist together in harmony as a Population of One to make our existence together better, more peaceful, more fulfilling and purposeful.
Thank you so much for taking some time to learn a bit more about my book. I genuinely hope that I can help you better understand autism. Click the button below and I will send you an autographed copy.
