    Well, don't make jokes around him or be sarcastic, it really annoys us when people start laughing and we don't know why.
    Yes, that's important - avoid sarcasm as sufferers won't notice it - they'll take you literally. Some can "learn" sarcasm and understand (well, one of my friendss seems to) but only if they know how each person does it, and they are a mild case.

    I find it very difficult to determine when anyone is being sarcastic in real life and find it impossible to do so online. I also can never tell when people are making joks about me or are actually veing serious, which can be really annoying.

    I read it in a day too. We were told by our English teacher to read it and I'm really glad I did.

    You should. Mine was quite expensive because I accidently ordered the hardback copy, but you could get it out the library or borrow it off a friend for free
