About the Book

I’ve got a Stat for You is an honest and compelling autobiography of one young man’s journey to manage his autism and achieve his goals. Raised in a single parent household and encountering bureaucracy, bullying, and a lack of understanding from many around him, Andrew emerged from a turbulent childhood to win a Welsh National Young Volunteer Award, give speeches on his condition, and secure his dream job as a statistician at Manchester United Television.

From Wrexham to Buckingham Palace, and incorporating stories of The Simpsons, sport, music, and strange smells – I’ve got a Stat for You is a powerful and inspirational tale that shows how determination, a positive outlook, and the will to succeed can overcome all odds!

About the Author
Andrew Edwards

Amongst my volunteering, I raised funds with an Auction and Raffle Evening for Your Space, a local autism charity based in Wrexham. This resulted in Autism Friendly Gym Sessions taking place once a week during holiday time at Number One Health Strength Performance in Queensferry, North Wales from April 2019 to February 2020. For my totally unpaid work in organising the above event, I won a High Sheriff of Clwyd Community Award at a ceremony in March 2019.
