The good news is not only can a person with Asperger's Syndrome survive, but actually live the most noteworthy and fulfilling life. This audiobook shows you exactly how.

This book is a personal list of coping skills by a self-published Aspie author. With Autistic Spectrum running in my family, I felt virtually obligated to buy this for ideas of how to help. There are some useful nuggets, but this book is largely a set of observations by the author about his own life, with the characteristic lack of self-awareness of a person with Asperger's syndrome. It starts out with a section on "why Asperger's is not a disability, it's a blessing," in which the author touches on his faith to show that he is actually superior to people who think they are neurotypicals. He writes about various coping strategies that seem to work for him, and ends with some truly odd sections on trying to meet women. It might help if he did not call them "chicks." Given that all of his strategies are unsuccessful, I don't think they belong in a self-help book, except to illustrate the logic of people with Asperger's. I suspect there are better books for this sort of awareness. The book is inexpensive and I got it half price, so I don't feel ripped off.
