In a relationship with an Aspie Man

While the book was informative, I felt like the adult version of an Aspie was described to be someone dumb or a child. They are very intelligent, as you have mentioned and very observant and connect the dot quickly. They just may not know what the emotional interpretation of your action means and may require you to spell it out. I read the book feeling like the man I'm with was a child or dumb and needed to be handheld. He is extremely intelligent and just needs me to be explicit with my desires, it doesn't mean he can't comprehend it, I just can't assume he understands my hints.

Great overview of Asperger's.

I read this book because my six year old may have Asperger's and I wanted to know what that meant before going through the process of getting him tested. This was really helpful and insightful. Good overview and some good tips as well.

Probably good for people who like support groups

Very light on hard facts and concrete content - same info could be gleaned from an hour of internet research. Probably perfect for the type of person who wants to go to a support group or write a feelings journal, which is definitely not me.

Good if you are looking for a brief overview

Does an adequate job of explaining Asperger's and does give some good basic tips. For the length of book I was hoping it would be a little more direct with the information provided and give more situational examples.

Vague

i was only able to find value on just a few statwments in this book. This book is too generalized with just a few specifics. I was hoping for a little more detail.

It helps to get a broad vision about the condition

If you have kids that's great to start understanding and get out if the fear. Not much here if the person is already an adult or yourself. Great info

Audio broke twice

Audio broke twice within the narration. Information from the book is basic, it may be useful for someone just curious about Asperger, there's nothing extensive or particularly insightful about the book, youtube videos would suffice regarding Asperger syndrome otherwise.

Nothing insightful

Found this so boring, it is not insightful at all and very much about telling us to suck eggs!

Good starting book

I am a female in my mid 20's who has been recently diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. This book is a good starting place to find out Asperger's and how people around me can help my condition. I did find the book to repeat its self alot and not really help in solving symptoms

Not worth a credit

The book was too brief and undetailed to be very helpful. More voluminous and quality rich material can be found by simply Googling.
