Great for kids, some for adults

I have a spouse that was diagnosed with ASD in his 30's. I chose this book in hopes of understanding him better. Some of the content was very relevant, some was more relevant to children but overall, it was still a good, informative, concise read.

A helpful first step!

I’m 20 years old and was recently diagnosed with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder. I can’t afford therapy from an autism specialist so I’ve started researching ways to do it on my own. This book is a great start! Thanks so much to the author!

Extremely helpful

I am 35 years old and recently diagnosed . Listening to this book read like my diary. I plan on sharing this book with family and friends. I never knew I had it but it seems others did and I'm grateful that they took the time to understand me. I just wish that they would informed me about it. My wonderful life partner picked up this trait in me because of his mom who is a psychotherapist and knew a lot about it. I got this book because I personally wanted to know more. I'm very thankful for this book. It will help others explain what I've been trying and struggling to tell them. I find comfort in knowing that this is a trait of mine and not me just being a weirdo. I do plan on trying some of the therapy's mentioned. The spoke is wonderfully written And definitely gives insight into a mind like mine. Thank you very much.

Don't try to fit a person into the description

Generalizations are not 100% for all AS persons. Some are right-on, and others are not applicable.

Describes me exactly

I’m 36 years old and was tipped off that I might “be on the spectrum” about a month ago. I’ve read everything I can get my hands on about Asberger’s. After many personality tests etc., I’m fairly sure I have Asberger’s.
Then I listened to this book. The number of times my jaw dropped because I couldn’t believe how well it describes me is too many to count. I want to show this book to everyone I know, especially my ex’s. :)
This book is easy to digest and easy to listen too. It sounds well researched, and it’s very too the point. Not too long either which I liked, because it’s easier to recommend to people.
I’m so glad this book exists. 5 stars.

Great introduction for me

I am in the beginning of learning about this syndrome. I have ADD and clear compact information works best for me. The chapters were informative but didn’t drag into too much detail. I provided some ideas, skills, and suggestions that I can put into use quickly. I was able to listen to this book during my quiet morning time. THANK YOU for making this a quick book. That is rare to find that is this good.

My boyfriend has Aspergers

I found it very helpful!!! I didn't know much about this Syndrome. I met my boyfriend 6 months ago. I was having a very difficult time understanding why he did or didn't do certain things. I love him very much. I did not want to walk away!
Now I realize I don't have to!!! I've been a Caregiver for 11 years. I have a lot of patience and I'm an Empath.
I feel we can make this work.
Thank you!

helpful

as a mother of a 12 year old that has Asperger's I have noticed that there are a lot of changes and his behavior this book truly did help me understand a lot more but at the same time I still need more information about that preteen age group cuz he's not a child anymore. He's not a teenager he falls right in the middle so he's actually showing signs from both. so I believe explaining the transition between the two groups would greatly help parents or giving them a resource that they could look up.

Disappointing

Listened through as much of it as I could. It is framed sympathetically but contains a lot of inaccuracies and doesn't address more recent research pertaining to Aspergers in females, nor does it acknowledge that Aspies are actually often hyper-empathetic, instead presenting the old and debunked myth that empathy is lacking. The bad writing and sound quality just topped it off as an item I wish I hadn't wasted time and money on. Would not recommend.

Aspergers syndrome

Great oversight into the needs of someone with Aspergers. I just wish more people would read. It would make my world a better place

Helpful but brief.

Since I have Asperger's, outling traits of people with Asperger's was not that surprising except for the trait about the lack of motor skills which doesn't seem to apply in my case. More on strategy to help neuro typical's to understand and work with those of us who are only too happy to show, explain, and impart our knowledge/understanding of the things that we happen to be very interested in, would be great. For getting the information about Asperger's out there. Great job.
