Welcome to Asperger's

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.

dissatisfied

recently diagnosed with ASPERGERS, I'm looking for a book to help me, this isn't it. the author kept talking about money and his success. Well, it was MY money for his book and I would like it back please. false advertising, should be 29 ways HE achieved success. Narrated bad too

Disappointing book that is written from a religious standpoint

As someone with Aspergers who is rational and skeptical I was very disappointed to find out this book was written with an assumption that a god (think its Yahweh) exists. This straight away ruined the book for me. Such books should be written from a rational stand point. Very very disappointed.

Too much religion

There was too much reference to god and the suggestions were not in depth enough, just skimmed over. Disappointing.
