I have Asperger's Syndrome, an adult and married. I highly recommend ths book for adults too as the tips and strategies given are useful to anyone (children and adults) with Asperger's Syndrome and their respective Neuro Typical parents or parteners in life.
Unlike most books on Asperger's Syndrome, Berenda Boyd shows a great deal of respect, understanding and acceptance of Asperger's Syndrome. The book is in an easy to read unfussy style providing a clear guide that is broken down into understandable sections, practical and realistic, extremely well written book to just dip into or be read and re-read and keep referring back to time and time and again. Brenda really knows what she is talking about.
Brenda Boyd's positive attitude ensures readers will gain a sense of celebrating Asperger's as a life-enriching experience.
I especially like the very end of the book REPORT FROM PLANET ASPERGER which I always take with me where ever I am in the world. This shows people with Asperger's in their true light. Planet Asperger "would probably be kinder, safer and more truthful than this world" & "But perhaps the most special feature of all on Planet Asperger is the great respect given to children and their values."
I also liked how she compared Asperger's to Neuro Typicals akin to comparing trains to cars. As an Asperger, which ever way the tracks are laid, that's the way our train goes.
The intended audience is wide but the book's title could restrict the readership to parents and carers only, which would be a shame.
I highly recommend this book and think it is worth every penny.
