5.0 out of 5 stars Subtly amazing, 3 April 2012
A someone with Asperger's Syndrome, I have been plagued by anxiety and depression for much of my adult life. I read another book that recommended Mindfulness as a means of dealing with the dreaded 'black dog' and I am so glad that I followed this tip up.

I've now read several books on the subject, but this one is, in my opinion, by far the best. The writing style is very easy to read (unlike some other titles that get bogged down with endless quotes), the instructions are simple and clear to follow and, after following the eight-week programme more or less to the letter, I have found that there have been definite changes in my life.

There have been sections of some other books on the condition that have not struck chords with me - some of the symptoms just don't apply to… Read more
The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome by Tony Attwood

Whilst I admire anybody who attempts to create a 'complete guide ' to any condition (and this is about the closest thing to that for Asperger's syndrome currently on the market), I'm afraid that asking a clinician to write the definitive work on a condition he doesn't have is, to me, like asking an Englishman to write the definitive guide to the French way of life. However knowledgeable the person claims to be, there is always going to be room for misunderstanding, misinterpretation and a certain lack of authenticity in the account compared to one written by a French native. The same is true here. Parts of this book I found accurate, helpful and fair; other parts made me so angry and… Read more
