5.0 out of 5 stars Your GPS if You Have AS (Asperger's Syndrome), 14 Aug. 2010

"If you don't know where you're going, any road'll take you there." -- George Harrison, 1997, released 2002

If you are an adult with Asperger's Syndrome (AS), then make this book a very close friend. This book has some excellent strategies on how to navigate on tricky social terrain. It is your GPS in getting around and getting along in the NT world.

I love the way this author pinpoints behaviors and reactions that are not limited to the autism/Asperger's (a/A) spectrum. Neurotypicals (NT) also have their share of quirks. They drum their fingers, which is very irritating, and engage in self stimming behaviors that are never called that unless observed in someone on the spectrum. This book shows how a/A and NT have more commonalities than differences.

The world is for everyone and not just NTs. This excellent book does an excellent job of trying to create a more even playing field, all the while taking into consideration the need for making accomodations on both sides.

For any adult on the spectrum, especially someone who has been recently diagnosed, this book will offer hope and provide explanations for lifelong undefined differences. Readers will appreciate this objective, yet compassionate view of AS, which is the spectrum partner to autism. People on the spectrum will feel empowered, justified and validated. "Imagine," John Lennon's 1971 magum opus says it so well -- "I hope someday you'll join us and the world will be as one."

This author is a Goodwill Ambassador, speaking on behalf of people on the spectrum and is someone who truly "gets" it. I think everyone, NT and a/A alike will benefit immeasurably from reading this stellar book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Collection of Useful Tips To Cope With Asperger Traits, 16 Sept. 2008
This book sure helps you to strengthen not only your knowledge but strategies of how to cope with your Asperger Syndrome and social lives. So I'd like to recommend this especially to those who remain undiagnosed as AS and bogged down in cruel reality; they may find their unexpected AS symptoms they had never recognized before! It is as if they could finally get out of a long tunnel. And they will get a chance to know themselves objectively.
Certainly, AS itself won't disappear for the rest of Aspies' lives, where they may feel distant and different from society. However, I'm sure they will make the best use of their own pros of AS!
