The author claims to have been diagnosed with AS late in life, and the book is a distaillation of his own personal do's and don'ts. While the book is a laudable exercise as a tool for use with AS adults (young adults) it could be very limited. The fact that someone with AS (alledgedly) produces a guidebook for AS individuals does not in itself guarantee that the guidebook will be useful or contain interesting therapeutic insights. The latter does not follow inexorably from the former.
The book contains a great deal of personal advice, much of it derived from anecdotal recall by the author. The strength of this approach is that the author has direct experience of the events and outcomes. However, when these outcomes become elevated to general guidelines one is entitled to look for the experimental basis behind certain judgement calls. To be fair the author does provide a some literature references, but the overall tone of the book is largely autobiographical. Tony Attood gives the book a glowing preface which may influence your choice. It all depends on your needs.
