A very well written and easy to read book. Not a book for professionals, but written for parents and relatives of somebody who may have this condition. Gives a good insight as to how the affected individual may feel and think and also offers solutions to everyday problems experienced by somebody living with an aspergers sufferer. The book also explains behaviour which to the outsider may appear inappropriate or unreasonable, but once you have read this book you start to understand how and why this behaviour occurs. This in turn helps you to look for solutions and to offer support more easily to the sufferer. Aspergers Syndrome is not an easy condition to live with, either for the sufferer or the people in contact with them, but a little understanding and insight into the condition means that the sufferer can be helped to feel less anxious and more supported, which in turn seems to lessen some of the symptoms. A very worthwhile read for anyone who has to interact with somebody suffering from this condition.

If you are looking for a respectable, straightforward guide to Asperger Syndrome then you will be happy with Tony Attwood's well written and thoughtful offering. This book is one of the best sellers on the subject, and has remained popular despite many similar books continually coming on to the market. It covers diagnosis, social behaviour, language, interests and routine, motor clumsiness, cognition, sensory sensitivity, and frequently asked questions, and includes helpful summaries of practical advice at the end of each chapter. It is easy read but still a very comprehensive introduction, and while it focuses mainly on children, it can be relevant to adults with the diagnosis too. It's not perfect, but nonetheless I consider this book to be helpful and sensitive, and if you are the parent of a child with AS and you are only going to read one book on the subject then this one would be a good choice.

This book is by far the best publication i have ever read concerning AS. Whether you have just received a new diagnosis or you are already living with the effects of an AS child in your family, this book is an essential guide. It will expand your knowledge on the areas you are already familiar with, and also give you a firm, clear understanding of the whole spectrum of AS. When i read this book, my son had just received his diagnosis and it helped me as a parent understand. Nearly two years on i am still dipping into it for advice. I would strongly recommend this book. It is reader friendly, terminolology is clearly explained. It is not a typical heavy duty text book that has be ploughed through! When you read this book, it as if you are being introduced to your own child. If you can understand the AS, then you can understand your child 100% better!

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I have AS and it has helped me to understand myself better. It covers all the main aspects of AS, whilst pointing out that every case is different (more useful than case-specific autobiographies in my view). It is very easy to read whilst still being incredibly informative.
If you have AS, or if you have a friend/relation with AS, you need to read this book.
