When I read this book, I entered into it with some scepticism. Not long into it I cried, the simlarity with my situation was emotionally hard to accept. Although some of the examples were on the extreme end of the scale, there were resonances with my own life with an Asperger partner. It is a useful read.

I have read so many books on the behaviours of Aspergics, books for partners and children, books on the traits and how to deal with the behaviours and they nearly always read like a flat pack furniture manual, writen in a different language, without pictures!!!!!! If you want to make some sense of your life and have even a slight chance of getting back the you that you once were or just learn more about the family member you think you know, then this book is invaluable!!!! It's well worth every penny and then some. It made me laugh and cry and helped me more than words can describe. it also went some way to helping other people in our family understand what I was trying to deal with on a daily basis. it validates your feelings and gives practical advice on how to change things for you. You won't regret buying this book!!!!!!

DON'TIGNORE THIS BOOK. I Cried and laughed. It is not easy to read if you are living with a Aspie man, but it will help you in learning to begin to cope with this vastly under-diagonosed condition. I really hope and pray this book helps anyone not really understanding and dealing with the ramifications of a suspected or diagnosed partner living with A.S.

Interesting reading about various case studies of relationships where one partner was Asperger's Syndrome. The book acknowledges how difficult this can be for the normal person and the strain it places on a marriage. This can become even greater if there are children with the syndrome.

For me this book is brilliant. It saved me from myself and a path of depression, anxiety and distress; as well as increasing my knowledge about life with an Aspie. The relief to know I'm not alone is overwhelming; that my marriage is so typical of an AS/NT union; and that it's not all down to me! The information that Kathy shares is so spot on and tackles difficult subject matter- such as 'should I stay or should I go?' and if 'one' stays- how to live a fulfilling life with a partner who is so different to yourself. As a nurse all my working life I had long suspected that autism and Aspergers wasn't new in this generation of children; but it was a field of research that remains vastly unexplored for adults. Thank goodness Kathy is working in this area and has chosen to write about it. Just to read it in print has reassured me that even in my darkest moments I was on the right track and can now tap into support groups, albeit locally or online; and get the support I need to stay with my lovely man; who himself is trying so hard to work with me so we stay together however bumpy our ride becomes. In recommending this book I can only hope that more people choose to read it to make the future a better place for all involved parties.
