Product description


"An essential resource for people with autism. Soraya provides tools that enable people with autism to not only stay on their own path, but also feel proud of themselves for doing so." ~Scott Barry Kaufman, PhD, author of Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined

"A great book filled with advice that's based on the life experience of adults on the autism spectrum. It's a good addition to any adult autism library." ~John Elder Robison, New York Times bestselling author of Look Me in the Eye, Raising Cubby, and Be Different

"Being able to live a happy, safe, creative, and self-supporting life is the fondest hope for people on the spectrum. Lynne Soraya's book is a must-read for autistic people and those who love them." ~Steve Silberman, editor of Wired magazine and author of NeuroTribes

"A practical, empathic guide for adults with ASD. This book is a must read for adults with ASD, their families, and those committed to educate, support, and mentor them." ~Sam Goldstein PhD, author of Raising Resilient Children with ASD

"Lynne Soraya provides a comprehensive blueprint for building a life, from managing finances and housekeeping to navigating the complex social dynamics of love and friendship." ~Carlin Flora, author of Friendfluence

"Lynne distills important advice into a readable and practical text that is anchored both by her own experience and by the voices of other autistic individuals." ~Landon Bryce, founder of ThAutcast.com and author of I Love Being My Own Autistic Self

"Straightforward, inspiring, and packed with useful tips that will help adults who are on the autism spectrum to gain confidence and enjoy their lives." ~Alice Boyes, PhD, Psychology Today blogger

"I would highly recommend this book to not only autistic adults but also to parents, teachers, therapists and human resource managers, as it provides the kind of insight into autism that only an autistic person can provide." ~Kym Grosso, MBA, Psychology Today blogger

"What I love about Lynne's book is that she offers advice in a non-shaming way. She addresses specific challenges of autism, but also focuses on strengths. Lynne recommends mindfulness...and asks the reader many questions that require personal reflection." ~Mama Be Good blog

"Throughout this book I thought about my daughter. I thought about how, as she grows older, she may encounter, at least, some of these issues. Thought-provoking and insightful book." ~Emma's Hope
