"There are many books that have been written about being in a relationship with a man with AS, but I have found none to be as insightful, accurate and understanding of both perspectives as this book by Rudy Simone. Each section of the book says it just the way it is; it is realistic, positive and unbiased." --From the Foreword by Maxine Aston, author of The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome, Aspergers in Love and The Asperger Couples Workbook.
A specialized book that will bring solace and encouragement to women in relationships with AS men. (Library Journal)

(From the Foreword by Maxine Aston, author of The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome, Aspergers in Love and The Asperger Couples Workbook)
The book is concise, well written, and an invaluable reference to women who are struggling in a marriage or dating relationship with an Asperger's man. (Autism and Asperger Syndrome Blog)

When I first met him I was so confused, lonely and, to be honest, frightened because I lacked understanding of why he was behaving in such an alarming manner - the shock the author describes is so accurate, I have been utterly astounded on many occasions where his behaviour was so unexpected and seemingly unconnected with its origins that I have been left speechless. Now that I know there are many other women out there (and perhaps men) who share my experiences, it puts a totally different perspective on my situation and I hope I can now move forward (with him or otherwise, as I simply don't know how it will play out).
Thank you so much, Rudy, for this amazing book, you have made an invaluable contribution towards the world's understanding of this condition and to increased tolerance and compassion towards people whose minds work in unique ways. It is true that, whilst I have been to hell and back in my relationship with this person, I have also found heaven in ways that I have never experienced in my conventional relationships and I am totally captivated by him - his talents, passion, mystery, vulnerability - and I am profoundly in love with him.
This has inspired me to look further into aspergers and have ordered aspergers for dummies to try and understand further. My son is also on the autistic spectrum so with all the help i am getting for him hopefully he will have less struggles and be able to cope with relationships as he gets older
A wife's feelings and emotions are mostly not believed nor listened to, when she is often screaming inside with frustration and desperation.
She is so often considered to be neurotic, and gets no understanding whatsoever.
The man - so often charming and affable to strangers, family or friends on the surface, is always believed and given every consideration with empathy. Really a great guy, so what's the wife's problem ........... ? Rudy Simone has captured it!
I was looking for more information and advice on Asperger's Syndrome as a way to help me better understand and communicate with my partner when I came across this book. At first glance I thought it was perfect but as I began reading I was greatly mistaken.
This has got to be one of the most offensive things I have ever read. Rudy Simone's generalisations left me doubting everything I knew about my partner and resulted in a distressing conversation where I was inconsolable for more time than this book is worth.
For each point she makes she seems to dwell on the negatives for several pages and then puts a sentence or two of something supposedly positive at the end.
My advice to anyone considering buying this book is: DON'T! There are far better books out there than this garbage written by what sounds like a bitter woman who didn't get what she was looking for in her own relationship.
I returned this to Amazon immediately for a refund and would encourage others not to waste their money on this sensationalised nonsense.
