An extremely informative and clear book, 26 May 2008
After my son's diagnosis two months ago at the age of six I have been reading various books about Asperger's. I stumbled across this gem of a book and would thoroughly recommend it as a fabulously potted explanation of the spectrum of symptons and characteristics of AS. I have found that explaining the syndrome to others can be quite tricky but this book accomplishes this and can be read and understood in thirty minutes. I would suggest that all close family members, friends, teachers and fellow pupils would benefit hugely from this little book. It is delivered in palatable sections that cover all the main aspects of Asperger's behaviour and in a way that is sympathetic and calm. I find myself re-reading this book every month to remind myself of my son's perspective - it's quite invaluable.
