Bought it for my teenage son, read it first and found it very useful myself so I bought another copy. Really liked the 'we're in this together' outlook and sharing of personal gaffs which made it relatable and prevented any feeling of being patronized by the author making the actual information easy to absorb and process.

A great book for kids and parents alike.I bought this book for my daughter,only to find im an Aspie too(well she had to get it from somewhere).It has lots of good advice in a way that teens and tweens understand.It's not boring at all.I find by us both reading it we can share experiences we have had and will have .I think it has brought us closer together,I think my daughter thought, she was the only one with these thoughts and behaviours.Now we can see what we do that others find off putting,when we feel totally normal.We can see the patterns fall into place about social rules,no one ever said there were rules,let alone taught us them.So yeah! well done Jenifer Cook O'Toole,you hit the nail on the head(for Aspies,no nails were ever needed,silly to say)Jenifer got it so right.

Really worth buying - whether your kids have Asperger's or not. It includes a very easy to remember and practice social code which makes sense for everyone. Written in a beautifully non-judgemental style that appeals.

Brilliant, can't recommend it too highly. My son has Aspergers and we were really struggling to help him, but this has told us everything we need for him.

Bought this for my 10 year old daughter and she has declared it her joint favourite book with Harry Potter. She’s just taken it to school with her to try and sneak in a bit of extra reading time. She says it ‘explains everything’. Thank you for writing it.

I thoroughly recommend this book. It is well written and the child it was bought for found it useful. It's useful for parents and carers of children with Aspergers too.

I really recommend this. My son has been diagnosed with ASD and this book is great for explaining social issues to him which he just doesn't understand.

It has also helped me to talk tohim by explaining things in a way he can understand. Highly recommended.
