This is a much needed work that addresses the needs of adults with autism. It covers areas such as finances and relationships and the author never loses his sense of humor. I love this author's quick wit and many times I found myself laughing over some clever phrase or original description. For any adult on the spectrum, make this book your best friend when you need a quick consultation. This book is very helpful in navigating in NT (neurotypical) territory. A must read for all!
This is a positive book about how to live a full life with Asperger syndrome, covering both the practical and emotional aspects of independent living... encouraging people to take responsibility and not make excuses. While I think it contains a lot of useful advice and much truth that people need to hear, I suspect that for many of the people who would benefit from hearing it the most these strong words would sting like vinegar. When you are a person with low self-esteem and learnt helplessness sometimes having someone tell you to love yourself and not give up is difficult to take. If you are ready to hear it though, this book is a refreshing and empowering read.
