In thirty years of living with an adult Aspie, I can't recommend this delightful, insightful book enough. We have found Hoopman's books more helpful than Asperger themed textbooks. Each photo and caption describes the finer nuances of Asperger Syndrome beautifully; my Aspie-cat-person enjoys reading it too. I find Hoopman's combination of imagery and text tremendously helpful in better understanding particular Asperger behaviors that are part of the wonder of living with a brilliant, sensitive, unique "eccentric" Aspie. Even down to the exceptional hearing, sense of smell, need for predictable meals, bonding with those much older, fascination and curiosity with numerous subjects with an amazing attention to detail. Hoopman's insights have increased my compassion, and encourage Aspies to have more self-acceptance. Also excellent: Inside Asperger's Looking Out. Enjoy!
