Great overview of Asperger's.

I read this book because my six year old may have Asperger's and I wanted to know what that meant before going through the process of getting him tested. This was really helpful and insightful. Good overview and some good tips as well.

Probably good for people who like support groups

Very light on hard facts and concrete content - same info could be gleaned from an hour of internet research.
Probably perfect for the type of person who wants to go to a support group or write a feelings journal, which is definitely not me.

Good if you are looking for a brief overview

Does an adequate job of explaining Asperger's and does give some good basic tips. For the length of book I was hoping it would be a little more direct with the information provided and give more situational examples.

Vague

i was only able to find value on just a few statwments in this book. This book is too generalized with just a few specifics. I was hoping for a little more detail.

It helps to get a broad vision about the condition

If you have kids that's great to start understanding and get out if the fear. Not much here if the person is already an adult or yourself. Great info

Clearer Understanding

I was really looking for a book on Asperger’s syndrome that is more focused on Aspie adults, but the info was, nonetheless, good. I appreciated the clarification on syndrome versus disease, & that an NT can have a satisfying relationship with a person with Asperger’s.

Full of helpful info into the world Aspies

it's been said, children aren't born with manuals. Thanks to this book, I can understand and focus on my 11yr old son's strengths and work with him on his communication and reading body languages with the tips and pointers from this book.
I've read quite a few books on Aspies to better learn how to raise a healthier happier little angel. Sara's audio book (which is also available in paperback and Kindle format) complements previous books just by listening to this.
Bottom line, very good read or listen for anyone living with someone with Asperergers herein now referred to as Autism On The Spectrum as of just a couple of years ago.
