Definitely interesting

This is interesting because there are some people in my family with Asperger's or at least some form of autism, so they can learn more about themselves.

Impersonal Infomercial

The idea is there, and I can appreciate that people are trying to be more informed about Aspergers and autism. I really wanted to like this book. However, this book barely brushes the tip of the iceberg of information and paints a very narrow picture of the spectrum. In addition, the book is redundant at times, and contradictory at others. Finally, some of the language and beliefs are outdated and condescending. With the simple stating of information, and lack of compassionate, real life examples, this book comes of more as an infomercial.

Deserves a good review

This deserved my time. Finally, a book that gave me what I expected. One more detail: The narrator appeared to be so good that I would undoubtedly listen to it again. Maybe even more than one time. I simply cannot recall everything that's being said in all these audiobooks, so it would be worth reminding me of what was actually being said.

Learned a lot about aspergers

There are many things I liked about this book, but I can only say so much. I was able to understand every thing plainly, not even if the storyteller spoke words well, but also since the info in it included new facts to be learned.

I enjoyed this

Asperger's is a serious condition many people overlook. Someone I know, for example, says things that are completely inappropriate and has no clue of social cues or anything like that. He's a picky eater, is often in his own world, and lacks a sense of maturity or social skills. He's got talent for some particular things, however. So yeah, this reminded me of him.

Very disappointing

I can't make sense of the 5 start reviews. I found this book to be quite useless for me, as a parent seeking insights and advice on how best to support my 12 year old son who has just been diagnosed with Asperger's.
The book is a strange collection of advice on how to diagnose Asperger's, immediately followed by the advice to let professional do that. And it repeats a long list of medication several times in the book, only to quickly add that Asperger's can't of course be cured by medication. There are strange sectios that outline that Asperger's can't be cured by therapy (duh), and that having Asperger's is not a deliberate choice made by people with Asperger's (duh), and that Asperger's is not caused by upbringing.
All in all I was glad it was a short listen.

Great guide

This is a great guide for parents who are dealing with kids that have autistic tendencies. I personally like the way the author put everything. He didn't condemn it or wrote it off as a completely crazy brain dysfunction but also highlighted some positive aspects.
