I have a 17 year old with Aspergers and John Elder gives some good insights and advice for myself and my son I would highly recommend. An interesting read Very useful. Detailed Explained Funny Wrapped coherently for any member of the family to understand their Aspergian as John himself would call him fellow Its a wonderful insight to the evolution of the individual into his later days To perhaps interpret the future or understand the past Its a book for the moment Thank you, John. It might be less applicable to female Aspies, but it was still incredibly helpful, has some handy tips, website recommendations etc. An excellent book with great insights into life on the spectrum I bought the book for my almost 18 year old son and am reading it myself before I give it to him I am sure he s going to identify with much of the contents of it I would absolutely recommend it to any parent with a child on the spectrum or indeed any agency which provides care or intervention for those on the spectrum. Very enlightening. Being myself an Aspie, I must say that John s book affected me deeply On the one hand, I am touched by the Aspie typical phenomena he describes in a rarely seen perspicuity, on the other hand he challenges me by stipulating a tough self disciplinary program for adapting to the society with its norms What I am missing is the point of the permanent stress Aspies are exposed to in everyday life The title of John s book is somewhat misleading by all his statements that Aspies are definitely different, he recommends to adapt to the world of the so called Nypicals I am not convinced that this may be a good way for reducing Aspies stress level Aspies have a deep desire to be congruent with their nature. This book is perfect for an older teen as he learns to better fit into normal life in the work environment. The author of the New York Times best selling Look Me in the Eye returns to help Aspergians, and even ordinary geeks, embrace being different and fix the things that hold them back in life With his usual honesty, dry wit, and unapologetic eccentricity, John Robison argues that Asperger s is about difference, not disability In this book he offers stories from his own life and from the lives of other Aspergians to give the listener a window into the Aspergian mind Equally important, he offers practical advice to Aspergians, their parents, and educators on how Asperians can improve the weak communication and social skills that keep them from taking full advantage of, or even recognizing, their often remarkable gifts PLEASE NOTE When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio
