"Well-written, positive, yet never preachy, this practical book realistically describes what if feels like to be an adult with AS. It is highly recommended not only to adults on the spectrum and their family members, but to anyone who works with people on the spectrum. Neurotypical or Aspie, there is much to learn in these pages." --Chantal Sicile-Kira, author of Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum and Autism Spectrum Disorders
