Publisher's Summary

Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger's syndrome, Asperger disorder (AD) or simply Asperger's, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development.
Many people are afflicted with and suffer from Asperger's, and there is little to no understanding by the general public in regards to this syndrome. There is a lack of awareness, so when people encounter someone who has Asperger's they view them strangely because aspies (as they commonly refer to themselves) act and communicate differently from the rest of society, so they are easily misunderstood.
In his book entitled Asperger Syndrome, author and Asperger expert Frank Ryan offers a comprehensive guide for understanding, living with, and treating Asperger syndrome.
Here are some of the topics covered:

Detailed overview and history of Asperger syndrome
Effects of the syndrome on social interactions
Effects of the syndrome on behavior and interests
Effects of the syndrome on speech and language
Effects of the syndrome on motor and sensory perception
Therapies and medication
Alternative therapies and treatments
Available aids
Children who suffer from Asperger
Adults who suffer from Asperger
How to deal with and manage a loved one who has Asperger
And much more

Can't tolerate the narrator's whistling the 's'!

I purchased this book last year but returned it because of the narrator. However, I really wanted to learn more on this topic so I purchased again. I struggled through til the end. Good information but the monotonous voice and s sound whistles drove me as nuts as my Aspie does!

Very Informative but Narrator Sounds Whistley

What did you love best about Asperger Syndrome: A Comprehensive Guide for Understanding, Living With, and Treating Asperger Syndrome?

The book has very good information, but I had trouble listening to the audio book because of the constant whistling sound of the narrators voice. Tried slowing down the speed and speeding up - neither helped.

Too Factual and monotonously narrated

Though the book provided good fav s and information, I personally found it hard to concentrate the way it was narrated. The narrator spoke so monotonous that it just seemed so dry and boring it was hard to stay focussed. I tend to like audio books so I can have efficient learning while doing other things like travelling or walking or commuting. For this one it may be best to be still and focus and in that case I think the standard book version and reading it myself would have been more effective.
