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:

Can't tolerate the narrator's whistling the 's'!
Hurts my ears
I was so disappointed to find a terrible whistle in the voice of the reader. The content is good, not great, but I can only take it in small doses. It is painful to listen to.
