Publisher's Summary

Support for those with a family member on the autistic spectrum. Asperger syndrome, which affects communication and social interaction, is a neurological disorder which is believed to affect more than 200,000 people in the UK. Unlike others on the autistic spectrum, those with Asperger syndrome often want to communicate, and to share their lives, but don't know how.
This audiobook looks at how families with an "Aspie" can help them be accepted for what they are, to lead full lives and to make the most of their unique gifts. It explains the common signs of Asperger syndrome in babies and young children, and gives advice to parents on how to overcome any difficulties at school that an older child might face. Advice is also given on the vulnerable teenage years and how to promote relationships with others. This audiobook also looks at the historical background to this disorder, and at great thinkers with Asperger type characteristics, including Einstein.

Markedly dry but infinitely informative

While I enjoyed the narrator's accent (Scottish?) and the wealth of information he conveyed, this is very much an academic perspective on AS.

So while it wasn't particularly easy to get through, if you or someone you care about has AS, you need to read this book. Well worth every minute and every cent.
