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.

Good overview of AS itself. Not a book for aspie adults looking to improve themselves.
Very good and interesting info, good structure, easy to follow and nicely narrated.
Enjoyed this book and probably would buy the book to remind myself in writing.
What disappointed you about Living With Asperger Syndrome?
Far too many factual errors (which existing in the written book). Clearly Joan Gomez has no real experience with this complex syndrome and it just regurgitating things she's picked up from other sources. This lack of understanding creates a barely coherent explanation of Asperger Syndrome. I'd give this 9/10 if it was a student project, but as a professionally written medical text 1/1.
The narrators voice also just didn't suit the subject matter.
Has Living With Asperger Syndrome put you off other books in this genre?
No - Although Audible should be very careful about how medical books are sourced. There is a lot of bad choices in this genre as well as some excellent ones. Unfortunately the badly written or misguided biases are starting to overtake the useful ones.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
A northen male accent just didn't seem to suit talking about "giving lots of love" to a child. Not sure why, it just sounded infantile.
What character would you cut from Living With Asperger Syndrome?
