Customer Review: J. Bridges - I was just diagnosed with high functioning autism at age 20, and this book has been a great tool for me to go through and assess where I am at and what I need to work on. I am not yet finished with it but I am really enjoying going through it. I've copied some pages out of the book and taped them to my wall to help me with my day-to-day life, like the independent living skills assessment. This is a very cool book.

Customer Review: Amazon Customer - People with Asperger Syndrome (AS) who want to live up to their full potential as a productive member of society need to read this book. If you don't mind being ostracized except by your closest friends, then don't bother. But if you feel you have talents and interests that you'd like to pursue by getting and holding down a job, you'd better read this book. It will help you become aware of simple things to make interact with others less stressful, including your husband, wife or parent. Get this book and do the worksheets! They are fun and you will reap great rewards! Parents of older adolescents: this book will only be useful after your AS child has accepted their diagnosis, are aware of issues that prevent them from reaching their full potential, and are willing to at least keep an open mind enough to begin reading the workbook.
