Format: Paperback
This book brings a much more detailed perspective on early adult life on the autistic spectrum than many others. The fact that it is looking at AS through a man's eyes is also worth noting. The author touchs on career choice issues that many with AS have agonised over. To disclose or not to disclose being the Big Question. I won't spoil your reading by recounting the author's experiences.
The book describes 'relationships' in candid AS terms. There is a huge amount here for researchers and professionals to dwell on. However, the book is not a guidebook for managing relationships better (or even getting into them) and a crucial metacommentary on events in the book is largely absent.
Overall I enjoyed this book. Most readers will find the latter half of the book dealing with college and adult life more revealing than the first half, in my opinion. The book presents AS in sharp tones on occasion. It is a 'warts and all' narrative, but I highly recommend reading it.

I am an adult with Aspergers and bought the book after reading the great reviews here. Although it is a good book that shows some aspects of the Aspergers world to outsiders, for us who live and swim in it, this was an unsatisfying book. It merely scratches the surface of our world. Buy it if you want just a glimpse in.

Breaks Down Sensory Issues into Bite Sized Pieces Aug. 9 2007
By Joanna Keating-Velasco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I like how this book breaks down each sensory area and identifies it with a sensory character to help you navigate through the book. I really liked the "Incident, Interpretation & Intervention" table that walks you through many different specific sensory issues to help offer advice in addressing issues that arise. Offers strategies. I found the book quite insightful.
Making sense of sensory issues June 2 2011
By VCJAmommy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I LOVE this book! Quick, easy-to-read book on how the sensory system effects individuals with Asperger's Syndrome. Unfortunately, my son's school district has an OT who does not understand sensory issues. After reading this book, I was able to put into place several sensory activities (a sensory diet) to help my son.
