Strategies for workplace social success July 11 2011
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In learning about Asperger's to better understand my grandson and his difficulties connecting with his peer group, I discovered that I, too, have Aspie tendencies. This book gives logical understanding for emotional connections that neurotypical people (most of us) do without thinking about them. It explains why social connections are important in the workplace and gives strategies for achieving them for those to whom such connecting does not come naturally. The authors have experience working with troubled adults for many years and give anecdotes to support their recommendations.

The mother lode of vocational social thinking for people on the autism spectrum. Nov. 24 2014
By John D. Comegys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the authors told me this book had nuggets of good and useful information. She was too modest. This is the mother lode of good ideas about how to approach social communication and social cognition difficulties because it follows the structure of analyzing social communication and social cognition used by the Speech and Language experts such as the two authors. The next step is to apply this knowledge to work social and communication demands. This book makes a very good start. The needs are huge and variations infinite, so this work may not fit every specific need, but it is the best all around book of its kind on the market that I have found to date. I use it in several job clubs for adults with Asperger's Syndrome.

This book only delivers 50% of the title. It never really helps me understand why I should care. June 12 2013
By Ty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are great examples of good intentions gone bad, coupled with explanations of what is expected. However, there is little to convenience me that I should care. There is tons of talk about 'that is how things are done' without any regard for whether it is done best or most efficiently. Plenty of discussion on how to move to the "norms" way, without any consideration of meeting half way.
Recommended without reservation Oct. 11 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am a professional, high-functioning 37 year old woman diagnosed as being on the spectrum two years ago. This book is by far the most helpful resource I have encountered. It would not be an exaggeration to say that it changed my life. The concrete examples are extremely helpful.
