After being diagnosed as an adult with Aspergers syndrome I have been trying to find out everything I can about it. This book by Tony Attwood has answered all my questions.
I have had a life-time to modify my behaviours but there are still things I can work on. Like knowing when to tell a white lie and not be brutally honest or just shutting up when people ask me about my current interest. Some things I can't change, like how I am super sensitive to touch, pain, smell and noise. One thing I read explains some of the reasons I have been able to adapt. I had a mentor in my Grandmother, who looking back also had the syndrome. I always knew she was important to me. It was her example that got me interested in all types of handwork. After reading this book I understand how her example and teaching set my life on a positive course. With out her it could have been very different.
If you are a teacher or have an Aspie in your life or if you know an Aspie this is a great book to read. I wish the Doctor's would have read it before they re-set my arm again.
