Summary
With his usual honesty, dry wit, and unapologetic eccentricity, John Robison argues that Asperger's is about difference, not just disability. He offers stories from his own life and the lives of other Aspergians to give the reader a window into the Aspergian mind. Equally important, he offers practical advice - to Aspergians, their parents, and educators - on how Aspergians can improve the weak communication and social skills that keep them from taking full advantage of, or even recognising, their often remarkable gifts
Summary
Presents an anecdotal guide to individuals with Asperger's and their families that offers insight into the Aspergian mind while outlining recommendations for improving communication skills and embracing differences
