Thomas Edison. Albert Einstein. Half of NASA. These are all extremely intelligent, successful adults who made great contributions to society and who are also suspected of having the developmental disorder called Asperger Syndrome. This relatively new diagnosis is being increasingly applied to both children and adults-in fact, it is now seen as running in familes. There are a lot of books on how to successfully raise children with AS, but until now, adults were left to figure it out on their own. Dr. Juanita Lovett specializes in treating adults with AS and working with their families. In this book she shows those adults and their loved ones how to maximize the benefits of AS (including intense concentration, above-average intelligence, and high creativity) while minimizing the drawbacks (including lack of social skill, inability to connect emotionally with others, and propensity toward rage). This important new book will help thousands of adults with AS learn to live happier, more fulfilling lives.… (més)

Summary of Asperger's Syndrome - some common features
- Difficulty with communication
- Difficulty with social relationships
- Inability to understand others' state of mind
- Verbal differences (too loud/too soft voice, literal use of language)
- Intense special interests
- Problems with motor coordination
- Difficulty with change
- Inflexible routines
- Unusual response to stimuli (Page 28)

"We know that individuals with AS are predisposed to follow rules. in fact, their insistence on following rules themselves and trying to enforce the rules on others is often a cause for their being ostracized as children. (Page 62)

"It has ben noticed that many individuals with AS are in a state of chronic hyper-arrousal, although we're not sure just why yet." (Page 5)

"Many individuals with AS have dietary intolerances for substances such as gluten or lactose. There is also an increased risk in AS for immune system reactions..." (Page 68)

Although I am interested in this topic, it was slog to get through this book, thus it gets 3 stars.

One thing I quite liked about this book is that the cases and the discussion are in different fonts. ( )

Amazon-user review: This book deserves special kudos for addressing issues directly involving adults with Asperger's Syndrome (AS), e.g. marriage and employment. For people who have AS or are directly involved with someone who does, make this book your best friend. I like the way the author says that AS "does not become fatal" nor is it miraculously cured by the time a person turns 18. AS is not limited to children; children with AS become adults with the condition. Lovett's darts hit the description, definition and issues in re AS right in the bull's eye and punctures neurotypical (NT) myths about AS. This book deserves a place of honor.
