Review

Clear, concise, well-structured, and an easy read, 'Been There. Done That. Try This!' is an accessible compendium of wisdom from Aspie forebears and the dedicated bridgekeepers who have empowered them. Non-preachy, warm, often funny, the host of positive role models offer up a vast range of healthy choices for a new generation. This collection addresses all the major issues facing Aspies today and is the long-awaited instruction manual gifting future generations of Aspies with the ideas, strategies, and understanding that will empower them in their own diverse journeys. --Donna Williams, author, artist, autism consultant and public speaker

Under the auspices of the venerable Asperger's expert Dr. Tony Attwood, leading self-advocate Anita Lesko, and "community organizer" Craig Evans comes a full chorus of voices from the autism spectrum: young, old, male, female, and global. Together, these self-advocates offer perspectives, life stories, and advice for not only living, but thriving in an often inhospitable world. Been There. Done That. Try This! addresses every major stressor in the life of a young adult with Asperger's, from the personal to the interpersonal, from schools to offices, from trying to pass to disclosing a diagnosis. Each issue has its essayists anecdotal advice matched with Dr. Attwood's professional insight, rounding out a comprehensive approach to meeting and defeating the challenges we face. --Daniel Heinlein, Host of I Am Autistic, The Autism Channel

Resonating profoundly with my own difficulties, the Aspie mentors within this book validate our challenges from their personal experiences. By giving positive practical advice, the Aspie mentors better equip us for many aspects of our everyday living. This is an outstanding guide that every Aspie should own! --Barb Cook, Editor-in-Chief of Autism Aspergers Network Magazine and co-founder of Australian Autism Aspergers Network Inc.

A truly marvelous book filled with practical help and solutions. This will be of great value to individuals with Asperger s and their family members! --Fred R. Volkmar, M.D., Irving B. Harris Professor, Director of Child Study Center at Yale University School of Medicine, Chief of Child Psychiatry at Yale New Haven Hospital and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders

Product Description

If you only buy one book to improve your life this year, make it this one.

Temple Grandin, Liane Holliday Willey, Anita Lesko, Stephen M. Shore, and many other Aspie mentors, offer their personal guidance on coping with the daily stressors that Aspies have identified as being the most significant, in order of urgency - anxiety, self-esteem, change, meltdowns, depression, friendship, love, and much, much more. Based on years of personal experience, this book is packed with advice from Aspie mentors who have all been there and done that!

World expert Dr. Tony Attwood rounds up each chapter with professional analysis and extensive recommendations. He includes essential information on destructive strategies that may look attractive, but that have counter-productive effects.

Including full color artwork from Aspie artists showing visually how they interpret each stressor, this is THE inspirational guide to life for young adults, the newly diagnosed, and as a life-long reference for anyone on the spectrum - written by Aspies for Aspies.
