Product description

Review

Tony Atwood is one of the greatest resources in the Asperger world and this is said to be the Asperger's Syndrome bible so make sure you keep it on you shelf, even if you don't read it cover to cover. It has loads of great information. -- One Girl Circus blog This book really is a must-have resource for all academic libraries, college psychology classes, parents and relatives of those with AS, clinicians and medical professionals, teachers, and of course, those of us who have AS. -- Autism Spectrum Quarterly 'This is the single best book currently available on Asperger's Syndrome (AS)... It presents a very readable but highly authoritative account based on Attwood's extensive clinical experience and a wealth of case studies, research and personal accounts... Essential reading for parents and families (as well as others coming into contact with individuals with AS) -- Debate This is a comprehensive and thorough discussion of Asperger's. Atwood excels at making this text not only an easy read, but also a valuable reference. The book is full of knowledge and true life stories of those affected by Aspergers. -- Spectrum Magazine This comprehensive guide to understanding Asperger's Syndrome is easy to read. It has a very practical approach and will appeal to young people with Aspergers Syndrome, parents, carers and professionals alike. Understanding is helped by personal insights and practical strageties for those with AS and for carers too. For readers who do not have a lot of time there is a quick reference index to go straight to the aspect you want to know about first. Newcomers to the subject will find the glossary invaluable. If it whets your appetite there are 22 pages of refernces for further study and a section on further resources. -- CaN! Wales Carers Network and Autism Academy Bulletin All in all an excellent resource for anyone's shelf who comes into contact with Asperger's Syndrome. The Key points and strategies section at the end of each chapter in invaluable for finding that key piece of information you need without having to read the whole chapter. There is also a very useful frequently asked questions chapter and a section with useful resources for anyone wishing to find furter information on a particular aspect of AS, as well as literature and educational tools. Does exactly what it state on the tin! -- COTSS PLD Newsletter This is a very informative read which is aimed at not only the professionals, but also the parents, teachers and family members of those people suffering from Aspergers Sundrome. It will also serve as a comfort for those people who have either been diagnosed with AS or have an inkling that they might be on the spectrum as it details not only the symptoms but also coping mechanisms. Personally speaking, this was a comfort to me because I fell that I am on the spectrum somewhere and it's enough for me, now, to understand that...The language is never too technical, and has quotations from Hans Asperger (who first diagnosed the condition) as well as excerpts from Aspies themselves - which add another dimension to the book. As a first step into the world of Aspergers Sundrome this is a perfect start. It has a whole list of resources at the back for people, should they wish to take their reading further, including a list of websites as well. An informative read, I can not recommend this book highly enough. -- bfkbooks.com 'Have a question about Asperger syndrome? Chances are it's answered in this comprehensive guide by Australian Tony Attwood. Attwood has been studying, writing about and speaking about AS for many years, and has gained a reputation for being knowledgable, approachable, and practical in his advice and thoughts. Attwood also manages to be enormously respectful to people with AS -- something that can't be said for all such guides. One of the nicest and most surprising aspects of this com --Library Journal
