Reviews of the book on Amazon

This would be a good first book for someone who wants to learn more about Asperger’s Syndrome (AS). Dealing with people suffering from AS can be challenging, which is why having the right source of information is necessary. Each chapter is professionally written, showing that the author really knows what he’s talking about. As most books address Asperger’s Syndrome in children, this book helps by broadening the field of understanding specifically for adult sufferers. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to know about AS or if they want to learn how to communicate better with someone who has AS.
This is an excellent overview for both the clinical reader and for parents. I was particularly appreciative of the compassion that Dr. Roberson shows for the patient with this disorder.
…a good balance between brevity and completeness.
