All you need to know

A very comprehensive and easy to read review of Asperger's Syndrome. I learned more from this book than any others.

Refreshing perspective

This book is very helpful for someone trying to evaluate whether their spouse may have AS, as a prelude to seeking a professional evaluation. It provides enough varying descriptions of how AS can manifest such that you can get a good sense as to whether this is a possible diagnosis to pursue. As I'm guessing with other readers, my spouse has been diagnosed with a variety of mental health conditions, none of which perfectly fit his behavior, and I was looking for some insight into whether AS is something to consider. This book helped me understand that this very well may be his true problem, and now I have the tough task of finding a qualified professional local to me. (Unfortunately, most AS experts are unfamiliar with AS in adults, and even less so in very high-functioning, intelligent adults, who succeed in compensating for their disability so well that it's difficult to detect...though still devastating to their lives.) Fantastic book. Breath of fresh air to read the real world examples of behavior that I'm all too familiar with, and hear it named for what it is.

Outstanding!! Could have been my biography!

This book is full of informative examples and valuable advice. My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it together. My Wife tells me it is as if somebody has observed our life and written a book about it.

Outstanding Aid in Understanding Asperger's Syndrome

Solutions for Adults with Asperger's Syndrome is an excellent book! I very much like the layout of the book in which important information is placed in summary "blocks" for easy referral when needed. It is easy to read and yet contains accurate detail to assist anyone in determining why a person may demonstrate behaviors that are seemingly unexplainable. Thank you Juanita Lovett, you have made a great contribution to helping many people!

A Place of Honor

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. The chapters are logically laid out and clearly identified with the subject matter being covered. Helpful vignettes involving people with AS are included along with discussions about the vignettes and the issues involved. One of the greatest services this book does is to state that AS, which is the spectrum partner of autism is not a mental illness, but a neurobiological condition. AS is NOT caused by poor parenting and neglect; there is no medication for it and stupid myths such as these have long been disproved as being the crocks of bull that they always were. Examples of interaction; discussion of accomodations being made for people on the autism/Asperger's (a/A) spectrum on jobs and parents with AS are included. This is a book no adult with AS should be without. It is also an excellent teaching tool for the neurotypical (NT) population as well. This book has something for everybody and I can't recommend it highly enough.
