I read this short memoir slash informal guide for couples in which one person is "neurotypical" and the other an AS type, and knew it would have been hugely valuable to me in my relationship that just ended after 6 years had I known of it sooner. It illustrates the dynamics that get created because of the lack of awareness each person has of the way the other person's mind works and what that means for what each person needs. Then it gives useful, practical examples of how these dynamics can be shifted and to a critical extent overcome, through recognizing what is really going on, taking care of one's self, and creating an environment in which true communication is possible. I definitely recommend it.
I wish there more examples to illustrate how this plays out, as well as perhaps a little more information up front about what drew this couple together-- it is somewhat baffling from what is told how they managed to stick it out as long as they did (some 17 years!) before discovering Aspergers.
