Library Journal
This collection of writings by people on the autism spectrum offers an honest portrayal of how these individuals struggle in various aspects of their day-to-day lives. Edited by Santomauro (Asperger Download: A Guide To Help Teenage Males with Asperger Syndrome Trouble-Shoot Life's Challenges), the mother of a son with Asperger's, and with a foreword by Tony Attwood (The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome), the book presents moving and inspirational stories for anyone who has a person with autism in his or her life. In addition, it provides practical advice for those on the spectrum: Temple Grandin contributes a chapter on how to get hired and keep a good job, while other writers discuss how they achieved their goals in education, careers, relationships, creativity, and other areas despite—or because of—the quirks of their disability. VERDICT This collection should interest higher-functioning individuals with autism and their families, as well as people who teach or work with adults and children with autism.—Terry Lamperski, Carnegie Lib. of Pittsburgh
