This book is written by a group of mums which is probably why it is the most realistic and best book I have EVER read on Aspergers. I so enjoyed reading their stories and seeing how each family found their own unique and practical solutions to their problems. By the end I really cared about them and felt they were my friends because they felt as I do. This is the a must have book for all parents of children on the spectrum and for ALL 'experts'.
