“It is a must for all those with an autism spectrum disorder in their midst!”

“When Barbara met Danny, she immediately recognized that he was not a typical young man and certainly not her equal in terms of social understanding. . . . Danny found in Barbara his mentor, social interpreter and someone to mother and father him. . . . The story of their relationship is written in the style of a conversation between the author and the reader as though you are best friends. Barbara discovers Danny’s diagnosis after she fell in love with him, and her journey of exploration, of a parallel universe inhabited by those similar to Mr Spock, who prioritize logic and facts over emotion and intuition, is a fascinating and entrancing story. The reader will become knowledgeable in the nature of Asperger’s Syndrome, not only from reading about Barbara’s observations, insight and experiences but also from reading her review of the academic literature and the quotations from other adults with Asperger’s Syndrome. She has also conducted a small survey of couples where one partner has Asperger’s Syndrome to compare experiences, and provide a list of resources for more information and support. . . . Those who have Asperger’s Syndrome will also value Loving Mr Spock."
