This is by far, one of the best book on Autism that I have read. Though it was short, it had the most helpful information in it, and in a way that is understandable.  I have been researching Autism Spectrum disorders and Aperger's for a few years now, just because the subject interested me. The last few years though, I have thought that I have a few too many qualities to now wonder if I do in fact fall on the spectrum. The way that this book was laid out, was perfect. Start to finish, the author's process of her own discovery. I found the writing easy to read. I also found that there are many more things in my life that could be attributed to me having Aspeger's than I previously thought.  This book was not just about my own self-discovery, but I think that it will be a short, but thorough, book that I can share with my friends and family that can help them understand both why I am the way I am, and why I believe that I fall on the Autism spectrum.
