Written from a male and female perspective of two Asperger's adults it looks at:

o the positive aspects of Asperger's syndrome

o how these translate into everyday life

o whether Asperger's syndrome is in fact a disability

o strategies to gain mental and physical health as an adult with Asperger's syndrome.

The book aims to help adults gain self-esteem and get the most out of themselves as a unique adult with Asperger's syndrome. These courageous authors have drawn upon their personal experiences to provide an outstanding series of books aimed to support and enhance the quality of life for other Asperger adults.
