I could rant for a long time about this book as someone who has been struggling with Asperger's Syndrome (ASD but let me keep it brief. This isn't a book about how anyone with ASD can learn to live with this debilitating condition. It's not even about how the general population of those with ASD have learned to survive. Instead this book is best described as:" I had such a sad experience in college but because of being extremely lucky throughout my life there is a silver lining and a happy ending, If I can be lucky so you can you!". The mistake the author makes is assume that everyone with ASD can relate to a well spoken, well skilled and highly intelligent lucky individual. In reality most people with ASD get frequently fired, have a very high probability of committing suicide and in general lead miserable lives as adults. By the way, how do you know someone has a very high IQ? They will tell you immediately, and the author certainly does in chapter 1 on page 19 second paragraph.… (mere)

This was a very engaging book. The Author was very open about their life dealing with Asperger's Syndrome.

Reflecting the views of parents, professionals and those with AS themselves, this book tackles issues that are pertinent to all teenagers, such as sexuality, depression and friendship, as well as discussing topics like disclosure and therapeutic alternatives that are more specific to those with AS. This book aims to make the transition from child to adult as smooth as possible, providing a survival guide to adolescence.

The title is incredibly misleading. I thought this book would be full of useful information, but it was more like a memoir. A memoir of things that happened to the author because she has Asperger's and how to recognize if you're the same way. She acknowledges that we're all different, but then goes into detail only on what she's experienced. The focused travel tips were pretty much the only new and useful information I got from the book.
