Asperger syndrome and long-term relationships

Written by the wife of a man with Asperger syndrome (AS), this book should provide the answers to many of the questions asked by the increasing number of people in that situation. It explains how behaviours that may have appeared odd are the manifestations of AS, and shows how understanding can lead to change, or to greater tolerance. It also provides strategies for living successfully with characteristics that cannot be changed, pointing out that AS brings also enormous strengths to a relationship, and emphasizing the value of understanding.

This is an excellent book. All aspects of a relationship are covered with very practical suggestions for dealing with the difficulties caused by AS traits, while also describing the positive ways they can contribute, all in the context of the USA list of diagnostic criteria.
