About the Author

Wendy Lawson, who has Asperger Syndrome, was considered to be intellectually disabled as a child and lived with a misdiagnosis of schizophrenia for over 25 years. She overcame this to become a social worker and adult educator who now runs her own business. Wendy lives in Victoria, Australia, and is the author of Life Behind Glass and Understanding and Working with the Spectrum of Autism, both published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, plus numerous articles on autism spectrum conditions.


This book is easy to read and is packed with humorous illustrations, poetry and anecdotes, in the hope of giving the reader a clearer understanding of Asperger Syndrome. The best thing about the book is that it is not full of jargon or medical terminology. The book offers plenty of useful and practical advice, not only for people with AS but also people who may have interest in AS.--Autism West Midlands
This book is well designed for people with Asperger's Syndrome because it is not very long which is good for people like me who get anxious and impatient quite easily. I also lose track of what is being talked about in a piece of writing quite easily. Another reason why this book is suited for people with autism is that it uses several diagrams, and diagrams are an effective way to communicate with people with autism. I found this book helped me to increase my understanding of Asperger's Syndrome. I found this book quite interesting and would recommend this book to other people with Asperger's Syndrome.--Robert Drew, Son of Asperger Syndrome Support Network Worker
