Reviews

"There has never been another book like Everyday Aspergers. In prose that is alternatingly playful, witty, brave, heartbreaking, and encouraging, Samantha Craft explores her experience of life on the spectrum in meticulous and comprehensive detail."--Steve Silberman author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity

"The information is current and prolific. Her self-reflection, intelligence, humor, and faith are refreshing. This is one book that I'll be recommending in my 'what next' sections with my clients. Everyday Aspergers will no doubt serve as a helpful resource to many."--Tania Marshall, MS psychologist and gold-winning author of I Am AspienWoman and I Am AspienGirl

"The humor and light touch is disarming, because underneath light observations and quirky moments are buried deep truths about the human experience and about her own work as an autistic woman discerning how to live her best life."--Ned Hayes author of The Eagle Tree

"'The Encyclopedia of Aspergers'--written by someone who lives it every day. Funny, honest, touching, and real, Everyday Aspergers is a book that can be turned to again and again--for reference, support, and for reassurance. I recommend it highly."--Rachael Lucas author of Sealed with a Kiss and Wildflower Bay

Dip in and out or read right through, you will find something that resonates with you as being autistic is being human."--Emma Goodall, PhD author of Understanding and Facilitating the Achievement of Autistic Potential and The Autism Spectrum Guide to Sexuality and Relationships and coauthor of The Guide to Good Mental Health on the Autism Spectrum

If you are on the autism spectrum yourself, or know, love, or care for someone who is, I strongly recommend this book."--Jeanette Purkis autistic advocate, artist, and author of Finding a Different Kind of Normal and The Wonderful World of Work and coauthor of The Guide to Good Mental Health on the Autism Spectrum

Aspie Show
