`This looks like a book that our social skills groups and some of our schools could use... Social skills are a big problem area for people with AS, so quality help is always needed' - Cathy Mercer, National Autistic Society

'Overall I think that this is a very useful book and you can read the sections as and when you need to' - Action for ASD

'[R]eaders who have already begun to grasp the basics of social interaction could learn a lot from this book' - Asperger United

'An excellent self 'help-text'... Not a word is wasted, and as well as being highly recommended for individuals with Asperger's Syndrome, should also be read by education professionals supporting young people with Asperger's Syndrome in schools, colleges and universities' - SENCO Update

The imposition of 'social skills' teaching is sometimes seen as stemming from a negative attitude to social difference. Participation in 'activities' might be resented by the AS community and the choice to learn and adopt neuro-typical behaviour should to be offered as an option and in a very respectful way.

This book is a self-help manual written by two AS adults who offer others the benefits of their experiences. It is suitable for private study by AS individuals and can also be used in FE and higher education establishments for support and personal development courses.

Genevieve Edmonds is a 23 year old with 'residual' Asperger's Syndrome, which she views as a significant gift. She works as an associate of the Missing Link Support Service in Lancashire supporting thoise 'disabled by society' including inviduals with ASD. She speaks and writes frequently in the field of Autism, along with giving training, workshops and soon counselling. She aims to empower those with ASD, carers and professionals in the understanding of Asperger's Syndrome as a difference rather than an impairment. She lives and works in a solution focussed way and is based in north-west England.

He runs a very successful UK-based website for adults with Aseprger's Syndrome and hosts real-life meet-ups around the UK for its members.
