520    'This book breaks down the social, emotional and practical
       aspects of relationships so usefully that it is a good 
       resource for teachers and others working with neurotypical
       individuals. In fact the book so sensibly discusses 
       pitfalls, strategies and individual responsibilities that 
       it would be valuable reading for teenagers generally as 
       well as for individuals with Asperger syndrome' - Tess 
       Coll, autism outreach teacher 'The Asperger Love Guide is 
       recommended reading for those with Asperger's syndrome who
       are seeking or within a relationship. The authors provide 
       a clear explanation of how the characteristics of 
       Asperger's syndrome can affect the development of a 
       relationship and the expression of love. They then provide
       sound practical advice for individuals and couples. I 
       really enjoyed reading The Asperger Love Guide and will be
       recommending the book to my clients' - Professor Tony 
       Attwood ̀This is the first book I've read in a long time 
       that, once started, I couldn't put down until it was 
       finished. It is an exceptionally good read. The 77 pages 
       are written succinctly with no waffle - just straight to 
       the point. I will definitely buy a copy of this book for 
       the whole family to use! I will use it to guide Joe (my 17
       year old Asperger son) when he's ready for it. It's not a 
       book he would read himself; in fact I read the section 
       "the merits of single life" out loud to him a bit like a 
       bed time story' - Action for ASD 'There is a great need 
       for more awareness of Asperger syndrome and how it affects
       personal relationships. The National Autistic Society find
       this a helpful guide' - Cathy Mercer, NAS 'This book sets 
       out some helpful facts about relationships in a neat, 
       simple form' - Asperger United 'An excellent self 'help-
       text'... the book is a clear and matter-of-fact guide to 
       relationships and is unapologetic in offering 
       straightforward and 
520 8  helpful advice for romantic success... 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 'Aimed primarily at individuals with 
       Asperger syndrome, this very readable book is in fact of 
       use to a much wider audience. The issues are discussed 
       openly and logically and the advice given is both 
       sympathetic and very matter of fact... The book breaks 
       down the social, emotional and practical aspects of 
       relationships so usefully that it is a good resource for 
       teachers and others working with neurotypical individuals.
       Infact the book so sensibly discusses pitfalls, strategies
       and individual responsibilities that it would be valuable 
       reading for teenagers generally as well as for individuals
       with Asperger syndrome' - British Journal of Special 
       Education Material based on the experiences of the people 
       on the Autistic Spectrum is usually written by 
       neurotypical writers. Here, Genevieve and Dean, both 
       adults with Asperger's Syndrome, share their advice and 
       tips for romantic success. The chapters cover: o building 
       self-esteem; o the best places to meet potential partners;
       o dating; o maintaining relationships. Both authors work 
       with the Asperger community, either providing support or 
       training, so their insight is based upon other people's 
       experiences as well as their own. This is shown in a 
       number of case studies that support the elements described
       in each chapter. They write in a clear, accessible and non
       -patronizing way which will suit their audience. This will
       prove to be an invaluable book to those with Asperger's or
       those that support Asperger people. Dean Worton is a 31 
       year-old high functioning individual with a very positive 
       expression of Asperger Syndrome 
520 8  He runs a successful UK-based website for adults with 
       Asperger Syndrome and hosts real-life meet-ups around the 
       UK for its members. His key interest is in encouraging 
       adults with AS to live positively and successfully with 
       the gifts that Asperger Syndrome provides. He also works 
       in adminstration and resides in North-West England. 
       Genevieve Edmonds is a 23 year old with 'residual' 
       Asperger Syndrome, which she views as a significant gift. 
       She works as an associate of the Missing Link Support 
       Service in Lancashire supporting those 'disabled by 
       society' including individuals 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 Syndrome as a difference rather 
       than an impairment. She lives and works in a solution-
       focused way and is based in North-West England
