An Aspie's Guide to Life on Earth (2014) edited by Tony Attwood, Craig R. Evans & Anita Lesko
If you only buy one book to improve your life this year, make it this one.
Temple Grandin, Liane Holliday Willey, Anita Lesko, Stephen M. Shore, Jennifer Cook O'Toole, Lars Perner and many other Aspie mentors, offer their personal guidance on coping with the daily stressors that Aspies have identified as being the most significant, in order of urgency - anxiety, self-esteem, change, meltdowns, depression, friendship, love, and much, much more. Based on years of personal experience, this book is packed with advice from Aspie mentors who have all been there and done that!
World expert Dr. Tony Attwood rounds up each chapter with professional analysis and extensive recommendations. He includes essential information on destructive strategies that may look attractive, but that have counter-productive effects.
Including full color artwork from Aspie artists showing visually how they interpret each stressor, this is THE inspirational guide to life for young adults, the newly diagnosed, and as a life-long reference for anyone on the spectrum - written by Aspies for Aspies.
"Been There. Done That, Try This! . . . is the long-awaited instruction manual gifting future generations of Aspies with the ideas, strategies, and understanding that will empower them in their own diverse journeys." - Donna Williams, author, artist, autism consultant, and public speaker
