Editorial Reviews

Review

'I have worked with couples where one is affected by Asperger syndrome for over ten years; reading this book was like being an observer of a world I am very familiar with. Any woman who has loved a man with Asperger syndrome will relate to this book and find her own experiences totally validated. This book offers hope and encouragement to both partners in an Asperger relationship; it is realistic, unbiased and heart-warming. I recommend this book to all who wish to develop an understanding of the effect that both having and living with Asperger syndrome can have upon a relationship.' --Maxine Aston, author of Aspergers in Love and The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome

'A personal insight into a relationship where one partner has AS, but this was only slowly discovered and understood.' -----CAS (Current Awareness Service)

'Asperger Syndrome: A Love Story was written to provide both insight into the thinking of each partner in an unconventional relationship, and constructive strategies to lead to a more satisfying relationship for both parties... The reader very quickly appreciates the difficulties faced by Sarah and Keith and their biography of their relationship is engaging, informative and encouraging.' -----From the Foreword by Tony Attwood, author of The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome and Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals

Format: Paperback
This helped me so much. I am 31 and in a relationship with a man with Aspergers. It is a really simple read with perspectives from each partner on various aspects of the relationship. It helped my understanding greatly and has already improved my relationship! 5 Stars.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book. It's funny and charming and honest. I love the bluntness that Kevin exhibits (even if we're just going to attribute it to AS.) For example:

S: Darling, why won't you marry me?
K: Because you might have an aberration and I might want
to get rid of you. If we were married I would have to give
you half my stuff, and I wouldn't want to do that.

Ha ha ha! Awesome.

I started into "Asperger Syndrome: A Love Story" with the high hopes that it would be a funny, engrossing, and at times sad look at the relationship between a man with Asperger's and a woman. I realize that this is a memoir of sorts, and memoirs by their very nature are somewhat self-indulgent, but I felt more like I was reading someone's Facebook profile than the story of their relationship. I'm sure the people who wrote this are very nice individuals who mean well, but this book falls completely flat. Maybe I shouldn't have read "The Journal of Best Practices" before this book so that my expectations would not have been so high.

Having a boyfriend with Asperger's was one of the toughest relationships I've ever had. He was aloof, incredibly selfish and other things I don't need to dwell on. Needless to say, it is emotionally difficult for the non-aspie partner to cope with these things and if you're really head over heels for them you owe it to yourself to read this. The couple's story is amazing in the big and little things that they endured in their relationship. It takes a lot of understanding and acceptance and reading their story might lend to some of that rubbing off on you.
