Book Description

Emotional awareness is not something that we are taught in school and it is rarely even understood by our parents. We live in a society where even those not in the Autistic Spectrum (Neuro-typical Individuals) suffer to some extent with emotional repression and its subsequent side effects.

It is not surprising that most with Asperger’s syndrome struggle to get the help, knowledge and understanding to deal with problems with anger, anxiety and depression.

Following the creation of the Asperger Test Site, we received a steady flow of questions from people seeking advice following their diagnosis. One of the things we noticed is that it was the emotional aspect of life that people were struggling with the most. Issues around anxiety, anger and depression are quite common for adults with Aspergers. There is a common misconception that people with Aspergers don't feel emotions, but that is simply not true. What is true is that there is difficulty understanding , communicating and dealing with the emotions that are present.

This book is intended to give you a better understanding of the emotions that affect those living with Asperger’s syndrome. In writing this book, we deemed first to identify what the problem areas are before looking for resolutions. While we could not cover every single emotion in this book, we have covered the ones that are most problematic.

We hope it will provide a powerful reference that you can use to improve the quality of your life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aspergers issues November 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book provided a good overview of the issues that those of us with Aspergers have to deal with. They did not go into great details but provided a good introduction to each issue and some practical was to compensate for them and make them less problematic for for the individual. Their coverage of Anger was good as well as anxiety and depression. In the area of anxiety I did not feel they addressed my type very well. But over all a good book for those just starting the process of understanding the person with Aspergers.

I'm glad I was able to download this book on a special $1.99 deal. Book is very short, but helpful. Spoken from the view of a person who has Asperger's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile read October 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great to read a book with a wholistic approach that encompasses a level of promoting self awareness and self help
As an Aspergers woman in my 50's, with 2 Aspie sons and married to an Aspie man, I haver read countless books over many years. I have rarely found one that addresses our challenges with a wholistic perspective. Short and sweet with no waffle!. Well done and thank you

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read Book November 11, 2012
By Wendi P
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well organised book, with information that is very relevant to any one living with Asperger's. I look forward to putting to use the information it contains. I have only recently (6 weeks ago) found out I have Asperger's, and this book helped me realise some issues I didn't even realise were issues for me! I especially like the self help aspects it suggests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the point November 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Long enough to be helpful but short enough not to lose the attention of my busy mind! A great read for anyone, even those who want to understand the nuances of Asperbergers and how people can work to free themselves from its grasp with simple techniques. A great help!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction April 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a good introduction to the Aspergers problem, primarily for people that, like me, just discovered to have it.
Anyway, after this introductory book you will need something more detailed.
