To me, it's all about helping the child learn to be comfortable in his or her own skin and learn to better self-advocate as they grow older. Of course, it's ALSO about educating people who stubbornly resist understanding neurobiologically-based behaviours, such as under-educated school district personnel, in-denial teachers, or crabby relatives who confuse disability-related behaviour with willful MISbehaviour. :-)
When I finally got it, I was puzzled by some of the criticisms leveled at the book. I didn't find the introduction to be melodramatic; in fact, it struck me as being as matter-of-fact as an AS kid might be in the face of the situation (he has behaved extremely inappropriately at a dinner honoring his father). As for the mom crying, I would have cried in that situation, too (and I don't know another mother who has a kid with AS who hasn't cried over her child's behavior at some point).
As for the comments that this book presents a single view of AS: it's written in *first person*. Of course it only presents one view of the diagnosis! Going through the book with your child and pointing out the ways in which he/she is both similar to and different from the narrator is a great way to practice understanding similarities and differences among people in general.
I recommend this book highly. Also, I'd like to mention that it arrived much more quickly than I expected; I got it in about a week.
My boy did, however, very much enjoy the picture-book "All Cats have Asperger's." The language in that book is equally simplistic, but he was taken in by the comparisons to cats, which he loves.
