This book certainly is more comprehensible than An Asperger Dictionary of Everyday Expressions(2nd Edition), although the latter contains more information than the former. Especially for Aspies or Non-native speakers of English, I would like to recommend the former to strengthen your vocabulary building more efficiently! I feel it might be hard to image the meanings of idioms written on the latter, because it seems to lack specific information. Therefore, I would like to ask you to start with this book.
After all, this dictionary is the real reinforcement of smoother communications in your daily life! You should keep in mind that overuse of the idioms and metaphors is likely to confuse listeners or readers, though.
I'm still looking for some Autistic kids, though.
In the meantime, my students are digging it, since they're learning English and endlessly confused by our language.
