Présentation de l'éditeur

*Gold Medal Winner in the Sexuality / Relationships Category of the 2011 IPPY Awards*

Girls with Asperger's Syndrome are less frequently diagnosed than boys, and even once symptoms have been recognised, help is often not readily available. The image of coping well presented by AS females of any age can often mask difficulties, deficits, challenges, and loneliness.

This is a must-have handbook written by an Aspergirl for Aspergirls, young and old. Rudy Simone guides you through every aspect of both personal and professional life, from early recollections of blame, guilt, and savant skills, to friendships, romance and marriage. Employment, career, rituals and routines are also covered, along with depression, meltdowns and being misunderstood. Including the reflections of over thirty-five women diagnosed as on the spectrum, as well as some partners and parents, Rudy identifies recurring struggles and areas where Aspergirls need validation, information and advice. As they recount their stories, anecdotes, and wisdom, she highlights how differences between males and females on the spectrum are mostly a matter of perception, rejecting negative views of Aspergirls and empowering them to lead happy and fulfilled lives.

This book will be essential reading for females of any age diagnosed with AS, and those who think they might be on the spectrum. It will also be of interest to partners and loved ones of Aspergirls, and anybody interested either professionally or academically in Asperger's Syndrome.

Just found out I have Asperger's. I'm Anthony's wife, not Anthony. It seemed really great at first but, it was a tad boring after a while and never really talked about WHAT asperger's is from a medical perspective. Just kept saying autism spectrum. It did help my husband see where I get a few(actually many) of my quirks but he couldn't get to the end of it. Neither could I. It's written in very very Layman's terms. In actuality, it was just too simple for my husband and I. It could be really eye opening for a family member or someone who doesn't like the more medical terms used.

I think there could have been a more in-depth exploration of the ideas, especially in comparing women with Aspergers and men since that idea is implied by writing a book about women with Aspergers and given the seeming vacuum of resources on the topic.

It seemed to be somewhat biographical, but with relatively few specific instances that could add some concreteness to the information presented. Basically, I blew through the book a lot faster than I would have liked to because it was too much an overview. I guess some people are looking for that though so who knows.

I'm at about chapter 3 and wishing I bought a physical copy of this book instead of a digital one so I could dramatically tear it in two. So far we've had waxing lyrical about the cliches of the idiot savant, unscientific waffle about psychic powers and chi and the most trite advice imaginable.

Gosh, if you have trouble with social interactions and maybe one friend you might be a typical ASD woman, but according to this book you should just go out and make more friends because it's better for you. Sure, wave that magic wand.

The book pays lip service to the idea that there are many good and interesting qualities that someone with ASD might have, but the advice to girls is put all that aside and be as neuro typical as possible. Again using magic apparently because the book doesn't offer any advice how to accomplish these things.

The concept of gender roles being an artificial construct of society has not reached Rudy Simone yet. According to this book women are kinda icky because everything that defines femininity is of course inherent in NT women. ASD women are a little better than that amirite. Yet the advice to girls is again to conform to expectations.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a book about ASD in women that contains some actual facts?

Honestly, I couldn't make it through the book once I got to the point where she started talking about girls with Aspergers having more psychic ability. I was hoping this book would be more about learning to work with the way girls with Aspergers interact with and understand the world, but I can't stand that rubbish.

If you, your daughter, your best friend, or your partner have Asperger's, I promise that you will learn a lot from this book. It's user-friendly--not awash in psychobabble and excess verbiage. It explains things clearly, from the point of view of a woman who was diagnosed as an adult. Rudy Simone is something of a pioneer in the literature of ASD, in that she is one of the first to create a list of the FEMALE traits of Asperger's. Although she is not technically qualified to "diagnose" Asperger's, many, many women have identified themselves in the pages of this book, and have begun their own explorations after reading "Aspergirls." That, my friends, is HUGE (but the book, thankfully, is not!).
You won't regret reading it, and you may just want to pass it along to others.
