Praise for Getting a Life with Asperger's

“Jesse Saperstein’s straightforward, frank advice on the methods he used to make a successful transition to adulthood make this book essential reading for individuals with Asperger’s or high-functioning Autism.” --Temple Grandin, Ph.D., author of The Autistic Brain

Praise for Atypical

"Brilliant, creative writing."
-Temple Grandin, Ph.D., author of Thinking in Pictures

"With a voice as keen and honest as any I've ever had the pleasure of reading, Jesse Saperstein cracks open the underbelly of life with Asperger's, mesmerizing readers with a tale that is as fabulously incorrigible as it is strikingly compelling. Jesse Saperstein is the son I always wanted!"
-Liane Holliday Willey, author of Pretending to be Normal: Living with Asperger's Syndrome

"This funny, poignant, and honest book provides further evidence that Asperger's Syndrome is no cookie-cutter diagnosis. Atypical also informs us that Jesse Saperstein is a wonderful addition to the world of Asperger literature."
-Michael John Carley, executive director of The Global and Regional Asperger Syndrome Partnership (GRASP) and author of Asperger's From the Inside Out

"Amusing, surprising, and informative. Just when I thought I had learned all I can from personal accounts, I had the chance to read this one!"
-Jerry Newport, author of Mozart and the Whale, with Mary Newport and Johnny Dodd

"Jesse Saperstein's wise and compelling memoir lets us know how frustrating and strange life can be for a bright, resourceful young man with Asperger's navigating the typical world. Funny, irreverent, and ultimately forgiving of all the damage we 'well-adjusted' typicals wreak on those who are a little different from us."
-Sigourney Weaver, actress

"Jesse Saperstein is witty, insightful, and smart. He is also caring, social, emotional, empathetic, and able to learn from his mistakes and other people's rudeness-all traits we are often told that people with Asperger's don't have. I highly recommend this book to parents, educators, community members-frankly, to everyone. Jesse, I want to know what happens next; I hope you are working on a sequel!"
-Chantal Sicile-Kira, author of Autism Spectrum Disorders and Autism Life Skills

Présentation de l'éditeur

Hard-won insights on transitioning into adulthood

Author, speaker, and autism advocate Jesse A. Saperstein knows a lot about living with Asperger’s. Diagnosed at the age of 14, Jesse has struggled, triumphed, flubbed, soared, educated, and inspired. Along the road to adulthood, he has learned many lessons the hard way. In this honest and engaging book, he offers a guided tour of what he’s learned about getting along with others, managing emotions, succeeding in school and work, building relationships, and more. Among his Asperger’s Rules are:

Clean Up Your Own Mess (including but not limited to credit card debt, out-of-control collections, and your cesspool of a room)

You Can’t Bail Out the Titanic with a Wine Glass (or change the world of online dating)

Serving as a Role Model to the Next Generation of Asperger's Syndrome

Navigating the challenges of college and the unrelenting storm of transition.

The Road to Catastrophe is Paved with Good Intentions (understanding how others perceive you, even if they’re wrong)

WIN (Work Is Necessary) You are talented enough to maintain employment even if your options are not ideal

Confronting Memories of Bullying and Showing Mercy toward Yourself

Heartfelt, insightful, and generous, this book will enlighten and inform readers, whether they are on the autism spectrum or not.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read for those wanting to learn more about transitioning to adulthood with autism!!! 5 août 2014
Par Kerry Magro - Publié sur
Jesse's book, "Getting a Life with Asperger's: Lessons Learned on the Bumpy Road to Adulthood" provides a truly amazing insight into the life of one of the leading voices we have in the autism community today. When Jesse sent me an advance copy of his book I was ecstatic to give it a read. Jesse provides practical advice which can help many in our community. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of Jesse's books he authors in the future.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Jesse's "Been There, Done That, Continues to Do It" 8 août 2014
Par Evan Miller - Publié sur
Finally…the Asperger's community has its very own spokesperson. In "Getting a Life with Asperger's: Lessons Learned on the Bumpy Road to Adulthood," Jesse Saperstein provides a trail of bread crumbs that guides Asperger's young adults through a dense forest of transitions toward adulthood. This "How To" guide, provides practical, straight forward advice and delivers it with humor, compassion
and understanding. Like a trusted friend, he reveals the struggles he himself has experienced making the leap to adulthood and makes
it better for his compadres.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Read For Everyone! 10 août 2014
Par Kristen Clark - Publié sur
As soon as I cracked open this book, I could not put it down until I finished. This book is a must-read for everyone...people with Asperger's syndrome, those who know and love people with Asperger's Syndrome, and neurotypicals with no known connection to people with Asperger's will all find a bit of themselves within the pages. This is a brilliantly written self-help book written by "The Asperger's Catcher In The Rye", and it is certainly going to help individuals with Asperger's Syndrome to help find their way in the world...but its life lessons will extend to anyone who takes the time to read it. Reading this book helped me to realize that I have my own comfort-based addiction to watching TV...and now I'm consciously limiting the amount of time I allow myself to keep my TV on during a day off. So far, I am outside more, interacting with friends more (in real life--not on Facebook), back on an exercise regime and eating fewer snacks. Sometimes you don't even realize you need a little help...this book gave me the help I didn't even realize I needed, and I'm sure that it will do the same for you!

I finished Jesse's book in one sitting this morning! I found this book is not only for young adults with Asperger Syndrome. The things Jesse wrote about are for everyone ! I found myself in some of his chapters. My grandson is 19 yrs old and is an "Aspie" and he met Jesse at the Hudson Valley Autism Walk in Rhinebeck NY. Jesse autographed it for my Joshua. Inspirational, humorous, easy reading for EVERYONE !! Muchas Gracias Jesse ! Looking forward to your next book ! (Helga)
