Recommended Books on Asperger Syndrome

Friday, April 03, 2009


With autism on the rise, more and more information is being written for those with autism – including Asperger Syndrome – and their loved ones. I have been doing a lot of reading on autism and have come across some excellent books on the subject.

Here are a few that I highly recommend picking up:

Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's
- John Elder Robison Intense, funny, inspiring autobiography of a young man coming of age with Asperger's Syndrome. You can't possibly understand what goes on in the mind of someone with Asperger's Syndrome, if you are neuro-typical. The normal rules do not apply. But Robison describes the inner workings of his mind in a way that shows the incredible structure of an "Aspergian" mind. This is an excellent book for anyone trying to love and understand a loved one with Asperger's Syndrome.

Songs of the Gorilla Nation: My Journey Through Autism
- Dawn Prince-Hughes A most beautiful and painful look at the struggle the author has lived with as she comes to terms with her Asperger's Syndrome. What is so important about this book is that it is a woman's story. So much is written by parents about raising a child with Asperger's Syndrome. More recently we have learned some about grown men with this developmental disorder. Time Magazine even referred to them as Geeks. But what about women with this disorder? Dawn Prince-Hughes paints a most inspiring story of her rebirth from a disturbed girl and teen into a woman who is a leader in her field, a supportive partner and a loving mother.

Pretending to Be Normal: Living With Asperger's Syndrome
- Liane Holliday Willey I love this title! Pretending to be normal is the exact description of the lives of many with Asperger's Syndrome. Pretending to be normal and never really being true to themselves. This book offers a better way to live one's life. Not just for those suffering from Asperger's Syndrome, this book helps their loved ones better understand the complexities of their Asperger's loved ones.
