Relationships are never easy, but adding a partner with Asperger’s syndrome into the mix builds a new dimension to communication difficulties. Pike, founder and director of Different Together, a UK-based community for partners of adults with Asperger’s syndrome (AS), presents a groundbreaking title that features he said/she said paired narratives shining a light on relationship difficulties from both sides of the marriages. Each paired sharing covers a different topic—anxiety, change, finances, intimacy, and more—followed with question-and-answer commentary provided by clinical psychologist Atwood (The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome).
VERDICT Despite the academic-sounding title, this work is easy to read and understand. Essential for anyone who anticipates a career in social work or psychology, and highly recommended for those who love or work with those with AS.
