from the foreword by Tony Attwood, Clinical Psychologist and author of The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome
I consider that the partners of those who have Asperger's syndrome are quite remarkable people; this book is a tribute to their personal qualities and will contribute to a significant improvement in mutual understanding and enjoyment of the relationship.

When I first boarded the Asperger Express bound for a journey of self-discovery, I had nothing but my own experiences and Maxine Aston's books tucked under my arm. I read them, no, I swallowed them whole, sat back and began to rethink my entire life. Her books saved my life and for that I'll forever be grateful. Besides being a pioneer of Aspergers awareness, Aston is a wonderful writer. The Other Half of Asperger Syndrome (Autism Spectrum Disorder) is a clear, easy to understand page-turner as well as an eye-opener. Since this book was first written, she's worked with hundreds of individuals on the spectrum and stayed abreast of all the latest research which imbues and enriches this 2nd edition.

In a comprehensive sweep Maxine Aston manages to cover all the concepts people in AS-linked relationships need. Without shying away from tough topics, Aston gives immediately useful advice and research-based guidance. This is the type of book I like to have handy, flipping to a random page to read during tough times since every page of the book is helpful. Aston's upbeat tone and many insights give clarity to the unique issues facing couples as they improve their relationships.

I highly recommend this rare treasure! Couldn't put it down! Through numerous examples Aston clearly explains the differences between the Asperger and Non-Asperger partner. She encourages couples not to strive for the impossible but instead to try some of her invaluable insights and tips. A must-read!
