Had some good information, but most of the information was about employment in general. I'd say only about 10% of the book is actually geared at gainful employment for adults with autism, but ending each chapter with a paragraph about how the information in the chapter applies to autism.

And frankly, it's a lot of "no crap" information, like networking. Yes, of course, networking will help anyone and everyone gain employment...

I should have bought this book instead of checking it out from the library. I took pages of notes. The authors talk about current job trends, and then specifically apply them to autism job seekers. As a parent of a young adult on the spectrum, I feel better prepared for what he/we are facing. It is not all rosy with tidy recommendations, but I am more clear-eyed and focused in my thinking. A lot of out of the box ideas are presented. As a parent, I thought the book was great. I think my son woul ...more

This book provided a good overview about the difficulties that people with autism encounter when finding and maintaining employment. Currently, I am a job developer for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and hoped to discover new strategies to help me find employment for my people. It was a solid read, but it didn't give me any strategies that were different from what I've already tried. ...more

I agree with a lot of the other reviewers that the book had a lot of information (most of it general and superfluous to the topic at hand, until the smaller 'conclusion' sections at the end of the section tying it back in). I'm not so sure this book is for neurodiverse individuals as it is for their networks, or business leaders approaching the topic of how to integrate neurodiverse and specifically autistic people into their workforce.

Tries to cover everyone who falls under the autism umbrella in a book that is short on substance. There are good ideas that help get one's mind working, but there aren't many breakthroughs. Reads more like a progress report for the job organizations mentioned in the book. ...more

Dry as a bone, and really pertaining more to employment in general with a sprinkling of autism anecdotes. But maybe interesting for someone with less knowledge of the topic.
