Excellent book for couples dealing with Asperger's syndrome. I didn't really know very much about this diagnosis, and so found the information very interesting. The book gives much practical advice for both the partner with Asperger's and also the partner who is "neurotypical". One of the most pervasive symptoms of this disorder is an often misunderstood aloofness, and I imagine just accepting that your partner is hard wired very differently from the norm, would help to take the sting out of perceived neglect, one of the most common problems in an Asperger's relationship.
But above and beyond that, this book offers sound relationship advice for anyone, honest, forthright communication, negotiation of space and togetherness, and continuing to have a life of your own, while maintaining a healthy partnership.
