Build Your Own Life: A Self-Help Guide for Individuals With Asperger’s Syndrome by Wendy Lawson.
(XAT Lawso 1998)
The author, who has Asperger’s Syndrome herself, guides others on the autism spectrum through the confusing map of life, tackling the building bricks of social existence one by one. With insight and practical suggestions she looks at issues such as the concept of ‘self’ and ‘other,’ the difficulty of ‘putting on a face’ and how to deal with unwelcome changes, helping all those on the higher-functioning end of the autism spectrum, and those close to them, to get the best out of a world that is often perplexing.
