    I have 2 daughters with Aspergers Syndrome and have read many, many books to educate myself.This book is at the top of my best books as it confirms my thoughts that our children can lead successful lives.At times I laughed as I recognized my girls actions and thought processes, at times I wanted to cry as again I saw my girls experiences with normal children.All in all I am happy to have my girls, they are caring, loving girls even though the world often sees them when they are under stress and behaving weird I recommend this book to anyone who wants to see the world through someone with Aspergers Syndrome.Bearing in mind all children with aspergers are individuals and are completley unique there is alot to be learnt from Be Different

    An excellent book with great insights into life on the spectrum I bought the book for my almost 18 year old son and am reading it myself before I give it to him I am sure he s going to identify with much of the contents of it I would absolutely recommend it to any parent with a child on the spectrum or indeed any agency which provides care or intervention for those on the spectrum.

    Being myself an Aspie, I must say that John s book affected me deeply On the one hand, I am touched by the Aspie typical phenomena he describes in a rarely seen perspicuity, on the other hand he challenges me by stipulating a tough self disciplinary program for adapting to the society with its norms What I am missing is the point of the permanent stress Aspies are exposed to in everyday life The title of John s book is somewhat misleading by all his statements that Aspies are definitely different, he recommends to adapt to the world of the so called Nypicals I am not convinced that this may be a good way for reducing Aspies stress level Aspies have a deep desire to be congruent with their nature.

    Be Different is the second book by American author and Aspergian, John Elder Robison When his memoir, Look Me In The Eye My life With Asperger s became a publishing success, no one was surprised than Robison himself When it began to be adopted by certain schools, Robison was asked for a book with insight into the condition, and Be Different is the result In this book, Robison looks at the quirks of the Aspergian brain that can lead to disability or expertise, depending on how they are handled While this may sound like a dry topic, Robison illustrates with captivating and often humorous examples from his own life, making this an easy and exceptionally interesting read With intriguing chapter headings like Underwear With Teeth and Lobster Claws Dealing with Bullies, Robison has all sorts of tips and tricks for Aspergians and those who deal with them Robison s rules for manners would serve everyone well, regardless of their neurological state This is a fascinating look at a neurological condition that has the power to create a misfit but also an expert.
