A truly marvelous book filled with practical help and solutions. This will be of great value to individuals with Asperger's and their family members! -- Fred R. Volkmar, M.D., Irving B. Harris Professor, Director of Child Study Center at Yale University School of Medicine, Chief of Child Psychiatry at Yale New Haven Hospital, and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders Clear, concise, well-structured, and an easy read, Been There. Done That. Try This! is an accessible compendium of wisdom from Aspie forebears and the dedicated bridgekeepers who have empowered them. Non-preachy, warm, often funny, the host of positive role models offer up a vast range of healthy choices for a new generation. This collection addresses all the major issues facing Aspies today and is the long-awaited instruction manual gifting future generations of Aspies with the ideas, strategies, and understanding that will empower them in their own diverse journeys. -- Donna Williams, author, artist, autism consultant, and public speaker The voices speaking in Been There. Done That. Try This! are the salve to heal the wounds of the aching soul, ending isolation while shining the light of introspective understanding to people with autism, by people with autism. It's lovely to see our voices as the experts while others who care so greatly for us serve the authors in a consultative role - as it should be. -- Dena L. Gassner, MSW, Program Director of Center for Understanding, Board Member of GRASP, and Advisory Board Member of Autism Society of America Under the auspices of the venerable Asperger's expert Dr. Tony Attwood, leading self-advocate Anita Lesko, and "community organizer" Craig Evans comes a full chorus of voices from the autism spectrum: young, old, male, female, and global. Together, these self-advocates offer perspectives, life stories, and advice for not only living, but thriving in an often inhospitable world. Been There. Done That. Try This! addresses every major stressor in the life of a young adult with Asperger's, from the personal to the interpersonal, from schools to offices, from trying to "pass" to disclosing a diagnosis. Each issue has its essayists' anecdotal advice matched with Dr. Attwood's professional insight, rounding out a comprehensive approach to meeting and defeating the challenges we face. -- Daniel Heinlein, Host of I Am Autistic, The Autism Channel Resonating profoundly with my own difficulties, the Aspie mentors within this book validate our challenges from their personal experiences. By giving positive practical advice, the Aspie mentors better equip us for many aspects of our everyday living. This is an outstanding guide that every Aspie should own! -- Barb Cook, Editor-in-Chief of Autism Aspergers Network Magazine and co-founder of Australian Autism Aspergers Network Inc. The title of this book is appealing in that it suggests that it will contain many practical strategies for those with an interest in Asperger syndrome (Aspies) or those termed high functioning autism... Each of the 17 chapters deals with an issue ranked as one of the 17th most common for those with autism or Asperger syndrome. The topics range from anxiety, self-esteem, managing change, meltdowns, depression, sensory issues, friendship, intimate relationships, to employment and diagnostic issues and disclosure... The book is full of practical ideas and activities. -- Dr Glenys Jones, Chartered Psychologist Good Autism Practice (GAP) I was impressed by the range and depth of the material making this a great resource for clinicians, as well as for adults with ASD and their friends, partners and relatives... The contributors are a brilliant, insightful group of people who provide rich, unique ideas on how to navigate the tricky waters of life, despite having a highly complex, little-understood neurological condition. I was blown away by this book and just couldn't put it down! Every adult with what used to be called Asperger Syndrome of High-Functioning Autism (AS/HFA) should include this on their reading list! Horizons - Autism Society of Michigan Quarterly Newsletter

A must have for any Aspie 17. Juli 2014
Von Andy Shuping - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
ARC provided by NetGalley

One of the most difficult aspects of being diagnosed with Asperger’s latter in life isn’t learning about yourself, but learning ways to deal with the world around you as an adult, since much of the literature and support is for children. That situation though is slowly changing thanks in large part to people like Dr. Tony Attwood and Temple Grandin, who have stepped up, spoken out, and shared their stories and advice to help people. This book adds yet another step, adults that have aspergers, have thrived and survived, and have been serving as mentors to many others share their words of wisdom on how to survive daily life and the stresses within it, all from the perspective of an Aspie. While sometimes the stories drag a little bit, the advice that these Aspie mentors offer on anxiety, depression, friendship, love, and more is invaluable to someone like me that was only diagnosed as being on the spectrum last year. This book is must have for anyone on the spectrum. 4 out of 5 stars.

If you know an Aspie....... 26. Mai 2014
Von J. J. Rosenfeld - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
While some of the individual stories drag a bit, the reason for the book is to help develop tools for dealing with the stresses of daily life. There the book succeeds remarkably. The techniques for coping are ones that someone with Asperger's will eventually figure out on their own, or with a therapist's help, this book will make the trail towards being able to cope and 'fit in' much easier for anyone who can get past the stories and to the suggestions.

AAA+++ for this book.

Very good for adult Aspies, must read. 17. Februar 2015
Von Jmeijlaers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Disclaimer, I am an Aspie, and I am almost 54 y/o. I'm not quite sure if that makes me an adult.
Also, English not my 1st language so if it rambles a bit...

This is a VERY good book for EVERY ole fart like me who later in life finds out he's "blessed" with High Functioning Autism/Aspergers.
Blessed is the right word but it's sometimes a bit hard to see if, like for me, this blessing came under a very heavy disguise.

This book is a collection of testimonials by Aspies who got it more or less right with some/many of the aspects of life that that have been buggering you/me/us. I had my successes, I could write a testimonial about these my-selves and have it published. I rather not publish all the things I got wrong in my life, I'm sure we all have our own stories, cried some buckets of tears, and are all looking forward to get it righter this time.

Why do I think this is a good book?

It is an organised book. You can read it front to back to get an overall idea, but you can just as well pick a topic from the table of contents and jump right to it and read only about that specific thingy you want to understand and tackle right now in quite a direct way, without having to wade trough a mountain of also interesting but not relevant now stuff. I recommend you first read the book, then dig out specific topics to work on.

It's written by Aspies, lots of them. We Aspies are all different. So there is never a single story that matches our problem just our way. While most of this book also is NotMyProblemNotMyWay, there is in every chapter (read ProblemSubset) at least one testimonial that fits me and is therefore helpful. Often there is more then one.

It's a mixture of cheer and solutions. Every author describes that s/he managed to overcome, and so can you. My No 2. problem often is "why bother". My No. 1 problem then becomes to find an answer to that question. Reading lots of stories from lots of people who found lots of solutions where many of the solutions are kinda easy for me to apply even now goes a long way to cheer me up & on. Without the courage and the energy to soldier on, solutions become somewhat useless therefore 3 cheers for cheering us on.

Every chapter ends with a summary by Tony Attwood. If you NEED to know all there is to know about Aspergers, go and read The Complete Guide to Aspergers Syndrome. It's complete. It's also quite a hefty read, too hefty if you need to know a specific bit in a hurry. It also more geared toward childhood. Been There Done That is a bit like Tony Attwood, the executive summary. Readable, to the point, exact, sufficient.

This all being written, Your Mileage May Vary

3 Cheers for Me, Myself & I
And for every other AspieGuy
3 Cheers for We, Us & All
And for Every other AspieGal

Great advice from people who have lived it 25. Juni 2015
Von Dreampet - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love this book. It is helpful without being condescending, it addresses real issues that people with ASD face everyday like anxiety, making friends, building or maintaining intimate relationships, dealing with sensory overload, and others. It may help someone who doesn't know a lot about ASD to get a better understanding of what an autistic or Aspie person experiences, but it's really more for ASD people who haven't quite figured out how to navigate some of our unique difficulties. There were things in here that I didn't realize I was struggling with until I read others' experiences and realized they were exactly like mine.
The personal writings of people who have been there lends a feeling of authenticity and honesty to this book, and the suggestions by Dr. Attwood at the end of each chapter make this book feel professional.
