This is a very loving examination of the challenges faced by couples, where one partner has Asperger's Syndrome & the other is Neuro-Typical. The author (who is NT, married to an Aspie) uses the DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for AS to describe how each Aspie trait might appear to the NT partner. She then gives helpful examples of how each partner can use the awareness of these traits to strengthen their relationship. As an Aspie, I found this book to be enlightening, by giving me some insight as to how a partner might perceive the personality characteristics and/or impairments of someone with AS.
