Product description

Review

In this honest and beautifully articulate book, Cynthia Kim reflects back on her life before and after her recent diagnosis, and she describes how her diagnosis helped her to gain a new understanding of herself and events in her past. The book is packed full of useful tips for others with Asperger's, and her own experiences with marriage and raising a child provide a valuable perspective which is both eye opening and a real pleasure to read. -- Elisabeth Hurley, PhD, Research Officer, Autism West Midlands, UK

I have been a fan of Cynthia Kim's blog,
Musings of an Aspie, for many years. This book has everything I've come to expect from her blog and more. Poignant and practical by turns, and always insightful, this book is a must read for anyone trying to get a better understanding of autism. -- Lynne Soraya, blogger for Psychology Today and author of Living Independently on the Autism Spectrum

Cynthia Kim unequivocally captures the true essence of what it means to be autistic! What it means to be me! She helps you understand yourself, which enables you to struggle less with yourself and life. There's no doubt about it that Aspies are complex. Kim addresses all facets of what makes us different head-on. From shutting down to contentment and peace, it's all covered in this eye-opening account of living with Asperger's. Insight and advice follow each section for a clear and concise plan to help in your everyday life. -- Anita Lesko, BSN,RN,MS,CRNA, internationally recognized Autism Advocate, author of Been There. Done That. Try This!, also published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers
