I've had the pleasure of corresponding with Liane Holliday Willey. She does not speak in a poetic fashion, but deals with reality as I should be. Until recently, there were very few books out there that focused on the needs of a female with Asperger's. They are out there in greater numbers than scientific statistic imply and they need someone that understands what they are going through and what it means to be a woman for Asperger's. As a teacher with Asperger's that teaches students on the ASD Spectrum I wanted a book out there that deals with the dangers, pitfalls and obstacles my female students will face during their transition to adulthood and as an adult. Who is better to speak about these issues than a woman that lives with Asperger's and has succeeded wonderfully. She deals with the dangers all women face, but are even more pronounced for women on the spectrum. Liane gives them a map with which will help them not to fall into such situations. Beyond that what is more profound she paves a road with will create a path that will help them emerge as more confident and self-sufficient adults. Willey deals with everything from relationships, travel, the work environment, dealing with difficult situations to learn how to figure out the world around them. Through her own experiences and world view she created a tour de force that will be a very relevant book for every Aspie woman to have on her bookshelf or e-reader as she is about to depart on the road to adulthood. She is a true mentor to a group in the need of a messenger who has been there and done that. Very relevant and timely. Kudos to you.

This book was great an all but the incorrigible millennial in me is still disappointed that I didn't really walk away with a "list" of safety skills in my head. i would still purchase this because it is so invaluable but just know it isn't like a BuzzFeed list

This book was one of a number of books I purchased to familiarize myself with Asperger's Syndrome.
I was looking for information, characteristics to look for and ways of dealing with a person who is on the spectrum with this neurological "disorder". I learned a lot from this book and found it extremely helpful and hopeful.

My main issue with this book is that the writer sneaks in remarks such as "I don't like change. Find me an Aspie who does." This is too generalizing and considering the fact that this book contains mostly personal experiences and anecdotes, I feel the writer should withhold from making such statements. It is not helping.

After reading this book, I was so dissatisfied that I read the book description once again. Where my expectations so wrong? I'm still not sure what I had expected, but not this. Concerning practical and helpful ways for living with ASD, I would like to learn more about the reasons why you sometimes need to do things differently. I feel it is important because often you need to be able to explain at least to those close to you what is going on. You might recognize a lot of behaviors or thinking patterns in this book. So it might be reassuring to finally be able to relate to the experiences in this book, but for more guidance, look elsewhere.

I purchased this book to assist my young adult daughter with her adjustment to recent diagnosis of Aspergers. She was amazed to find that 'someone else really got it' about her concerns and could also offer constructive advice and recommendations. This book provided excellent support for us all to address important topics without causing unnecessary awkwardness.

Best writer about autism. She explains everything so well and helps me empathize even more with what my daughter goes through. This book is so good that I actually reread it a couple years after the first time.
