Reviews - What do customers think about On My Own Terms: My Journey with Asperger's?

Climb Every Mountain  May 30, 2006
This book is a rare gem and a recently discovered treasure. In addition to being well written, one can identify with much of what the author has chosen to share. It provides a much needed window with parted curtains into autism/Asperger's (a/A) perceptions and interpretations.

This book has appendices and additional insights that are not included in this author's previous work, "Overcoming Asperger's." The text from the original book in its entirety is included in this one. The only difference between the books other than the titles is the inclusion of the appendices.

It has been said and evidence appears to support the finding that people on the a/A spectrum learn empathy cognitively as opposed to intuitively. Seeing the view from another person's perspective is challenging for most people, but for those on the a/A spectrum it is all the more so.

This book is one that commands respect; being able to disclose the level of information that is found in this book is nothing short of courageous. It is the voice of hope for those with any form of autism; for professionals and for those personally involved with people on the a/A spectrum. This is a book for everybody! Being able to share these insights and observations made me think of the song "Climb Every Mountain" from "The Sound of Music."

Hats off to this book!
