Rarely do I laugh out loud reading non-fiction but I did here with Kim's book. A mix of telling stories of her own life while working in some of the science of the brain and some how-to tips and tricks for aspies and the ones who love them, this was a great read overall. ( )

Cynthia Kim shares all the quirkyness of living with Asperger Syndrome (ASD) in this accessible, witty and honest guide. From being labelled nerdy and shy as an undiagnosed child to redefining herself when diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome as an adult, she describes how her perspective shifted to understanding a previously largely incomprehensible world and combines this with extensive research to explore the 'why' of ASD traits. She explains how they impact on everything from self-care to holding down a job and offers typically practical and creative strategies to help manage them including a section on the benefits of martial arts for people with ASD.
