Dr Willey has a wonderful husband, three happy children, dedicated parents and an active social life. She also has Asperger Syndrome, just like her youngest daughter.

Start by marking Asperger Syndrome in the Family: Redefining Normal as Want to Read . While I read this book all the way through, and I found some elements of it interesting, Liane's books have a heavy emphasis on 'passing' and an air of neurological elitism that I don't really like.

She seems determined to distance Asperger Syndrome from autism, and therefore herself from autists that are unwilling or unable to pass, and that really isn't the way I feel about it.

Wonderfully articulated look at the world through the eyes of an adult with Aspergers, but also as a parent with children and family members "sprinkled" with Aspergers. The author gives us a very personal glimps at a family who strives and succeeds at living with the demands and eccentricities of living "on the spectrum". Good appendices with additional resources and words to live by.

This book gave me a perspective of how a mother with asperger's syndrome handles herself and raising 3 girls, one of which has asperger's syndrome also, and keeping her marriage healthy and happy. She is an incredible woman to have accomplished all of this and a successful career also. It give me hope for my son with asperger's.

I have read many books on Asperger's Syndrome, but this is the book that will really help you understand people with Asperger's. The author has a terrific perspective from both being an Aspie herself and having a child with Asperger's. It is written very clearly and addresses the issues of concern to parents. This is the #1 book on this topic that I would recommend to parents.

This author's voice is honest and refreshing, with the right amount of humor. I learned so much and highly recommend it.

This book has been very helpful with understanding my differences. I enjoyed reading about a fellow Aspie flying her freak flag.

Liane Holliday Willey has written an account of her family's life with Asperger's Syndrome that may make you laugh just as often as it brings a tear to your eye. With great sincerity and a special kind of bravery, Willey exposes herself and her family members with Asperger's in an exceptionally moving manner. Wiley has her doctorate in psycho-linguistics and is an well qualified and eloquent spokesperson for those on the autism spectrum. She is married and has three children.

The author worries about her young daughter with AS. "I think about my daughter and her future... I want things to be easier for her. I want the world to work harder when it meets people who are different." Yet she also recognizes the often overlooked strengths and positives of "aspies". "We can teach you to follow the right path instead of the wrong, for few have a moral code as stringent as ours." Willey's book unfolds as a series of reflections and not a biographical sketch. She talks about the ups and downs of aspie marriage, accentuating the positive side of obsessions, and the importance of balance, which can be difficult for the aspie to find and maintain.

Throughout the book, there are helpful bullet points and lists, such as "10 Traits Aspies Struggle With", which begins with number one, inflexible and rigid thinking, and goes on to number ten, language and communication which goes beyond a literal level. There's also the very useful topic, "Socializing the Aspie Way". Here she sets out some critical rules for positive social experiences, such as "keep party gatherings small", "set time limits for your socializing", and "prompt the aspie to rely on an innocuous calming stim when they get too nervous in public."

I highly recommend this book for anyone who wishes to better understand people with Asperger's or Asperger type traits. People with AS are different from the norm, but that doesn't always mean something negative. Once allowed to get close, no friend will ever be so loyal, and few others will have the same drive to learn about subjects of particular interest.
I have read her first book, "Pretending To Be Normal" and thought I was reading about myself. I have never been diagnosed with AS but have suspected that I have it for as long as I have known the condition existed.

This book is a combination of her family's story and advice from her perspective on marriage, child-rearing, and family living based on her experience as an "Aspie", in addition to being the parent of one and possibly the daughter of one as well. Much of the advice would apply to anyone. She does not discuss sexuality, since doing so would go places she might consider too personal to put in a book, but there are other books which address this.

She also mentions things that some people don't think about, like the suicide rate among autistic people (yes, it's much higher than average) and persuades people not to use drugs and alcohol as a substitute for a social life.

I especially appreciated her advice to not be ashamed of yourself or your "Aspie" relative, and on social skills development.

This book wouldn't be applicable to a lower-functioning person, but for someone who can, for instance, go to regular school, it's just right.
