My name is Erin Clemens. I'm 24 years old, and I want to help others understand what my life is like living with Asperger's Syndrome. My hope is that people can learn from what I have been through, and apply it to what may help someone they know on the spectrum. To me, autism isn't a death sentence. It's just a different lifestyle. The views expressed are my own.

Oh How I wish I had this book 18 years ago when our Garth was a baby. Through the years I read clinical books by 'experts', but no one told me how my grandson really felt. I marveled at his persistence to learn each new thing while overcoming so many obstacles. He is my hero. Such a kind noble spirit and handsome young man. I'm so proud of him and all he has done in his life. He has Aspergers. This book gives knowledge of how far he has come. It will aid in our future. I recommend everyone read it to become aware of a lifestyle that requires daily struggle in our society that is overwhelming to most of us and especially to those not equipped to cope with our noisy stressful way of life. Thanks to this brave author for baring her very soul to make us have AN UNDERSTANDING HEART. The wisest man, Solomon when told he could have anything he wanted, asked God for "An understanding Heart". ? May we all try for that golden trophy. A Grandmother
Thanks to the candid approach the author brings to the subject, I understand my middle son much better. He was not diagnosed but it was obvious that he was special. I WISH I had known but he was such a good student and social that his melt downs were seen as bad temper. At age three, he did tell us he had a "bujonic brain." Now he says he was trying to say atomic. He just knew he thought and felt differently.
