This innovative work is a simply written Guide, avoiding jargon, to all areas of the Autism Spectrum including Asperger’s. It uncovers the history of these conditions and includes many famous examples of Autistic and Asperger achievers, people who have changed the way the world works and thinks, including Isaac Newton, Leonardo da Vinci, Van Gogh, Michelangelo, Temple Grandin and computer pioneers Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, among many. Where problem-solving or innovation, trend prediction or extreme creativity is required, there will be the Aspie…like Nobel Prize-winning economist, Dr Vernon Smith. It is full of anecdotes from the author’s professional and deeply personal experience as an Autistic “Aspie” himself. It is by turns enquiring, humourous, mysterious, eye-opening, dark and ultimately hopeful.
