Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/16/2014 -- 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.

The short, easy-to-read informative and quirky style is for everyone affected by, giving care to or someone with an ASD. It fills a critical void in the canon of Autism literature, providing Autistics, professionals and parents with best practice standards for screening, assessment, diagnosis and education, while revealing and de-mystifying fascinating information about medicine and health in general.

Beginning with the history of Autism, its insights, theories and conclusion are based on the latest research from many disciplines, backed up with famous examples of Autism throughout the ages. If you want to experience and understand the world through the eyes and ears of an autistic person; this is the book for you.
