It is a relatively new diagnosis in the field of autism. It was named in honor of Hans Asperger (1906–80), who was an Austrian psychiatrist and pediatrician. An English psychiatrist, Lorna. An English psychiatrist, Lorna Wing, popularized the term "Asperger's syndrome" in a 1981 publication; the first book in English on Asperger syndrome was written by Uta Frith in 1991 and the condition was subsequently recognized in formal diagnostic manuals later in the 1990s.

Usually diagnosed in childhood, Asperger syndrome is a lifelong social disorder characterized by a lack of empathy, little ability to form friendships, one-sided conversations, clumsy movements, and intense absorption in special interests. While Asperger syndrome has received increasing attention from researchers, clinicians, educators, and parents in recent years, numerous central questions about the disorder remain unanswered. This groundbreaking volume brings together preeminent scholars and practitioners to offer a definitive statement of what is currently known about Asperger syndrome and to highlight promising leads in research and clinical practice. Diagnostic and conceptual issues are explored in depth, and the disorder's assessment, treatment, and neurobiology are thoroughly reviewed. The book examines the effects of Asperger syndrome on an individual's social, communication, and behavioral development, and identifies the challenges that individuals with AS face at home, in school and the workplace, and in other settings. The volume concludes with several parent essays that exemplify the trials and tribulations--as well as the joys and the victories--of life with a child with Asperger syndrome.
The collection of papers in this volume are really top class. All the academic authors (there are a few snippets from parents) are very well published. The erudition shows in the breadth and depth of coverage. In such a rapidly hanginf field this is as near as you can come to frozen slice of current thinking. Unlike many anthologies, wherein authors expound on a particular niche obsession, the bulk of articles here offer broad overviews of work. The diagnosis and symptomatology debate is well presented in a series of papers opening the book. Leaving aside the technical academic ares, most paretns will find teh sections on langauge and interventions informative but downheartening. What come across is that adoelscents AS are so heterogenous as a group that even assessing theor conversational deficits is several dozen research projects in itself. The one area of the book that I personally was a little weak on recommendations related to interventions. The emphasis here was on methodological concerns and in fact often meta-methodological concerns. It is eqaully clear that many researchers regard the possibility of remission of AS has highly improbable - to be polite about it. Be that as it may, I reflected to myself a number of times during the course of reading the book (and being part of team looking into interventions), that if a fraction of the effort expended was applied to intervention research would be make better strides? It's a moot point, but if we lose hope we better close down science.
Great information. Helps to better understand family members with the syndrome. Some may even recognize themselves and get a better understanding of things. It is a college level book so be advised.
This is a very in depth review of the peer reviewed literature on Asperger's Syndrome. As it was written quite some time ago, it's not the most up to date. Despite that, it is very helpful in getting a basic review of important literature on the subject. Readers may find it frustrating that a large majority of the topics discussed end with something like "it cannot yet be determined if x issue occurs reliably in Asperger's Syndrome". This is because there is considerable debate about whether Aspergers is really a separate diagnostic entity from Autism. In the upcoming edition of the DSM it will likely be subsumed under a general diagnosis of "Autism Spectrum Disorders". Recommend for professionals and students. Parents who want really in depth information may also find this helpful.
Excellent text, well written, would be of more interest to the professional than the parents of those afflicted.This is a serious book.
This books is more of a research overview than anthing else, with a variety of papers written from several perspectives. A particular disappointment to me was that, rather than getting essays from the many talented Aspies out there, they got some from their parents to close the book out. It is probably more useful to psychiatrists, Occupational Therapists, and the specialist working on a Ph.D. in Special Ed than any parent or newly diagnosed Aspie.

If you are a parent, and interested in getting into your child's mind, I would suggest reading Liane Holliday Wilson (Aspergers) or Temple Grandin (HFA) or Steven Shore (Aspergers). Szatmari's book is also decent, but is more of a professional's attempts to get into our heads, rather than truly being a first hand account.

There is also a great deal of information, both academic and first-hand accounts, by people on the internet. Viewer beware, however. There is a great amount of nonsense about chelation treatments and other such things that have never been scientifically proven to improve your child's behavior or social skills.

For the latter, I suggest a book called "Incorporating Social Skills in the Classroom", and also a book on NLD whose name I can't currently remember but that you can find in my recently reviewed list.
This information is a bit outdated. Evidence is emerging that females may indeed have AS as frequently as males, but it goes undetected due to females' early-learned coping skills. To get a more living, breathing idea of AS, I recommend a book about females with AS -- most notably Tony Attwood and Rudy Simone (Aspergirls).

This style writing sucks the life out of the people he's discussing, and lays them out on a petrie dish for poking and prodding. Not helpful for people who would give anything to be seen as people rather than a pathology.

Actually, that's four stars with a strong qualifier -- this is a fairly dense book for most laypeople. A collection of medical journal articles with some parent essays tacked on at the end, and intended for parents of A.S. kids rather than A.S. adults (although it does have some material for them, too), this unfortunately is more useful for the professionals for whom the articles were originally written than for parents. There's a lot of important information buried in here, but for most people it'll be difficult to access.
On the jacket, Sally J Rogers, Ph D states, "...........Adults with AS and parents of children with AS will find it a veritable encyclopedia.............". I certainly agree with this statement, but would add some qualifying remarks. It is undoubtedly intended as a detailed text for scholars and specialists in Psychiatry and Psychology who are fully versed in scientific investigatory techniques, and lay readers including even many with good levels of general education, will find reading it a daunting task. However, dogged persistence may well be very rewarding. For those general readers who wish to gain some insight into what has become known as Asperger Syndrome, I would recommend that they first read less demanding texts in order to obtain some general grounding in the subject - such as 'Asperger's Syndrome' by Dr Tony Attwood.
