    I bought this book for my 22 year old son who has ASD Aspergers and who finds it difficult to initiate, maintain and end conversations in the workplace I hadn t realised this book was written for teenagers but having said that, it was so complicated my son who is very bright couldn t make any sense of it and neither could I, though I have been working therapeutically in the field of ASD for 17 years We both puzzled over it for about 1 2 an hour and then gave up.

    Not what I was looking for I bought for a teenager and its actually hard to follow so didn t give it to him Might be appropriate as a teaching tool.
