As a popular advice columnist in the UK, Barbara Jacobs never suspected she’d be the one needing the relationship advice. But when she fell in love with Danny, a man with Asperger’s Syndrome, she quickly learned to expect the unexpected. In this book, Barbara candidly delves into the dynamics of their relationship. She lovingly compares Danny to Mr. Spock, a character who thrives on logic rather than emotion, while admitting that she was quite opposite. Join Barbara and Danny on their tumultuous journey in love, and learn about Asperger’s along the way through figures, diagnostic guidelines, quotes and surveys by other couples, and more. If you love someone with Asperger’s, or have Asperger’s yourself, you can learn a lot from this book. Note: This book addresses some mature topics.
