Not for adults.

Maybe you give this book to a an early to late teen to prepare them for adulthood? For adults, it’s pretty useless and mis marketed. Audio isn’t to blame but I’ll be asking for money back -could tell pretty quickly we were staying in shallow end of pool.

Asperger's and borderline intellectual functioning

This narrative seems to be designed for people who have Borderline Intellectual Functioning in that the sentences are simple, as if one were speaking to a child. What if you're an engineer? This is a Jack and Jill Reader format. I found it intellectually insulting.

ADULTHOOD WITH ASPERGERS IS CHALLENGING!

I found this book to address many areas that an adult with Aspergers may needs to learn how to act or respond now that he is an adult with different expectations of him .

Perfect for our family with a young adult

We listened to it as a family and every bit of it was spot on. We could relate to all the scenarios and even the scenarios we have not reached. I believe books like these will help the young adult in our family grow and prepare for the future.

Oh dear!

I don't know where to begin, but I hardly made it past the introduction.

For a start, it's aimed more at adolescents on the spectrum rather than adults. It's also presented in a patronising way and the narrator has a very grating voice -- I'm not enjoying it.

Aimed at young adults/first time out of home

It was fairly basic overall, probably some good content there if you have no idea where you should start or the types of things you may encounter or want to be aware of, but it didn’t really cover the depth/etc that I was hoping it might.
