Publisher's Summary

Many people suffer from feelings of stress and anxiety in their everyday lives. For people with Asperger syndrome (AS), this stress can be particularly difficult to manage. On a daily basis people with AS must fit into a world that seems totally foreign to them, and this can increase feelings of alienation and anxiety, making life's challenges especially hard to cope with.  

The first book on anxiety written specifically for adults with Asperger syndrome, this book offers practical advice on how individuals with AS can manage their anxiety more effectively. 

As a person with AS who has struggled with feelings of anxiety and learnt how to overcome them, Nick Dubin shares his own tried and tested solutions along with up-to-date research on stress management for individuals with AS, including a chapter on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Dubin explores the key problem areas that can lead to anxiety for people with AS such as lack of social skills, difficulties establishing romantic relationships and uncertainty about employment.  

Asperger Syndrome and Anxiety provides real solutions to a common problem and is essential listening for anyone with AS who has trouble managing stress. The book will also be of interest to family members, teachers and other professionals working with individuals with AS.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Extremely well researched and presented.

The content was amazing. I had no idea about some of the conditions that were explained. Had to listen to chapter two twice.

Excellent Book!

This book was extremely informative and interesting. I finished it in 2 days! Each chapter was full of valuable and useful information. The author cited examples within each topic which were relevant and drove home his points.

My daughter has Asperger’s and will definitely benefit from this book and the author’s life experiences he recounts. I highly recommend this book.

thank you, thank yoh

You said all you hope is help another person with book. look no farther. I didn't know I even had these problems till I start listening to learn more about my son. I just cried for the first 3 chapters because of how real this is for me. I have not been living my life. it has been false perception of me that I had to follow because neurotypicals think what everyone should be. thank you again now the search for the true me.

I could relate to so much

I could relate to so many of the examples that were given. I love the way this book is laid out. They do a great job explaining different aspects of having Aspergers and how anxiety plays a role. The narrator did an awesome job, I've had to skip many books because of the narrator's voice. My only complaint is that I can't find any other audio books by these authors
