I've uploaded two Paperback Newton books to UNNA related to Asperger
Syndrom. Both are by Marc Segar:
The Battles of the Autistic Thinker, a personal story of a man that had Asperger's Syndrom and how he learned
to cope.

A survival guide for people with Asperger syndrome, a bookwith suggestions for people with Asperger Syndrom on how to deal
with it in the real world

Asperger Syndome (AS) is a disability on the autistic spectrum that is
characterized by difficulties in both verbal and non-verbal communication,
challenging social behavior, and difficulties understanding the
intentions of other as well as one's own emotions. It is a
neurobiological condition whose origin and cause remains unknown. Persons
diagnosed with AS tend to be on the higher functioning end of the autistic
spectrum. Many of them are able to become independent as adults, and lead
apparently "normal lives." However, appearance is not reality for those
who live with them as mates or as their children or relatives. Persons
with AS are burdened with a wide range of "hidden" problems and
difficulties throughout their lives.

If you relate to anything in this description or know someone that does
you'll find these interesting reading. Search Google for "Asperger
Syndrom" and "mindblind" if you want to find more information.
