Summary "Advice for the new Aspie adult. You're just like anyone else - except: You want things the way you want them, when you want them. You're really into history, or art, or gaming... but not so much into dating, making small talk, or following rules. You find many social constructs confusing and difficult to adhere to because they just don't make any sens - and you like things to make sense! You're grown up and graduated and it's time to get out into a world that's not necessarily made for you. So what can you do? Fear not, dear Aspie! Let this book be your guide as you navigate the waters of adulthood - a tough journey, even for Neurotypicals. Penned by Blythe Grossberg, author of the bestselling book, Asperger's Rules!, you'll get a better grasp in the ins-and-outs of career goals, romance, and socializing. With an estimated half a million Aspies set to enter the workforce within the next decade, your participation in the institution of adulthood is required, and it's totally possible to do it on your own terms. Get out on your own and make the spectrum work for you!"--Back cover
