1414424_35810153A new (and very short) e-book, Asperger Love, has received good reviews so far—it’s only been out a couple of weeks.

It’s a glimpse into the world of John and Kirsten, young people in a relationship. These young people have Asperger’s syndrome, which means they face some relationship challenges “neurotypicals” usually don’t.

John also happens to be John Robison, known as “Cubby” from “Raising Cubby” by John Elder Robison, well-known author of , Look Me In The Eye, Be Different and Aspergians and Other Misfits. (Check out his web site).

You can see a video interview with both father and son, and read our post Be Different  and also our interview with John Robison, parts one and two of Aspergians and Other Misfits.

You can read an excerpt of Asperger Love at Wrongplanet.net and learn more about a John and Kirsten whose interests (obsessive interests, even) led them to monologue about “quadrocopters, chemistry, Eve Online (Jack), dog biology, forensics, and My Little Pony (Kirsten),” according to author, New York Times reporter Amy Harmon.

Since the book is quite short, really a long essay, we won’t share more, but it is an interesting read for anyone who knows anyone who’s got Asperger’s or anyone interested in the syndrome.

Rating: 4 Cups of Soup!
