Love, Partnership, or Singleton on the Autism Spectrum – Review


Book Review of
 
“LOVE, PARTNERSHIP OR SINGLETON ON THE AUTISM SPECTRUM”
Edited by Luke Beardon, PhD and Dean Worton
Published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

There are forewords at the beginning of the book from Sarah Hendrickx, Dean Beadle and Tony Attwood.

The book is a collection of chapters, 26 in total, where people with Autism are sharing their perspectives on what relationships mean to them, including those who prefer not to have a relationship, for a range of reasons. So the 26 authors share their experiences and knowledge about relationships that have been both successful and unsuccessful. As Tony Attwood said
“the wisdom and advice in this insightful book will contribute greatly towards an understanding of relationships from the Autism Spectrum Disorder perspective”.

The preface by Luke Beardon is, as always an interesting read and I shall be bringing the book along on the 1 March 2017 for any of you who wish to borrow it.
