“Sex, Drugs and Asperger’s Syndrome (ASD)” – Review

Book Review of

“Sex, Drugs and Asperger’s Syndrome (ASD)”

A User Guide to Adulthood

by Luke Jackson
with a foreword by Tony Attwood.
Jessica Kingsley Publishers

I wholeheartedly recommend this book. This is the unabridged sequel to Luke Jackson’s best selling guide to adolescence Freaks, Geeks and Asperger Syndrome. In this new book he reveals the pitfalls involved in the transition to adulthood and the challenges to adult life.

He delivers his information in a humorous, personal way but is very keen not to generalise or stereotype. He also uses bullet points and lists which I personally found very helpful to focus on. He covers everything from socialising, bullying, drugs, alcohol, relationships, finding and keeping your first job and what topics are good to talk about in social situations and what topics you probably shouldn’t talk about in social situations.

Tony Attwood provides the foreword and focuses on the sensory issues which Luke refers to throughout his book.

We will be bringing this to our next monthly post-diagnostic support group to donate to Autism Inclusive.
