A Few Books on Autism

Someone asked me this recently and I realized that I didn’t have a running list of books that I’ve picked up over the years and that I’ve read.

So, this post will do just that.

Here are a few books that I’ve read over the years on autism that have provided value to me as I have endeavored to learn more about the life that I have been so fortunate to live.

I’ll withhold any commentary that I have about them on this post but if you have any questions you can always reach out to me directly and ask (or ping me via Twitter: @8BIT).

You can get most of these via Amazon:

  1. The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome
  2. Asperger’s From the Inside Out
  3. Thinking in Numbers: Life, Love, Meaning, and Math
  4. NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity
  5. The Journal of Best Practices: A memoir of Marriage, Asperger Syndrome, and One Man’s Quest to Be a Better Husband
  6. Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism
  7. The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum
  8. The Way I See It: A Personal Look at Autism
  9. Raising Cubby: A Father and Son’s Adventures with Asperger’s, Trains, Tractors, and High Explosives
  10. Be Different: My Adventures with Asperger’s and My Advice for Fellow Aspergians, Misfits, Families, and Teachers
  11. Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger’s
  12. Asperger’s on the Job: Must-Have Advice for People with Asperger’s or High Functioning Autism and their Employers, Educators, and Advocates
  13. Asperger’s Syndrome Workplace Survival Guide: A Neurotypical’s Secrets for Success
  14. The Complete Guide to Getting a Job for People with Asperger’s Syndrome: Find the Right Career and Get Hired

This list isn’t complete by any stretch but I’ve spent far too much time finding the books, providing links, and running down mental rabbit trails as I’ve recollected my time reading these materials.

So, with that, I’ll just promise that I’ll continue to update the list as I find more time and as I read more books.
