I Am Aspienwoman- review

I have recently finished reading I Am AspienWoman by Tania Marshall.  It is similar in style to her previous book (I Am AspienGirl), visually stunning with striking photos throughout, and quotes from both women on the spectrum, and their families/friends/colleagues/psychologists.  Rather than being a textbook list of typical traits of “AspienWomen”, she has allowed the women to speak for themselves- their diversity, strengths and challenges.  Some of the later sections in the book are a Mentors section (with introduction, strengths, tips and contact details); a list of commonly observed characteristics, traits and strengths of adult females; and a list of reasons to obtain an adult formal diagnosis.  Very thorough, visual and positive.
