All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome takes a playful look at Asperger Syndrome (AS), drawing inspiration from the feline world in a way that will strike a chord with all those who are familiar with AS. Delightful colour photographs of cats bring to life familiar characteristics such as sensitive hearing, scampering at the first sign of being stroked, and particular eating habits. Touching, humorous and insightful, this book evokes the difficulties and joys of raising a child who is different and leaves the reader with a sense of the dignity, individuality, and potential of people with AS. This engaging book is an ideal, gentle introduction to the world of AS. 'There is a great deal of truth in humour. If you have only just begun to discover why someone with Asperger's syndrome is different, this book will inform and entertain you. The descriptions provide an accurate balance between the qualities and difficulties associated with Asperger's syndrome, while the photographs will make the journey of discovery enjoyable and remarkable.' - Tony Attwood, author of Asperger's Syndrome and The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome

Book Review: All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome by Kathy Hoopmann - Reviewed by FibyB (15 Jan 2010)
Filled with beautiful photo's of cats, this book provides an easy to read, basic description of what Asperger's syndrome is, with out too many words. I brought this book for my son who has Asperger's. Although he couldn't see himself in the book (we could see some of the similarities) he still enjoyed the book. But remember, some children with Asperger's can be very literal, and may feel this book isn't accurate if it mentions some signs of Asperger's that they don't display- remembering that every one with Asperger's is different.
Personally, I love this book!
