  • Great book! "How to Adult" would be a more appropriate title...

    by on

    Great well written and very systematic walk-through of both practicalities and psychology of adult life, and how to do it... step by step.

    Highly useful... Not only for autistic individuals but for really just anyone who is moving out of home for the first time, or who haven't lived independently yet (such as not in a relationship/marriage), or who has already lived independently for years but is still struggling with life management!
