    This guide by Dr. Roberson's provides a high-level overview of Asperger's, and is a good introductory guide.

    The relatively short length, easy-to-read and also low-cost for the electronic copy makes this a suitable resource for anyone who might not want to purchase the much lengthier Complete Guide by Dr. Atwood, nor have a need to. (e.g. family, friends, teachers)
