    For people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the stresses of coping with a world that seems alien to them can often lead to depression. Written specifically for adults with ASD, this ground-breaking book offers accessible and sensitive advice on how to manage depression and make positive steps towards recovery. Nick Dubin shares his own experiences of depression including how he has dealt with it, and everything from initial feelings of anger and frustration to medication, cognitive behavioral therapy and overcoming 'the dark night of the soul'. It explores the aspects of everyday life that can cause people with ASD to feel low, explains how this can escalate and looks at ways in which depression can be prevented. With a chapter on suicide and interviews with his parents, the book provides real, practical solutions to a problem that is often overlooked.

    I did read some of the book and they do have lots of good information. However, this book is not for me which is why I gave it an average rating. It was hard for me to follow the book as I'm not used to the author's writing style. There's nothing wrong how the author writes, but because I have a language based learning disability, this book is hard for me to follow as the author use too many words I don't understand. This book helps me understand that I might have Dysthymia. Besides that, I didn't find the book helpful. But don't use my review too discouraged to read this book. Your experiences may be much better than mine.
