As an autistic person who knows the value of mindfulness, I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to gain greater awareness of themselves and live more peacefully. Using great analogies, Chris shows how we can manage the stresses of an autism spectrum condition using simple exercises to deal with little things that can build into debilitating stress and ill health.

I have known Chris for a number of years and this book reflects his calm, insightful attitude towards life and Asperger Syndrome very well indeed. There are some wonderful intuitions, even philosophies, in this book that will be beneficial for many people associated with Asperger Syndrome.
Janet Ashfield, life coach and mindfulness practitioner
This book opens with a very supportive introduction for both the person with Asperger's Syndrome considering mindfulness and the professional who may be supporting them. Chris writes in a clear and expressive manner showing a true understanding of both Asperger's Syndrome and mindfulness. I really feel like I have shared in part of Chris's journey and gained along the way.
A great introduction to beginners in the practice of mindfulness. Mitchell provides step-by-step exercises directed at helping individuals with AS to increase their awareness of their own mind, body, and the world around them in a new way... it offers the personal perspective of someone with AS who has not only mastered a way of surviving, but also fully experiencing all that life has to offer. Mitchell makes the practice of mindful living come alive in his own life and offers a path that others may follow.
