    1. I teach vocational skills to high school students on the spectrum and I bought this book to see if it would help me. It is well-written and concise. The author is herself on the spectrum.Sadly, a very large percentage (well over 50%) of people diagnosed with Asperger's (which no longer exists as a diagnosis) or high functioning autism, no matter how intelligent, skilled, or even educated they are, are un- or significantly under-employed. Because people on the spectrum usually have significant di [...]

    2. As someone with high-functioning autism who is hoping to transition into the workplace soon, I was hoping for a book which would give me some practical advice about working, particularly how to handle the social side of things.In all honesty, the only thing this book does well is point out every single possible issue you will encounter in the workplace and how likely it is you will fail at integrating. There are a lot of quotes from people on the spectrum who are in the workplace and - barring o [...]

    3. While the overall tone is often negative, citing how someone on the spectrum may fail, it's important to note these difficulties and that they will at times be very difficult to overcome.I turned to this book after being fired, not due to any technical failings, but due to other workers actively going out of their way to tell HR that they thought I seemed unpleasant in the hall and such. While that was out of my control, other factors had also been causing me stress, giving me migraines, and I d [...]

    4. Aspergers on the Job is a well structured easy going handbook that outlines typical employment issues for persons with Asperger's. The chapters are very short and quick to read, and all consistently end in a 3-part recommendations section: 'What the employee can do', 'To employers and advocates', and 'Questions' (for reflection). Simone takes a well balanced, common sense approach (just like in 'Aspergirls'), where she encourages the players (employees, employers and other stake holders) to take [...]

    5. This is another great book by Rudy Simone which I would highly recommend to anyone with Asperger’s, as well as to those who are teaching, supporting, or supervising someone with AS. The book is laid out in a fashion similar to that of Aspergirls (which I loved!), with each chapter having a discussion of the topic followed by suggestions for the person with AS and for those around them. While disclosure of Asperger’s may be desired or necessary at times, Simone leaves that decision up to the [...]

    6. This book has some useful tips, but it is very negative. Most of the asperger contributors had not had good work experiences. It would have been nice to have some positive outcomes instead of all negative outcomes. I was reading this book to help my son. I got very discouraged reading and had to quit. I am sure my son will have some tough times because of his asperger's but i hope is outcome will be better than the people in this book.

    7. Asperger's On The Job is an easy-to-read handbook. It's mostly built on common sense, but draws from the experience of the 50 people interview for the book. I thought that it offered helpful illustrations and recommendations to people on the Autism spectrum who are looking for work as well as recommendations for the employers and advocates who work with this population.I will definitely be incorporating the job map at the end of the book into my work as a vocational rehabilitation counselor.

    8. I brought this home from the library hoping my husband would read it (he didn't!), but I read and enjoyed it. A lot of the workplace situations didn't apply to me as I work from home and can't hold a regular job, but it did go a long way toward explaining why I have never been able to be successfully employed in a traditional situation.To someone with aspergers who is struggling with employment, or who is looking to make their workplace more aspie friendly - this would be a great place to start. [...]

    9. Very good book, as the title says. Written by someone with Asperger's/High Functioning Autism.I wish I'd known earlier that I am an Aspie, and I wish I'd had this book before I started working. A lot of advice about what kinds of jobs to look for, how to interact with coworkers, etc. I think this should be required reading for anyone who is going to be a boss or manager.Ever notice that books written by Aspies have very long, descriptive titles? Just sayin'

    10. Excellent. Practical, to the point, honest, well-balanced. I would have given it five stars but I wanted more, and the cover is pretty ridiculous :P But I think it'd be a good resource to have on the shelf.

    11. Solid advice and explanations for both people on the autism spectrum and their prospective employers and coworkers about how to survive on the job.

    12. Tips & tools voor mensen met Asperger, collega's en werkgevers. Zeer interessant boek en goede richtlijnen.

    13. One thing I appreciated about this book were the quotes from people on the discussed subject. It made the book feel more relatable.I like the cover!

    14. Easy to read. Well organised. Covered most (if not all) potential issues that might happen in the workplace. Wish there were more active strategies rather than reactive ones.

    15. This book is awful. Doesn't give hope for success, and honestly, the ideas presented seemed unreasonable. There are far better books out there. Don't bother with this one.

    16. A little simplistic, but it did give me some insight into what Asperger folks go through and think about working. I liked it.
