Alone Together shares the struggle of one couple to rescue their marriage. Since receiving her husband's diagnosis of AS, their marriage has improved substantially. They learnt to accept each other's different approaches to life, and found ways to overcome problems and misunderstandings. The book includes tips on making an Asperger marriage succeed.
