The Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships: Decoding Social Mysteries Through the Unique Perspectives of Autism-2nd edition
Authors: Temple Grandin & Sean Barron
This book was co-written by two people, Temple Grandin and Sean Barron, who both share stories from his/her life about struggles and successes in carving a social niche. Both have Autism, but each has different approaches and experiences. The publisher’s brief explanation of the two provide a flavor of the contrast:
"...Temple’s logical mind controlled her social behavior. She interacted with many adults and other children, experiencing varied social situations. Logic informed her decision to obey social rules and avoid unpleasant consequences...”
“...Sean’s emotions controlled his social behavior. Baffled by social rules, isolated and friendless, he made up his own, and applied them to others. When they inevitably broke his rules, he felt worthless and unloved..."
Here is a description copied from the publisher's website:
"Born with autism, both Temple Grandin and Sean Barron now live famously successful social lives. However, their paths were quite different. Temple's logical mind controlled her social behavior. She interacted with many adults and other children, experiencing varied social situations. Logic informed her decision to obey social rules and avoid unpleasant consequences. Sean's emotions controlled his social behavior. Bafﬂed by social rules, isolated and friendless, he made up his own and applied them to others. When they inevitably broke his rules, he felt worthless and unloved.
Both Temple and Sean ultimately came to terms with the social world and found their places in it. Whether you are a person with autism, a caregiver in the autism community, or just someone interested in an outsider view of society, their powerful stories will enthrall and enlighten you."
