INDIANAPOLIS - eTradeWire -- Asperger's syndrome can be a serious topic. It can also be hilarious!

Stuff Asperger's Like is a collection of over 100 short essays that humorously describe Asperger's, a form of high-functioning autism.

Stuff Aspergers Like explores what being an Aspie (nickname among those in the culture) means. From socialization and communication to education to work to relationships, there are plenty of anecdotes and pop culture references to illustrate traits that surface in everyday interactions.

Whether you're on the spectrum or know someone who is, this humorous collection of tongue-in-cheek essays will entertain and educate.

Relationships: Marrying and partnering, conception of love, interaction with children, dating and foreign love interests
