      There were some things I disagreed with, but on the whole it was a really interesting reading of P&P and for those with less experience with AS people, I think it provides pretty clear descriptions of traits and behaviours that can be expected.

      I've seen various movie versions of Pride and Prejudice but that didn't give me enough background to really get into this book. Think it's more for true Jane Austin fans that also are into psychology.

      A very interesting break down of the characters in Pride and Prejudice and where they are on the autism spectrum.
