This updated and expanded edition considers the continuing dismal employment statistics for individuals with ASD. The authors take an in-depth look at entrepreneurship. Using real-life examples, they point out that many of the unique characteristics of individuals on the autism spectrum lend themselves well to entrepreneurial ventures. The book explores many unnoticed aspects of Vocational Rehabilitation programs that provide job training and placement for people with disabilities, as well as Social Security Administration programs that offer vocational assistance. Employment figures and prospects have been updated, and new jobs have been added that are well suited for those on the spectrum.

No, I don't think I'm "on the spectrum". See my comments on Temple Grandin's publication in this list.

Early in my career, when I was working with a large feedlot construction company, I sold a contract to a meat-packing plant to design and build a new cattle ramp. During construction, I tactlessly criticized some workmen's sloppy welding. The plant engineer pulled me aside and advised me to apologize before a small problem turned into a major one. I went to the cafeteria and apologized to the staff and in the process learned a great lesson about how to talk about a problem with others.
