Giving adult "spectrumites" insight into how the "normal" person thinks, reacts, and responds does help alleviate some problems that are experienced in the work place. However, it's not going to help with the total butt-heads you meet there and there are plenty! This is an exceptionally easy to read book, a little patronizing but with good intention.
