"The Girl with the Curly Hair describes the difficulty in doing productive tasks via an intangible unit of measurement, ‘social energy.’ In this book, she looks at how and why managing day to day activities, including socialising with work colleagues, friends and family, is so tiring for people with Asperger’s Syndrome and other autism spectrum disorders. She also looks at introversion and extroversion and how they affect social energy." - BOOK JACKET
