The Journal Of Best Practices by David Finch

“It’s half memoir, half self-help, and aimed at people who have (or are) spouses on the autistic spectrum, but it’s actually a really good memoir/handbook on how to be more self aware in your marriage and attentive to the shit that you do that is irritating to your spouse because of habits that you may not even realize you have — and how to be understanding and accepting of those same inclinations (to a certain, reasonable extent) in your own spouse. ”
