More > boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful.

"In sociology, manners are the unenforced standards of conduct which show the actor to be cultured, polite, and refined. They are like laws in that they codify or set a standard for human... More > behavior, but they are unlike laws in that there is no formal system for punishing transgressions, other than social disapproval. They are a kind of norm. What is considered "mannerly" is highly susceptible to change with time, geographical location, social stratum, occasion, and other factors. That manners matter is evidenced by the fact that large books have been written on the subject, advice columns frequently deal with questions of mannerly behavior, and that schools have existed for the sole purpose of teaching manners. A lady is a term frequently used for a woman who follows proper manners; the term gentleman is used as a male counterpart; though these terms are also often used for members of a particular social class.< Less

The practice of beginning the study of geography with the locality in which the pupil lives, in order that his first ideas... More > of geographical conceptions may be gained from observation directed upon the real conditions existing about him, has been steadily gaining adherence during the past few years as a rational method of entering upon the study of geography.
After the pupil has finished an elementary study of the locality, he is ready to pass to an elementary consideration of the world as a whole, to get his first conception of the planet on which he lives.

This book is a collection of real life stories written by people with Autism and Asperger as well as those who are parents or caregivers of those who have either Autism or Aspergers.
I would like to... More > thank each and everyone who contributed to the contents of this book.
I would also like to dedicate this book to Tommy K. a boy of 12 who had Aspergers and was killed in Brooklyn, NY when a group of kids called him over to them, and demanded his sneakers. When he said I’m not suppose to take my shoes off outside they stabbed him and stole the shoes. He attended public school and this was 3 days after Christmas his mother had gone into a store to get milk and came out to find her son dead. A senseless crime that could have been avoided if Tommy had proper social training to recognize the dangers of going over to the gang of kids and not just given them his sneakers. The two that where arrested where charged as minors they will be home when they turn 21.< Less
