This was a fantastic book to read about a most wonderful and unique person, Temple Grandin. Her remarkable life is written in her words and you really get to know what kind of a person she is. Her knowledge of animals is incredible and her insights into the psychology of people as well as people are very interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in what makes people tick and even what makes animals tick.

Draws you in with a variety of connections

You will be engaged, not only because you get to know the author, but also because you might also acquire a genuine sense of connection with the fundament experiences of autism through examples. But then, these examples are carefully tied to and associated with the behavior of animals. For animal lovers, educators, and anyone interested in sociology, this book carries true lessons in empathy on so many levels. A wonderful-wonderful work.

Part of a Great Pair

If you haven't read this book, read it just after you finish Thorn In My Pocket by Temple's mother. The two belong together.

Insightful-should be required ...

I am really enjoying this book. It is one of my mentor texts for my master's thesis. I think anyone who is in the teaching, medical or other helping professions should be required to read it. Parents shold read it. It's well-written and insightful. Interesting and unusual. wish this could be forwarded to Ms. Grandin
