An interesting look...
Into the private life of Temple Grandin. The stories contained within this title are heartwarming, often quite funny, or in the cases of some of Grandin's struggles, occasionally infuriating--it is difficult for women in academia as is, but was much worse a couple generations ago--now compound that with Autism. You can feel and empathize with Grandin's frustrations. Lesko does a fine job of retelling in interview style stories from the conversations she and Grandin have had. Be prepared, as noted, it is interview style rather than a continuous storyline. That being said, it makes it easy to jump in and out of the tales. My only complaint is that the narrator for this one was a bit too overly animated for my liking, though she did a fair job and this may be a characteristic other listeners will enjoy.
