Publisher's Summary

When Temple Grandin was born, her parents knew that she was different. It wasn’t until years later that she was diagnosed with autism, a brain disorder that makes communication difficult. Today, Dr. Temple Grandin is a brilliant scientist and professor of animal science at Colorado State University. Her world-changing career has revolutionized the livestock industry - each year, half the cattle in the United States are handled in cruelty-free facilities she has designed. She is also a passionate advocate for autism, using her experience to prove that people with this disorder can have “normal” lives.
To achieve this unprecedented success, Temple used a unique ability: she thinks visually, the same way animals do. Because she thinks in pictures, she can see the world as a cow, or a dog, or a pig might see it. And so she knows that animals raised for food deserve good lives and should be treated with respect. Now she gives them their voices.

Insightful and educational

Watching the movie about Temple inspired me to listen to this book. I felt the book was excellent for giving a person insight into autism if you know of someone that has autism. It helped me to better understand why they do what they do. If we can understand their perspective on things, we can work together to accomplish any task, rather than being frustrated that they don't communicate 'my way'.
