    This is a must read book

    Several years ago I heard Temple Grandin being interviewed on a radio talk show. I was beyond amazed, given her childhood history. This is a miraculous story and the accomplishments of this lady are astounding.
    This book is all about real people in a real world who emerge from great difficulties and literally change their world and the world around them.

    Sy Montgomery did a fabulous job capturing the intricate Temple

    Sy Montgomery did a fabulous job capturing the intricate Temple Grandin in this book.  It is obvious a significant amount of time was poured into the writing as can be seen by the plethora of quotes and statistics without losing any character.  "Temple Grandin" is a light read but manages to be enthralling as well.  It is absolutely incredible to watch Temple grow up and overcome every closed door that stood in front of her life long goal to help animals. Although I personally read this for a school project, it would be a worthwhile read for any occasion.

    A must read for all parents with children who have Autism

    I have read a couple of books about Temple Grandin, but this was the best. It is outstanding and should be read by every parent of a child with Autism. I am a Special Education Teacher, but I have never heard or read a more detailed or positive explanation of Autism. And of course Temple is an outstanding example of how someone with this condition can function so productively in the environment. Another young person with a persistent Mother who never gave up and the result is this amazing woman, Temple Grandin! A great read about an outstanding young woman! Well done!
