I have worked in the Autism field for 10 years. This was one of the first books I read to acquaint myself with those that are autistic. The information I received was a great insight into what a parent must go through - the battles they must face daily. Excellent read!

The "overview" for this book states that Temple cured herself, however, I don't think this is what the book itself is saying. The overview was most likely not written by the author of this book, but by a marketing person. Give this book a chance.

Temple Grandin is an unique person, who had people that had helped her. A person can slide in either direction on the spectrum. I have a son with Asperger's Syndrome. He could have slid further into the autism spectrum, but he has teachers and family members who have helped him. He can be considered a recovered autistic, but he like Ms. Grandin will always have some autistic tendencies. Read the book, don't judge the book by the cover.

I had planned to read this book until I read the part that Autism was "cured". You don't cure Autism. Any book that claims to cure it, obviously isn't scientific or based on fact and isn't worth reading.

But it doesn't sound like something I'm GOING to read. You can't "cure" yourself from autism. You're autistic forever. I don't want to cure myself, anyway.
