Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

If autism had a rock star, it would be Grandin. Diagnosed with autism when little was known about the condition, Grandin went on to earn a Ph.D., become an expert on the humane treatment of livestock, and write prominent autobiographical works on autism (e.g., Thinking in Pictures). This collection of articles from Autism Asperger's Digest that draw heavily from her own life provides snippets of her views on the condition. The columns are organized by theme, each with a new introductory section written by Grandin. Notable sections include labels and diagnoses, education (especially harnessing a child's special talent), and the social world of autism. She distinguishes nicely traits from autism vs. those that are unacceptable from any child. While the book has a great deal to offer, it suffers from repetition across chapters. These articles do not present information in an in-depth manner, but they provide a nice overview from a prominent member of the autism community. A book like this might be more accessible to readers than some of the meatier volumes on autism. Recommended for public libraries.

Meet the Author

Temple Grandin
As a child, Temple Grandin could not speak. Her silent existence was broken only by rhythmic rocking and occasional fits of screaming and thrashing. Temple’s many caregivers eventually helped her contradict her doctors’ pessimistic predictions and go on to become one of the autism community’s most beloved success stories. Temple Grandin, PhD, is a popular international lecturer on autism and the author of Emergence: Labeled Autistic, Thinking in Pictures, Animals in Translation, Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships, Animals Make Us Human, and The Way I See It. One of the world’s leading experts in livestock facility design, over half of the cattle in North America are handled in facilities designed by her. She credits her visual thinking and her systemizing mind, both characteristics of autism, for her ability to be “the woman who thinks like a cow.” Now the subject of the acclaimed 2010 HBO movie based on her life, and recently named a "hero" of 2010 in Time magazine's list of the top 100 most influential people in the world, Temple continues to be an inspiration and role model to millions.

    A must read

    Being a teacher for 5 autistic children I have found Dr. Grandin's book to be a godsend. Getting a first hand perspective from inside the world of autism has been invaluable!!

    Excellent Information - all in one place

    I am a mother with VERY limited time to read. I found this book so helpful in dealing with everyday issues. I like having Dr Grandin's thoughts on a variety of topics, not just one. She is so knowledgeable in her field!

    Must read if you have autistic children

    I have a child with high functioning autism and Temple Grandin's book provided his point of view. My husband and I have often said we wish we could spend a day in my son's world to understand how he feels. We feel this book was as close as we will ever get! After reading this book i watched her TedTalk on youtube which was great. TEMPLE IS MY HERO!

    Must read book about Asperger's

    Has so much insight in this disease for parents, grandparents and even the child. Easy to read and understand even the technical portions of the book. Chapters are titled to make it easy to refer to individual subjects. It gives hope to everyone involved with Autism.

    Great Tips/Insight for Parents of Children with ASD

    As a father of a child with ASD/AS, it would be inevitable that I would find this book useful - and I did. I have read her two most famous books - Thinking in Pictures and Emergence, which I rated high, and which complemented each other, telling us the Temple Grandin story. This book isn't like that - it is essentially a re-edited compilation of articles that she wrote over 8 years for a leading ASD/AS magazine.

    This format slightly takes the publishing sheen off the book - there is some repetition (which would not have been evident in the individual articles), and the organization of the articles are commendable, but not perfect.

    Having said this, there is a LOT of good stuff in the book, of a practical, common sense nature - particularly for parents with young children. This is not a book for adults with ASD/AS (there are only a few pages devoted to college/workforce aged people).

    I certainly would recommend this book to parents with young children in the spectrum.

    Highly Recommended - you must check it out!!

    This book is a compilation of articles and excerpts written by Temple Grandin about her own experiences with Autism, as well as her insight into helping young children and adults who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Even though this book contains no new works from Grandin, it is a very well organized summation of her writings, speeches, and interviews throughout the years, categorized into an easy quick reference format.

    Chapter 2 is titled "Teaching and Education" and is full of useful information for teachers who have children in their classroom with ASD. Grandin goes into great detail discussing the importance of developing a child's talent. She says that educators can identify a child's particular talent or ability and connect other academic and social skills with that child's particular interest or talent. Other passages in this book relate to motivating children with ASD, and even how video games and other obsessions can be a tool for learning.

    This book is full of practical information and techniques teachers can use in their classroom and I would recommend this book to not only families with children on the Autism Spectrum, but to all educators from the elementary level up to the collegiate.

    Cannot recommend

    I am unable to review this book since I have not received it. After I ordered it to be sent to my home (the physical book), I learned that somehow it was put into a Nook account. I do not have a Nook account since I do not have a Nook. I managed to cancel this order, I think. I spoke with "Em" at BN, who could not speak good English but who I think understood me when I canceled my order, however, it has yet to be credited to my VISA. What a nightmare. I've been with BN for a very long time. This is the first time I have ever experienced this kind of problem. I still would like to have the book, physically, not electronicly, but I'm afraid to ask. Dealing with BN over the phone is something I shall never depend on again. Sorry! Respectfully, Weesie, Membership #5004404383
