Based solely on the excerpt here, I can't wait to read the rest! Having worked in the Special Education field for 25+ years, so much of Temple's perspective rings true. If nothing else,it will help to affirm the complex realities of working with autistic individuals and help me to understand everything e n b How to better relate to my students.

I have worked as a volunteer in our local schools for many years and often encounter autistic children. There are definitely more today than there were even a few years ago. This is a valuable tool to help us understand how they perceive and react to the world. I can't wait to read this!!!

my niece was diagnosed as mildly autistic. This excerpt, alone, is the reason why I will purchase the book. It will be nice to have a perspective; beyond the limited knowledge of observation; to be better equiped to enjoy her life , more.

I just read this book and I appreciated that the authors tried to explain some of the more scientific information in more common terms. This book gave me more insight into autism than I had before and really complimented what I have learned in college. I've already recommended this book to fellow parents, students, and professors.

This book was a little too technical for me. It goes into great detail about brain differences, with pictures. I liked her other books better, but probably because of my own mindset.

Dr. Grandin speaks with both knowledge and experience in this book. As a biologist she explains the current scientific research in the field of autism in a way that a layman can understand. She uses her own experiences with the subject to ground her knowledge. This book is a very interesting read and especially so if you are interested in autism. It is also a wonderful window into an autistic persons thoughts.

Although, I am not truely Autistic. I definately have some sensory issues. Temple did an amazing job of explaining why I have some of the inconsistancies that I do with what irritates me. I want my family to read it so they will understand more about me.
