Read in September, 2011

As you many know Temple Grandin is austistic and also a professor at Colorado State University. As such I should have know that this book would remind me of the peer-reviewed journal articles I read in grad school, but at the same time, the insights were wonderful. Temple has a wonderful way of taking what she sees as an autistic (autistic savant some might say) and as a professor and teaching the rest of us how to see the same thing. The book is also organized very well and the author progresses through the various animals about which she desires to instruct us. I also appreciate that towards the end of her work, she summarizes her findings with very realistic findings and recommendations that convey that she is not a fanatical animal rights activist but rather a realistic advocate for humane treatment of our animal charges.
