really liked it
Read in April, 2003

This is not a book that I ever would have picked up to read, had a friend of mine not suggested it to me. I really liked this book it was very interesting, informational, and sometimes disturbing. Not only is Temple an amazing person, but her mother's love for her, and desire to help her achieve her goals is just remarkable.
"Temple Grandin's triumph over autism affects us all-it is reaffirmed that the human spirit can overcome and even extract benefits from our extreme dysfunction's. It is a book that goes beyond autism into, simply, being human." William Carlock (he was one of her teachers, and had a great understanding of her ABILITIES!
This book helps to make it clear that often what one person considerers a disability is actually an ability, maybe to see or do things differently.
If you have an interest in learning more about autism, you might enjoy reading this book.
