it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction

I found this book to be fascinating and thought-provoking. This is a new edition of the book she wrote ten years ago, and in this Grandin adds an update to each chapter.
This is the story of Grandin's life, her disability--autism, and her great ability to design humane facilities for livestock. This is an intimate and insightful look into a person's mind and personality. I learned much more than about autism, I learned about "differentness" and that it may not always be negative.
I am very impressed at how open and up front she is--a person whose disability makes social interaction difficult, yet she presents a very honest picture of how her mind works, and how she is the unique person that she is.
