A co-worker first introduced me to Temple Grandin when telling me about a biopic of her featuring Claire Danes. I watched the movie (being a fan of Danes) and was impressed to find out about Grandin's work in a variety of fields. So when this book came across my desk to review I was pretty excited and it definitely came through. Grandin and Panek do a great job exploring autism through the brain and understanding through the latest technology and research how to make sense of autism, recognize the challenges it can represent, but also the innumerable ways it can add value to people's lives. She doesn't present it as a gift by any means but she does excellent in emphasizing what benefits and opportunities are available if we more consciously and sincerely integrate autism into our culture.
