Honestly, I think I found the book compelling because I find Temple Grandin so, so fascinating. The writing itself is nothing extraordinary, fairly rudimentary, and quite often choppy. But the ideas portrayed are incredibly intelligent and original. She strays from regurgitating popular animal behavioral theories and gives a unique, personal insight into the temperament, behaviors, and lifestyle of different animal species.

Dr. Grandin is a high-functioning autistic woman with a Phd in Animal Science. She is the author of numerous books, invented the squeeze-box at age 18 (hug machine), humane livestock facility designer, an animal and autism advocate, professor at the Colorado State University... and the list goes on...
