Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Temple Grandin was born, her parents knew that she was different. Years later she was diagnosed with autism.

   While Temples doctor recommended a hospital, her mother believed in her. Temple went to school instead.

   Today, Dr. Temple Grandin is a scientist and professor of animal science at Colorado State University. Her world-changing career revolutionized the livestock industry. As an advocate for autism, Temple uses her experience as an example of the unique contributions that autistic people can make.

   This compelling biography complete with Temples personal photos takes us inside her extraordinary mind and opens the door to a broader understanding of autism.

Synopsis:

An authorized biography about Temple Grandin's life with autism and her groundbreaking work as a scientist, and designer of cruelty-free livestock facilities, by Sibert Medalist, Sy Montgomery. Includes photographs, many from Temple's personal collection.
