Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is a gifted animal scientist who has designed one-third of all the livestock-handling facilities in the United States. She also lectures widely on autism--because Temple Grandin is autistic, a woman who thinks, feels, and experiences the world in ways that are incomprehensible to the rest of us.

In this unprecedented book, Grandin delivers a report from the country of autism. Writing from the dual perspectivies of a scientist and an autistic person, she tells us how that country is experienced by its inhabitants and how she managed to breach its boundaries to function in the outside world. What emerges in Thinking in Pictures is the document of an extraordinary human being, one who, in gracefully and lucidly bridging the gulf between her condition and our own, sheds light on the riddle of our common identity.

Danielle M, June 18, 2010 (view all comments by Danielle M)
After seeing the HBO film on Temple Grandin, I was eager to know more about this incredible woman and plunged right in to Thinking in Pictures. As a writer, Ms. Grandin has a unique voice that immediately draws you in. She is highly intelligent but her passion and humor leap off the page. This book taught me a great deal about autism and how the human brain works and I never once felt as though I was reading a textbook. Whether you know someone with autism or not, it's impossible not to be captivated by Temple Grandin and her amazing life.
