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.
