As an animal scientist and a person with autism, Temple Grandin's professional training and personal history have created a perspective like no other thinker in the field, and this is her exciting, groundbreaking view of the intersection of autism and animal. Unlike other well-known writers in the field of animal behavior -- When Elephants Weep by psychoanalyst Jeffrey Moussaleff Masson, How Dogs Think by psychologist and dog trainer Stanley Coren, and The Hidden Life of Dogs by anthropologist Elizabeth Marsha Thomas -- Temple Grandin is an animal scientist who has devoted the last 30 years of her life to the study of animals. This book is the culmination of that life's work -- a book whose sweep is huge, including just about anything that gallops, trots, slithers, walks, or flies. Temple Grandin is like no other author on the subject of animals because of her training and because of her autism; understanding animals is in her blood and her bones.

Temple Grandin has done it again! If you are interested in animals, or autism, you should read this book.

An incredible book written by an austic woman. Her insights to animal behavior and the correlation to autism is educational, fascinating and enlightening. I found myself respecting what autistic people could bring to our understanding of the mind if we can only learn their way of communication-and not stay so stuck in our way!
