This should be mandatory reading in all schools. What an insight to the minds of animals. I've had animals all of my life and many new and useful things in this book. I recommended this book to all of my friends that own and love animals of all kinds.

This book will open your eyes in so many ways. You will be mystified by the abilities of Temple ~ and see all the possibilities and hold a great respect for all autistic people. You will wonder why we do not encourage autistic people to use the unique skills they have, which those of us who are "normal" find ourselves sorely lacking in. My eyes teared. I recommend this book to all Future Farmer of America members, 4-H members, animal shelter workers, animal rescue workers, and any person who thinks they understand animals, even down to their own dog or cat.

I couldn't put this book down. The way Temple Grandin sees the world made so much sense to me. I had to rent the movie "Temple Grandin" from netflix after reading this. I can't wait to read more by her. Inspiring story, autistic or not, she's brilliant.
