This book is written by a woman who overcame a severe disability to become a successful designer of livestock equipment. Though professionals have been theorizing about it for years, the phenomenon called autism has re mained shrouded in mystery. The au thor makes a few dents in this mys tique, giving us insights which are rare because autism by its nature generally precludes such expression and analysis of emotion. She combines a personal perspective with relevant research in formation in assessing how autism can be overcome and even, in some ways, turned to personal advantage. This ac count will be significant reading for any professional or lay person interested in autism, and is also a moving story of the human hidden behind a distorting facade. Amy Goffman, Registered Physical Therapist, Lake Forest, Ill.

Temple's remarkable story is uniquely valuable in helping us see autism from the 'inside. Her dedication to science and her uncompromising honesty about herself will help scientists understand the links between neurology, empathy, and altruism.' Lorna Jean King, OTR, FAOTA, Center for Neuro-Developmental Studies 'This is the story of a frightening journey which provides the reader with a first hand account of the sense of isolation, hopelessness, and anxiety suffered by autistics and their families.'
