About the Author
As a child, Temple Grandin could not speak. Her silent existence was broken only by rhythmic rocking and occasional fits of screaming and thrashing. Diagnosed with autism, Temple s many caregivers eventually helped her contradict her doctors' morbid predictions and go on to become one of the autism community's most beloved success stories. Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is a popular international lecturer on autism and the author of Emergence: Labeled Autistic, Thinking in Pictures, Animals in Translation, and Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships. One of the world s leading experts in livestock facility design, over half of the cattle in North America are handled in facilities designed by her. She credits her visual thinking and her systemizing mind, both characteristics of autism, for her ability to be "the woman who thinks like a cow." Temple continues to be an inspiration and role model to millions.

**I hope that I have the opportunity to see Dr. Grandin speak. She has changed my relationship with my son forever! I was actually able to "feel" the things that he feels every day. Thank you!
My only criticism is that the price of this, as an e-book, is a smidgen high for material that was formerly printed in magazines. While the book does save the reader from having to hunt down the original sources, the revised/updated articles still don't quite feel reasonable in price. I honestly feel this should be a few bucks cheaper. A potential issue for some readers is that they may find Dr. Grandin's writing a little overly repetitive...as each of these articles needed to establish points individually that the book doesn't need to reiterate quite so frequently. I don't consider that an issue however, as some will benefit from the repetition either due to neurological issues and/or a lack of familiarity with the material. Just be prepared to deal with a little bit of extra text if you are a quick learner; the quality of the content is worth it.
On that note, the overall quality is too high and too solid for me to quibble over a few dollars for any meaningful length of time. Excellent piece of information from one of the foremost authorities on the topic. Highly recommended.
