This book isn't so much a biography as the title makes it sound, but a book for people to understand autism in general. I would say this is about 1/3 Temple Grandin's life and 2/3 information about autism. That being said, it's a very interesting read--especially to those who don't understand very much about autism.
Grandin does a very good job illustrating how many people with autism think, and also shows how much potential many of them truly have. She makes sense of odd, seemingly pointless behaviors, and explains what things people with autism truly need help with learning. This book goes over multiple biological, social,psychological, and environmental issues that affect people with autism. She sometimes seems to go off course a bit talking about animal behavior--but that in itself just further helps explain autistic human behavior. (Or regular human behavior too!) Great read and should be read by anyone who knows or works with anyone with autism.
