Thinking in Pictures - And Other Reports from My Life with Autism

by Temple Grandin - £10.99  Bloomsbury Publishing (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747585329 | ISBN 10: 0747585326

The idea that some people think differently, though no less humanly, is explored in this inspiring book.
 
Temple Grandin is a gifted and successful animal scientist, and she is autistic. Here she tells us what it was like to grow up perceiving the world in an entirely concrete and visual way - somewhat akin to how animals think, she belives - and how it feels now. Through her finely observed understanding of the workings of her mind she gives us an invaluable insight into autism and its challenges.

"Grandin's window on to the subjective experience of autism is of value to all of us who hope to gain a deeper understanding of the human mind."
(Washington Times)
