Descripción del producto
'Grandin has created a beautifully odd and fascinating picture of her life and mind, and her abiding love of animals' Elle 'A fascinating account of how her mind works in an entirely visual way' Irish Times '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 'It's hard to imagine even an intellect as towering as Sacks's coming up with perceptions as rare and completely out of left field as Grandin herself does in this mind-blowing book' Newsday
Reseña del editor
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 believes - 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.Ver Descripción del producto

On a test in high school that measured ability to visualize for spacial relations, I scored 99.99% for all women and above 98% of all men. Verbal processing was always a chore, however, and social cues were and continue to be learned by hard experience and in some cases remain a mystery in many cases. A class that teaches social norms would be good for kids now since they are not obvious to us picture thinkers. Thank goodness Temple's mother and my own mother found ways to help us flourish. We all have special gifts and weaknesses. The key is to realize your strengths and find work in that direction, plus find ways to help your weaknesses. I would also recommend another of her books, "The Austistic Brain". At the end, it discussed strengths and what types of jobs might be good for each. This is similar to my high school career test.
I would definitely recommend this book. Temple's observations helped cattle be processed more humanely. I admit I was a bit squeamish about that part but hearing that she cared about them and found ways to make their time in processing better softened this topic.
For the second half I had to continually keep reminding myself that she is talking about her life and her own interests. She devotes two entire chapters to animals, their thoughts and emotions and connecting with them, and while it was very interesting, I obviously do not have the passion for that particular topic that she does. Some of those chapters I felt like I had to plod through a bit.
Overall I got out of this book what I thought I would—a better understanding of differences in thought pattern. I’m glad I read it.
Who better than Dr. Temple Grandin, PhD who happens to be Autistic, to give insight into the world from the perspective of one who had Autism? Dr. Grandin is an amazing person who has shown what one can achieve if one does not accept "you can't" for an answer, no matter your circumstances.
She and her mother have inspired me to fight for my son, even when "experts" say he has reached his peak or he will never be able to do something. I have learned that sometimes "no" is not the answer. If I had accepted that my son would never do certain things, he wouldn't be speaking now. Most grateful for this and all of Dr. Grandin's books.
