"An extraordinary source of inspiration for autistic children, their parents - and all people." * Time * "The Autistic Brain can both enlighten readers with little exposure to autism and offer hope and compassion to those who live with the condition." * Scientific American * "Grandin has reached a stunning level of sophistication about herself and the science of autism. Her observations will assist not only fellow autistics and families with affected members, but also researchers and physicians seeking to better understand the condition." -- Jerome Groopman * The New York Review of Books * "Grandin has helped us understand autism not just as a phenomenon, but as a different but coherent mode of existence that otherwise confounds us...She excels at finding concrete examples that reveal the perceptual and social limitations of autistic and "neurotypical" people alike." * New York Times *
