Reviews

In her autobiography, Emergence: Labeled Autistic (LJ 5/15/86), Grandin (animal studies, Colorado State Univ.) related how, as a high-functioning autistic adult, she overcame her disability to become a designer of livestock-handling equipment. Recently profiled in Oliver Sacks's An Anthropologist on Mars (LJ 2/15/95), Grandin also lectures on autism at meetings and conferences. Using insights from scientific studies, autobiographies by autistic adults, and her own experience, she lucidly explains how people with autism differently perceive and process visual and sensory information and experience and express emotions, as well as develop social skills. She reviews diagnosis and treatment of autism, and discusses its association with talent and genius. Throughout the book we learn of Grandin's own strategies for coping with her autism and how autism has given her an advantage in understanding the behavior of other animals. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the subject.‘Lucille Boone, San Jose P.L. Cal.

"I hardly know what to say about this remarkable book. . . It provides a way to understand the many kinds of sentience, human and animal, that adorn the earth." -Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs

"There are innumerable astounding facets to this remarkable book. . . . Displaying uncanny powers of observation . . . [Temple Grandin] charts the differences between her life and the lives of those who think in words." -The Philadelphia Inquirer

"A uniquely fascinating view not just of autism but of animal-and human-thinking and feeling, [providing] insights that can only be called wisdom."
-Deborah Tannen, author of You Just Don't Understand

A high-functioning autistic, Grandin presents linked articles on her life and her work as an animal scientist. (Nov.)
