User Review  - MichaelRWolf - LibraryThing

Summary: Wait for the *graphic* novel. No doubt, Temple has triumphed over her "disability", turning it around to a strength. Unfortunately, the book amplifies it as a weakness. About 25% through, her ... Read full review

I read Animals in Translation by Temple Grandin last year and loved it. I found her insights and speculations about the thought processes of animals (and people) truly intriguing. Reading the book ... Read full review

I liked this book more than I did Grandin's Animals in Translation. This is a book crammed full of information - scientific, personal and medical - about living with autism. I would have liked more of ... Read full review

User Review  - shigaki - LibraryThing

Not what I had expected. More a book on understanding autism, it's treatment and understanding the varying behaviors that cover a wider spectrum than I could have imagined. Not a biography, more of a handbook covering the basics of autism. Read full review

Temple, thank you! You inspired me in a lot of ways then I ever realized before. I watched the movie that was based on your life and I have to tell you: that was the one thing that inspired me the most when it came to living with Autism. My name is Jessica Ness. I've known I was autistic for eleven years now. I first found out I was autistic when I was ten. Temple, after seeing the movie based on your life and reading about everything you've done in your life already, your story gave me a ton of inspiration. I actually love to write books too! I actually have three novels done and I'm working on a children's book series. Without knowing about you and reading and watching your whole life story, I honestly don't know where I would be right now. I really hope I meet you in person someday. Thank you for everything! You will always inspire me to be all I can be!
