Temple Grandin is such an amazing person. I really enjoyed this book. It was well put-together and easy to follow. Grandin's insight into her experience with autism is awe-inspiring. Having read her book Thinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism first, this book clarified a lot of important concepts that I did not fully understand the importance of previously, such as the symbol of doors. If you are at all interested in Autism Spectrum Disorders, I highly recommend this book. It's a quick read and definitely worth it. Grandin goes through each stage of her life from early childhood to young adulthood and describes her own hardships and successes in living with autism. While no two individuals with ASDs are the same, Grandin gives insight into her own life, which may be beneficial to others. It is also an important tool in better understanding how some individuals with ASDs see the world.
