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.

WINNER OF 'BEST NON FICTION' IN THE GOODREADS CHOICE AWARDS 2013 It's estimated that one in almost a hundred people are diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum but there is far more hope for them today than ever before thanks to groundbreaking new research. In this fascinating and highly readable book, Temple Grandin offers her own experience as an autistic person alongside remarkable new discoveries about the autistic brain, as well as genetic research. She also highlights long-ignored sensory problems as well as the need to treat autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagnosis. Most exciting of all, she argues that raising and educating children on the autistic spectrum needs to be less about focusing on their weaknesses, and more about fostering their unique contributions.

In this exciting new e edition, Temple Grandin returns to her groundbreaking work, Animals in Translation, to address the last ten years of developments in behavioral research, animal welfare, and farming regulations. Originally published in 2005, Animals in Translation received unanimous critical praise and was a bestseller in both hardcover and paperback, and Grandin’s Q&A updates this classic text with the most current scientific research. Grandin’s training as an animal scientist and her experience as a person with autism give her a perspective unlike any other expert in the field. Grandin and coauthor Catherine Johnson present their powerful theory that people with autism may be able to empathically understand animal behavior in a way that eludes neurotypical people—putting them in the ideal position to translate “animal talk.” Exploring animal fear, pain, aggression, love, friendship, communication, learning, and even genius, Grandin is a faithful guide into their world. Grandin, standing at the intersection of autism and animal science, offers unparalleled observations and extraordinary ideas, revealing that animals are smarter and more complex than anyone could have imagined.
