One of the best books I am reading (and have read) on the subject, extremely well written, sometimes humorous, Temple Grandin offers both complex views (the scientific, and genetic latest breakthroughs about autism in the first two chapters are riveting and challenging) as well as her personal recollection of her childhood and adult life make it a fascinating read. Some other books about autism I have been disappointed in as they offered too many simplifications or mere quotations without analysis or probing into the psychological and scientific slow discovery of autism

I really enjoyed this book, although scientific in nature, it is easy to comprehend for a non-scientist. The angle chosen by the writer to describe the strengths and characteristics of the autistic brain is interesting and inspiring. It is also relevant to the understanding of the ordinary brain.
