Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I first learnt of Temple Grandin while attending college and am still amazed by her insight and what it means to have Autism. Anyone who works with or has someone in their life who has Autism owes it to themselves to read this book. Your horizons will be expanded. Highly recommended.
