Description:New. Temple Grandin is a gifted animal scientist who has...New. Temple Grandin is a gifted animal scientist who has designed a third of all the livestock-handling facilities in the United States. She also lectures widely on autism, because Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is autistic. She is a woman who thinks, feels, and experiences the world in ways that are different. In Thinking in Pictures Grandin delivers a report from the country of autism. Writing from the dual perspectives of a scientist and an autistic person, she tells us how that country is experienced by its inhabitants and how she managed to breach its boundaries to function in the outside world. What emerges is the document of an extraordinary human being, one who, in lucidly bridging the gulf between her condition and our own, sheds light on the riddle of our common identity. The HBO movie based on her life, "Temple Grandin", aired to great acclaim--with a cast including Claire Danes as Temple Grandin, Julia Ormond, Catherine O'Hara, and David Strathairn. 304 pages. 2010.
