Thinking in Pictures


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. Hide synopsis

An insight into autism

by Judith L on Sep 8, 2011

Temple Grandin is a fascinating and very intelligent woman - this book dispels some of the myths surrounding autism and shows how her mind works in the strangest ways - often coming up with much better solutions to problems than conventional thinkers can manage.

Thinking in Pictures

by John V on Mar 17, 2011

"Thinking" tells us the difference between autistic and what we consider normal. There are a lot of things people who are not in the autistic spectrum need to be aware of. You have to read this book. It is a great source of information from a woman who is autistic.
