    DescriptionTemple Grandin was diagnosed as being autistic at the age of three. An intelligent child with a thirst for knowledge, but unable to properly express herself or control her own behavior, Temple struggled through grade school. Eventually, her disruptive behavior forced her expulsion from a "normal" school and enrollment at a school for autistic children. There Temple fared better, but she began to suffer from "nerve attacks." Through working at the school's farm, Temple learned about cattle presses, which are used to calm nervous livestock. After building her own press, Temple Grandin used it to successfully control her nerve attacks, and for all intents and purposes, cure her autism. Reading this book is an adventure. There is no other book like it-even remotely like it. The reason is simple. The author has a story to tell, a true story, one that is so breathtakingly unusual you will think it to be mere fiction.

    Review quote
    Temple's remarkable story is uniquely valuable in helping us see autism from the 'inside. Her dedication to science and her uncompromising honesty about herself will help scientists understand the links between neurology, empathy, and altruism.' Lorna Jean King, OTR, FAOTA, Center for Neuro-Developmental Studies 'This is the story of a frightening journey which provides the reader with a first hand account of the sense of isolation, hopelessness, and anxiety suffered by autistics and their families.' Del Morrison, Ph.D., Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Clinic
