Review

"The right brain has created the right book for right now."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"[Grandin's] most insightful work to date . . . The Autistic Brain is something anyone could benefit from reading, and I recommend it to anyone with a personal or professional connection to autism or neurological difference."--John Elder Robison, author of Look Me in the Eye

"The Autistic Brain can both enlighten readers with little exposure to autism and offer hope and compassion to those who live with the condition."--Scientific American

From the Back Cover

[headline] Goodreads Choice Award for Best Nonfiction Book of 2013
The right brain has created the right book for right now. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Temple Grandin may be the most famous person with autism, a condition that affects 1 in 88 children. Since her birth in 1947, our understanding of it has undergone a great transformation, leading to more hope than ever before that we may finally learn the causes of and treatments for autism.
Weaving her own experience with remarkable new discoveries, Grandin introduces the advances in neuroimaging and genetic research that link brain science to behavior, even sharing her own brain scan to show which anomalies might explain common symptoms. Most excitingly, she argues that raising and educating kids on the autism spectrum must focus on their long-overlooked strengths to foster their unique contributions. The Autistic Brain brings Grandin s singular perspective into the heart of the autism revolution.
"[Grandin s] most insightful work to date . . . The Autistic Brain is something anyone could benefit from reading, and I recommend it to anyone with a personal or professional connection to autism or neurological difference." John Elder Robison, author of Look Me in the Eye
"The Autistic Brain can both enlighten readers with little exposure to autism and offer hope and compassion to those who live with the condition." Scientific American
TEMPLE GRANDIN is one of the world s most accomplished and well-known adults with autism. She is a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and the author of several best-selling books, which have sold more than a million copies. The HBO movie based on her life received seven Emmy Awards. She lives in Fort Collins, Colorado.
RICHARD PANEK is the prize-winning author of The 4 Percent Universe and the recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship in science writing. His books have been translated into sixteen languages. He lives in New York City.
