Thinking in Pictures: My Life with AutismThinking in Pictures: My Life with Autism by Temple Grandin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am so grateful that I finally got around to reading this book. It was eye-opening to be able to see inside the mind of Temple Grandin. It was interesting to learn more about autism and how it affects those who think in that way. With the differences, I was very surprised with how much I felt in common with the author. Oh, I’m not nearly as intelligent as Ms, Grandin, but her sensitivities to touch, and sound and crowds, her visual thinking, well, I saw my own ways of dealing with the same. I almost wanted to see if I would find a hug-machine for myself. But I do enjoy hugs from family and friends. I will find myself having anxiety attacks in a crowd or with too much noise. Even the sound of the fan or the refrigerator will drive me nuts.

Mercy. That was what I felt from Ms. Grandin. I love how much care she gives to the animals doomed to be slaughtered. Outside of wishing everyone could be vegetarians, the next best thing is that we learn to treat our fellow beings on this Earth with humane care.

This copy was the paperback and the print was very hard for me to read. But since it was a BookCrossing copy I wanted to be able to pass it on to others. This is BCID 395-7719867. I will send it on to others in our group.
