    Temple Grandin (born August 29, 1947) is an American doctor of animal science and professor at Colorado State University, bestselling author, and consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior. As a person with high functioning autism, Grandin is also widely noted for her work in autism advocacy and is the inventor of the hug machine designed to calm hypersensitive persons.

    Grandin is listed in the 2010 TIME 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world in the category “Heroes”

    Tony Attwood (born 9 February 1952,Birmingham, England) is an English Psychologist who lives in Queensland, Australia and is an author of several bestselling books on Asperger's Syndrome. He speaks on autism and Asperger's Syndrome around the world.

    His book, Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals has now been translated into 20 languages.

    Attwood also has a clinical practice at his diagnostic and treatment clinic for children and adults with Asperger’s Syndrome, in Brisbane, begun in 1992.

    This book is a compilation of success stories from adults with autism and Asperger's Syndrome. Each shares what helped them during their childhood and young lives that made them the independant adults they are today.
    One of the most important missions Temple Grandin has is making sure people with autism and Asperger's make something of their lives. As Temple says quite bluntly, "Being on Social Security is NOT a job choice."

    These unique individuals often have great potential in parts of their minds that neurotypicals never even start to tap. This needs to be shared with the world.

    However, in order to share their hidden genius, they have to overcome many social obstacles. The point of this groundbreaking work is - it is possible, and it is WORTH it. Let these crusaders, handpicked by Temple herself, show how it can be done.

    Let this work by Dr. Temple Grandin inspire you to your true potential. You will soon see why it means so much to her.
