    ITEM#: 10049161

    Temple Grandin has a Ph.D. in animal science from the University of Illinois, and has designed one third of all the livestock-handling facilities in the United States, and many in other countries. She is currently an associate professor of animal sciences at Colorado State University and a frequent lecturer at autism meetings throughout the country. She lives in Fort Collins, Colorado.
    Temple Grandin, Ph.D., is a gifted animal scientist who has designed one third of all the livestock-handling facilities in the United States. She also lectures widely on autismóbecause Temple Grandin is autistic, a woman who thinks, feels, and experiences the world in ways that are incomprehensible to the rest of us.

    In this unprecedented book, Grandin delivers a report from the country of autism. Writing from the dual perspectives of a scientist and an autistic person, she tells us how that country is experienced by its inhabitants and how she managed to breach its boundaries to function in the outside world. What emerges in Thinking in Pictures is the document of an extraordinary human being, one who, in gracefully and lucidly bridging the gulf between her condition and our own, sheds light on the riddle of our common identity.

      I had looked all over for this movie, as I have an autistic grandson. The price was very high except at Overstock.com. I was so thrilled to receive this DVD at a wonderful price and in such a timely manner, Thank you overstock!!

    • Great Book

      I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who knows or works with someone on the autism spectrum. I have a four year old son with autism and this book has given me an insight into his world. Dr. Grandin does a wonderful job describing what it is like to have autism. I have a much better understanding of my son and had about a dozen "ah-ha" moments just in the first chapter. My relationship with my son has improved tremendously after reading this book.
