Author
Temple Grandin, Richard Panek
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.

I'm giving this 5 stars for the first part of the book, even though in my opinion the end drags a bit back into her 'tried and true' views on autism. There aren't a lot of books that go into this level of detail about the genetic and neurobiological research as well as looking at self-reports from autistics at all points on the spectrum. A very good starting point for those interested in the science behind autism. She also gives her opinions on the DSM-V and new areas for research.
