Internationally famous for developing more humane experiences for livestock animals, as well as books like Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us More Human, autistic animal scientist Temple Grandin first came into the public eye with this book, originally published in 1996. In this updated, expanded edition, she describes the world she perceives—her highly visual memory and thinking processes function in images like movies, while speech is a "second language"—and how she learned to translate her perceptions and communicate with those around her. Oliver Sachs, who wrote about Grandin in the article "An Anthropologist on Mars," provides the foreword.
