From Library Journal:

If autism had a rock star, it would be Grandin. Diagnosed with autism when little was known about the condition, Grandin went on to earn a Ph.D., become an expert on the humane treatment of livestock, and write prominent autobiographical works on autism (e.g., Thinking in Pictures). This collection of articles from Autism Asperger's Digest that draw heavily from her own life provides snippets of her views on the condition. The columns are organized by theme, each with a new introductory section written by Grandin. Notable sections include labels and diagnoses, education (especially harnessing a child's special talent), and the social world of autism. She distinguishes nicely traits from autism vs. those that are unacceptable from any child. While the book has a great deal to offer, it suffers from repetition across chapters. These articles do not present information in an in-depth manner, but they provide a nice overview from a prominent member of the autism community. A book like this might be more accessible to readers than some of the meatier volumes on autism. Recommended for public libraries.--Corey Seeman, Kresge Business Administration Lib., Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor (c) Copyright 2010.
