Hello, I am 15, and I am, personally, living with Asperger's Syndrome (a form of Autism). My mother has been borrowing this book from her friend for quite some time now, but I never actually picked it up and looked at it until now. (To be honest I was never really that interested... there are so many screwed-up learning disabilities these days that I just didn't really care to know more about.) My mother was asking me if I "think in pictures", but she couldn't really explain it to me (because she wasn't that way herself). I was like, "huh?!?!?" because she didn't explain it clear enough for me. She told me she found it in this book. I originally looked in it to find out what she was talking about, and I became so fascinated by everything this author (who was living with Autism herself) had to say. It was almost as if she WAS me - everything she wrote I could totally connect with! She seemed to know me (and others like me) so well it was scary! I think a book like this can help others learn more about Autism. Here is it's information:

THINKING IN PICTURES AND OTHER REPORTS FROM MY LIFE WITH AUTISM
by: Temple Grandin

I am not quite sure where you can look this up (in a library or a good book store, possibly???), because it is borrowed and I do not visit bookstores that frequently, but if you can, that is really good because this book is nothing short of amazing.

Cheers!
