The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: April 2013

Duration: 8 hours 10 minutes


THE AUTISTIC BRAIN is the first book by Temple Grandin that will be neither a memoir nor a book on animals. As always, Temple's ability to cut through the jungle of information and make the science clear is evident on every page; her skills as a scientist and her original thinking offer some significant new insights into the understanding of autism. Temple Grandin teaches readers the science of the autistic brain, and with it the history and sociology of autism. By being autistic--by being able to look from the inside out and from the outside in--the author's insights are not just unique, they're groundbreaking. According to Temple, our understanding of autism has been perhaps fundamentally wrong for the past 70 years.
