Thinking in Pictures is the inspiring, fascinating, and informative account of the life experiences of Temple Grandin. She shares with candidness and detail her interactions with the world around her as a person with autism. Her insight and knowledge on many subjects have made her an expert on animal psychology and thought, and she has used her knowledge to revolutionize humane approaches to livestock handling. Her methods have enabled humane handling techniques to be used in a large percentage of the cattle and swine industry. Her personal experiences, challenges, and her philosophical pondering are interesting and thought provoking. She shares a viewpoint that many of us can never see for ourselves. I enjoyed this book very much and am looking forward to reading more of her expertise in animal psychology in her book "Animals in Translation"
