Book about Autism
Steve, she didn't overcome autism (that's not possible), but she has found ways to cope to be as successful as she is. And she has made her special interest (obsession, really) into her profession. The only autistic people who ever really make it in the workplace are the ones that are able to turn their special interest into their profession. Otherwise failure is almost guaranteed.
Unfortunately, Temple Grandin is no more capable of understanding how other people think than most autistics (no theory of mind). She thinks that ALL autistic people think just like her. But we are all individuals, and so she is wrong on that one. Still, I hear it's a great book.
German citizen, married to a Canadian for 28 years, four daughters, one son, eight grandchildren (and one on the way).
