Temple Grandin reports from the forefront of autism science, bringing her singular perspective to a thrilling journey into the heart of the autism revolution. Weaving her own experience with remarkable new discoveries, Grandin introduces the neuroimaging advances and genetic research that link brain science to behavior, even sharing her own brain scan to show us which anomalies might explain common symptoms. We meet the scientists and self-advocates who are exploring innovative theories of what causes autism and how we can diagnose and best treat it. Grandin also highlights long-ignored sensory problems and the transformative effects we can have by treating autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagnosis. Most exciting, she argues that raising and educating kids on the spectrum isn't just a matter of focusing on their weaknesses; in the science that reveals their long-overlooked strengths she shows us new ways to foster their unique contributions.

Overall this book was worth listening to. I found it to be informative and confirming. I did find it a bit tedious around chapter 6 or 7 because of the depth of detail. There was a section after this that I found to be more about the author's pet peeve than about plain fact. I appreciate how she pointed out her mistakes in earlier writings from Thinking in Pictures. I as well as the previous commenter did not really like the narrator. Their inflections were a little too overdone at times and had small delays which made me wonder if this person was a professional reader or not.
