“I hardly know what to say about this remarkable book…. It provides a way to understand the many kinds of sentience, human and animal, that adorn the earth.”—Elizabeth Marshall, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs
“How does a true marvel let you know it has arrived?…It’s hard to imagine even an intellect as towering as Sack’s coming up with perceptions as rare and completely out of left field as Grandin herself does in this mind-blowing book.”—Newsday
“Temple Grandin’s window onto the subjective experience of autism is of value to all of us who hope to gain a deeper understanding of the human mind by exploring the ways in which it responds to the world’s challenges.” —Washington Times
