Dr Temple Grandin can talk to the animals; she has a legendary ability to read the animal mind and understand animal behaviour when no-one else can. But this is no feat of telepathy; her explanation is simple – she is convinced she experiences the world much as an animal does, and it is all down to her autistic brain. Labelled ‘retarded’ at three years old, she didn’t learn to speak until she was five, but at nearly 60 she is an associate professor of animal science and one of the most famous people with autism on the planet. This is the intimate story of Temple’s journey from despair to worldwide fame.
