Temple Grandin on HBO

Only a few days ago, I heard of Temple Grandin, the HBO movie, for the first time. Then today, in honor of the movie's launch, NPR reran a January interview with Ms. Grandin.

We don't have cable, so we'll have to get on Netflix's waiting list for the movie. In the meantime, I'll read a couple of her books, which I haven't read before. I'm admittedly more interested in her books about animals than her books about autism, but maybe that will change as I learn more about her.

I'm interested to hear from my readers who have read any of Temple Grandin's books. What did you think? If you've read more than one, are there any you would recommend more than others? No spoilers please, but if you see the movie I'd love to hear your thoughts on that, too.

I've got someone taping the show for me - we don't have cable and I don't as a usual rule see any TV. I've got a review of her latest book coming on Monday.

Temple Grandin came & did a talk at my school, Sterling College in Vermont last November, & toured the campus for the day. It was amazing watching her talk, & hearing how she reached the conclusions she did & how she went about changing things. Her best book, I think, is "Animals Make Us Human", because my college degree is, in part, about exploring more ways (& the whys behind them) of using animals to teach compassion & other things to young people.
