I re-read parts in a couple of places: the social-history of the times included in passing was fascinating..I will read some of her daughter's books now. I do hear uninformed people often blaming the generic mothers still!

Eustacia Cutler is the mother of Temple Grandin, the famous expert on animal behavior and autism, and the subject of the HBO film that bears her name. Eustacia is also a wonderful writer and insightful autobiographer and researcher. This is a book worth reading if you seek inspiration to be a parent, an advocate for your children, or a better informed person on the subject of autism spectrum disorders. If you are seeking some additional perspective on Temple Grandin's life and on autism, you will not be disappointed. You will be pleasantly surprised at how much more you will get from reading this book.
