Temple Grandin, a person with autism and author of THINKING IN PICTURES, and Catherine Johnson, co-author of SHADOE SYNDROMES, compare the many ways an autistic person's cognition can be used to understand animal behavior. In autistic people, ideas and experiences are not converted into abstract thoughts or language but into the less complicated senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. According to the authors, this is also the case for animals. Narrator Shelly Frasier maintains listener interest throughout. She relates the authors' observations, anecdotes, and scientific research intelligently. Written in easily understood, non-scientific language and read by Frasier with objectivity and respect, this is a fascinating look into the mysterious ways animals perceive the world, using autism as the key to unlock those mysteries.
