              Nur einer hochbegabten Autistin wie Temple Grandin konnte es gelingen, das Verhalten von Tieren so genau zu beobachten und zu analysieren, dass sie mehr uber sie verstand als die meisten anderen Menschen. Denn Tiere sind uns ahnlich, viel mehr, als wir bislang dachten. Temple Gra...ndin gehort zu den wenigen Autisten, denen es gelang, sich die Welt der Sprache zunutze zu machen, um ihre Welt der Farben, Bilder und Filme anderen zuganglich zu machen. Sie machte eine beispiellose Karriere und gilt heute als eine der weltweit bedeutendsten Tierpsychologinnen. Denn sie kann die Welt so sehen, wie es Tiere tun. Und deshalb kann sie das Verhalten, die Begabungen und Angste von Tieren verstehen und so den Umgang mit ihnen verbessern helfen. Immer wieder findet Temple Grandin bestatigt, wie sehr ihre eigene Wahrnehmung derjenigen von Tieren ahnelt. In ihrem Bewusstsein und ihrem Gedachtnis sind nur Bilder, die sie fur die Aussenwelt in Worte ubersetzt. Und sie kann Gedanken und Gefuhle von Tieren in unsere Sprache ubersetzen. Damit revolutioniert sie unser Verstandnis von Tieren

              The mystery of sacrifice is that there is no sacrifice. Two sisters caught in their parents misdeeds; a shared look; a gift; a strangely dependent relationship; a dystopian future; a man struggling with addiction. Where there is love between people, there is sacrifice. In The Mys...tery of Sacrifice, Catherine Johnson takes the reader through relationships between people, societies, and beliefs, and the choices that define them. With a take on life filtered through a unique set of experiences and thought traditions, her writings share insight into a mind at once introspective and distinctively outward-looking, showing us her overwhelming love of life and everything in it. If human beings are flawed, compassion and love would be our biggest faults. Johnson explores the emotion joy, in ways anything but the pure unadulterated kind, through complex characters reflected in our own humanity. An abused teenaged girl is vulnerable as she is strong to another child figure. A gay religious devotee releases himself from conviction. The series of poems, prose, short stories and even songs, shows Johnson's talent and maturity in writing her first book. The collection, intended to be read in order, unwraps Johnson's developing style but it is her short stories, in which characters are played out in depth, that captures the ethos of being human. Her words will make you read, stop and reflect. -Josephine Lim, news.com

              Temple Grandin's Animals in Translation speaks in the clear voice of a woman who emerged from the other side of autism, bringing with her an extraordinary message about how animals think and feel.Temple's professional training as an animal scientist and her history as a person wi...th autism have given her a perspective like that of no other expert in the field. Standing at the intersection of autism and animals, she offers unparalleled observations and groundbreaking ideas about both.Autistic people can often think the way animals think -- in fact, Grandin and co-author Catherine Johnson see autism as a kind of way station on the road from animals to humans -- putting autistic people in the perfect position to translate animal talk. Temple is a faithful guide into their world, exploring animal pain, fear, aggression, love, friendship, communication, learning, and, yes, even animal genius. Not only are animals much smarter than anyone ever imagined, in some cases animals are out-and-out brilliant.The sweep of Animals in Translation is immense, merging an animal scientist's thirty years of study with her keen perceptions as a person with autism -- Temple sees what others cannot.Among its provocative ideas, the book: argues that language is not a requirement for consciousness -- and that animals do have consciousness applies the autism theory of hyper-specificity to animals, showing that animals and autistic people are so sensitive to detail that they can't see the forest for the trees -- a talent as well as a deficit explores the interpreter in the normal human brain that filters out detail, leaving people blind to much of the reality that surrounds them -- a reality animals and autistic people see, sometimes all too clearly explains how animals have superhuman skills: animals have animal genius compares animals to autistic savants, declaring that animals may in fact be autistic savants, with special forms of genius that normal people do not possess and sometimes cannot

              Even the strongest of families aren't immune to malice, betrayal, and deceit. Wealthy and loving, the Pierson family is delighted to celebrate the marriage of handsome Paul Pierson and his wife, Pamela. Everyone rejoices that Paul has finally recovered from the tragic loss of his... beloved first wife, and look forward to Paul and Pamela's new life together. But while Paul's family longs for his happiness, they are soon expressing concern about his beautiful bride. As the strain between siblings and spouses worsens, the Piersons discover that neither their money nor their considerable influence can keep the family safe from one woman's malicious intent. When the true nature of this family member is revealed, each of the Piersons are confronted with the quandary of human conduct and moral responsibility. Shades of Darkness, Shades of Grace is a compelling story of the classic struggle between good and evil, and the violent undercurrent running beneath the illusory serenity of a close-knit Midwestern family. "Shades of Darkness, Shades of Grace explores the tightrope families' walk when one of their own is constantly under attack, and they're asked to retreat. An engrossing drama of frustration, human conduct, and murder." -Robin Van Auken, author of Play Ball! The Story of Little League Baseball
