Read full description of the books The Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships: Decoding Social Mysteries Through the Unique Perspectives of Autism:I think I've read most, if not all, of Temple Grandin's books and a lot of her papers too. I did prefer her writing before she became the 'official' voice of autism by autistic people.
This book was just so weird. To have social rules dissected by those who have learned them and not absorbed them innately is a bit like having an alien come down and start describing our society to us. I had wanted to read the book because I find difficulty getting on with people and reading social clues and wonder if I might be on the Asperger's ladder (but apparently not, after doing various psychological quizzes, I think I'm just socially inept). Anyway, this book gave me no pointers and the structure of two people writing alternately in a very didactic manner led me to give it up. The book isn't unreadable, its just not enjoyable.
My Mum died the week I was reading this. Life really is too short to plough on with unnecessary things that aren't enjoyable.
Read information about the authorTemple Grandin, Ph.D., didn't talk until she was three and a half years old, communicating her frustration instead by screaming, peeping, and humming. In 1950, she was diagnosed with autism and her parents were told she should be institutionalized. She tells her story of "groping her way from the far side of darkness" in her book Emergence: Labeled Autistic, a book which stunned the world because, until its publication, most professionals and parents assumed that an autism diagnosis was virtually a death sentence to achievement or productivity in life.
Even though she was considered "weird" in her young school years, she eventually found a mentor, who recognized her interests and abilities. Dr. Grandin later developed her talents into a successful career as a livestock-handling equipment designer, one of very few in the world. She has now designed the facilities in which half the cattle are handled in the United States, consulting for firms such as Burger King, McDonald's, Swift, and others.
Dr. Grandin presently works as a Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University. She also speaks around the world on both autism and cattle handling.
