Temple Grandin: How the Girl Who Loved Cows Embraced Autism and Changed the World by Sy Montgomery

Temple Grandin was diagnosed with autism when she was 3-years-old. Today she’s a renowned scientist and professor of animal science who revolutionized the livestock industry with her cruelty-free cattle facilities designs.

(We love the movie starring Claire Danes, too!)
