Temple Grandin, living with autism, is perhaps unique in her ability to describe how her mind works. Not only that, but she is well know for how she's turned her way of thinkingito personal advantage.

Read the book. She did come from a financially rich family (quite possibly with 2 au pairs) and was educated in private boarding schools. So what?

She can be quite astute, particularly about less-than-scrupulous physicians' modus operandi.

I thought she came from a financially rich family with 2 au pares, and was educated in a private boarding school.
