Inarguably, the most famous, successful person with autism in the world today, Temple Grandin was a non-verbal, often-violent child in the 50s. Her mother, Eustacia Cutler raised Temple when her child's condition was classified as "infant schizophrenia," brought on by "frigid mothering." The common remedy was to warehouse those diagnosed in institutions for the retarded. Eustacia's story is a strikingly honest story of myth and reality, angst and guilt, family and society. Eustacia's literary masterpiece reaches out to a much larger community than the one directly affected by the epidemic growth of autism today. "A magnificent accomplishment!"
