Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Do you think in pictures, patterns or words?

In a world engineered for the verbal thinker, those of us with a visual brain can often be overlooked and underestimated. In this landmark book, international bestselling author and activist Temple Grandin transforms our understanding of how our brains are wired differently.

Bringing together cutting-edge research and her own experience as a visual thinker, Grandin reveals a ground-breaking new approach to revolutionizing modern structures such as education, health and media so that they equally serve people with all kinds of minds. Visual Thinking is a perspective shifting book that will open our eyes to the value of a life in picture.

Critic reviews

"Grandin has helped us understand autism not just as a phenomenon, but as a different and coherent mode of existence that otherwise confounds us." (The New York Times )

"A powerful and provocative testament to the diverse coalition of minds we'll need to face the mounting challenges of the twenty-first century." (Steve Silberman, bestselling author of NeuroTribes)

Very Good 👍

Temple Grandin has put together an excellent book on the benefits of acknowledging and nurturing visual thinkers for the improvement and growth of our societies.

I gave this book 4 stars as, while the story and narration were excellent, the message alas spanned for longer than needed in my opinion.

brilliant 👏

communicates a very important message for the future structure of career paths and education. People tend to generalise and assume everyone, everywhere thinks, learns and experiences the world in the same way. this is not so, and its important that education programs are geared towards producing results and necessary building blocks to career success. brilliant book, one of her best!
