A true story that is both uniquely moving and exceptionally inspiring, Emergence is the first-hand account of a courageous autistic woman who beat the odds and cured herself. As a child, Temple Grandin was forced to leave her "normal" school and enroll in a school for autistic children. This searingly honest account captures the isolation and fears suffered by autistics and their families and the quiet strength of one woman who insisted on a miracle.

I have to object to the statement that Temple Grandin "cured herself". She is still and always will be autistic. What she did was learn how to succeed in a career where she could use her strengths, including her autistic characteristics.

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