This is the first piece in the book, an interesting foreword by a famed author on autism, Bernard Rimland. He notes that autism is often over-diagnosed but is certain that Temple Grandin is a genuine autistic, recovered or recovering. He is surprised that Temple has progressed through high school, college, and even graduate school. Rimland and his wife take Temple out to lunch, and Temple's loud, unmodulated voice brings unwanted attention, but when Rimland asks her to speak more quietly, she does not take offense. Rimland notes that Temple has taught herself to deal with her problems and use them to help herself. Rimland is particularly interested in Temple's insights about touch and autistic children. He notes that this is the only book in existence by a recovered autistic and remarks that Temple continues to grow and progress year by year.
