Summary

Temple Grandin offers the world yet another great work, an inspiring and informative book that offers both hope and encouragement. In this audiobook, Temple presents the personal success stories of 14 unique individuals that illustrate the extraordinary potential of those on the autism spectrum.

One of Temple’s primary missions is to help people with autism, Asperger’s syndrome, and ADHD tap into their hidden abilities. Temple chose these contributors from a wide variety of different skill sets to show how it can be done.

Each individual tells their own story in their own words about their lives, relationships, and eventual careers. The contributors also share how they dealt with issues they confronted while growing up, such as bullying, making eye contact, and honing social skills.

Different...Not Less shows how, with work, each of the contributors:

  • Found invaluable mentors
  • Learned skills necessary for employment when young
  • Became successfully employed
  • Developed self-confidence
  • Faced the challenges of forming and maintaining relationships
  • (And sometimes) Raised families

Well worth listening to for those on the spectrum.

The audiobook is good for both those on the spectrum and those trying to understand others on it.

Through real people it gives you examples of how you can have a full filling life without making light of the struggles one has.
It presents a powerful message, one that you should never give up and that you should continue to challenge your limits.

you are after all more than your autism never forget that.

the narrator can after a while irritate you but that is a matter of taste and you can listen to the book in parts. but she speaks clearly and I had no issues as a non native English speaker to follow everything being said.

have fun whoever plans to pick this up!

Missed the reader from Thinking inPictures

I love Temple’s books. They are helping me a lot.
Unfortunately I did not love this voice. Not for Temple’s books. Maybe better suited for fiction.
