Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Calling All Minds:

* "An impassioned call to look at the world in unique ways with plenty of practical advice on how to cultivate a curious, inquiring, imaginative mind." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"After the interview we were all very moved and motivated by Temple. In the beginning, we were all intimidated and we were very nervous. But by the end, Temple made us feel like we weren't even interviewing her, but we were talking to her and having a conversation. . . . We think this is very true and should be shared with everyone. We would definitely recommend this book to people who love being creative and doing projects, but we think everyone should really read it." --Newsday 

"Part personal memoir, part historic study of inventions and biography, and part DIY instructions, this book packs in a lot. The result is an account of inventions and inventors and the thinking that motivates innovation." --School Library Journal

"Mind-expanding." --Booklist 

"A self-styled inventor, Grandin employs a clear, direct style. . . . Grandin offers a nuanced perspective on the qualities of a successful inventor--notably, a sense of wonder and curiosity, careful observation, and the willingness to learn from mistakes." --Publishers Weekly 

About the Author

Temple Grandin is a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and has written numerous books on autism, including the seminal Thinking in Pictures. HBO made an Emmy Award–winning movie about her life and she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2016.
