Summary, etc.: In Calling All Minds, Temple Grandin looks at the science behind inventions and the steps inventors take to create things by tinkering, through trial and error, and sometimes with serendipity. Here, too, are mini histories of the incredible inventors and their patents, which tell the story of innovation. The message is simple: make things. Work with your hands. Roll up your sleeves. Put your thinking cap on and let your imagination run wild. More than just a blueprint for how to build things, in calling all minds, Temple Grandin creates a blueprint for different ways to look at the world.
