    A new book to be released later this month:

    Title: . . . . . .Different Kinds of Minds, A Guide to Your Brain (Hardcover)
    By:. . . . . . . .Ann D. Koffsky (Adapter), Temple Grandin PhD (Author)
    Release date: November 28, 2023

    Do you like puzzles, coding, and taking things apart? Do you write stories, act in plays, slay at Wordle? The things you are good at are clues to how your brain works. Are you good at math? Working with your hands? Are you a neat freak or a big mess?

    With her knack for making science easy to understand, Temple Grandin explains different types of thinkers: verbal thinkers who are good with language, and visual thinkers who think in pictures and patterns. You will discover all kinds of minds and how we need to work together to create solutions to help solve real-world problems.
