Whether you raise cattle for a living, own pets, or simply want to enjoy a thoroughly entertaining and extremely interesting guided tour into the psychology of animals, you are sure to enjoy Animals In Translation. It's one of my all-time favorite books!
Dr. Temple Grandin is listed in the Time 100 list as one of the hundred most influential people in the world, thanks to her research, writing, lectures, and engineering in the fields of animal behavior, animal welfare, and autism.
Her work has been instrumental in redesigning livestock handling equipment to be both more efficient and more humane. A large majority of all US slaughter facilities are now designed based on her designs and recommendations. Her autism gives her a unique insight into how cattle and other animals perceive the world and this book is a fantastic opportunity to share in some of her insights.
From the Back Cover: People with autism can often think the way animals think, which puts them in the perfect position to translate "animal talk." In this groundbreaking book, Temple Grandin draws on her own experiences with autism as well as her distinguished career as an animal scientist to deliver an extraordinary message about how animals think, act, and feel. Funny, informative, and full of incredible insight, Animals in Translation will forever change the way we look at our fellow creatures.
