Editorial Reviews

Review

Animals in Translation is vintage Grandin; she just gets better and better. Each page is crystal-clear, conceptually profound, and empirically fascinating. Whether the reader is a cattle rancher looking for guidance in managing animals in a non-stressful way, or a layperson interested in what is going on behind the eyes of a pet, Grandin's work is the guidebook of choice for what, to most of us, is terra incognita. Her wit, crisp clear style, and unique voice synthesizing the most up-to-date scientific knowledge with voluminous personal experience make this book a pleasure to read, and a joy to learn from.

-- Bernard E. Rollin, Colorado State University Distinguished Professor, and Professor of Philosophy, of Biomedical Sciences, and of Animal Sciences

From the Back Cover

"Inspiring . . . Crammed with facts and anecdotes about Temple Grandin's favorite subject: the senses, brains, emotions, and amazing talents of animals."--"The New York Times Book Review"
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, inspiring, and full of incredible insight, "Animals in Translation" will forever change the way we look at our fellow creatures.
"Animals in Translation" is wonderful! The most important book I ve read in 30 years. --Patricia McConnell, author of "The Other End of the Leash"
Grandin s focus in "Animals in Translation" is not on all the normal things autistics and animals can t do but on the unexpected, extraordinary, invaluable things they can. --"O, the Oprah Magazine"
"
