Temple Grandin's down to earth views on animal behavior and the stories of various animals.
How to read your animal and teach tricks.
I very much enjoyed Temple Grandin's views on animal behaviour and habits. She was reasonable and explained her views well. I learned from this book and will remember them for a lifetime.
It's somewhere in the middle. Not a favorite genre but it was a great book to listen to, ultimately.
No. She does a nice job. She keeps your interest, even during the slower, less-interesting topics.
It made me think a lot about animal welfare and what I could do to improve things and bring awareness.
Not in this case. I have heard the author speak in person and would have enjoyed the book more if it had been her voice. The reader was not familiar enough with the material to make it sound convincing.
Who else but Temple Grandin could have written this book? This book is her.
Mediocre. Lifeless. Uninformed.
When Temple talks about her childhood. She could have turned out to be a bitter, lonely person. It's amazing what she learned and what we can all learn from her.
Once again, Temple Grandin has taken us into her world in which she understands animals. I will never look at a zoo animal or farm animal the same!! We have friends who are sheepherds - and I have a new appreciation for the excellence of the way they practice their profession!
Interesting book, at times too academic (which is understandable, given the research-basis tone of the subject). Most of the ideas (findings by the author) are not new; the likes of encouragement over punishment, quality of life etc. The final chapter/epilogue seems to be the most important message of the whole book, a pledge for all people (e.g. handlers, pets' owner) to provide animals a better life. It is my deepest hope that human mankind will get this.
Temple Grandin manages to take what is around us and obvious if pointed out and make sense of it. She is brilliant and I learned so much from listening to this book. I will listen to it again and again.
amazing! anyone that has animals as companions, eats animals or is an animal should have this information. i have horses and it is especially relevant to me in my horsemanship endevor.
One cannot finish this book without somehow feeling that Dr. Grandin would make a fun friend. She is so real, unapologetic, and you get the feeling that she would answer honestly if asked, "does this dress make me look fat?" Seriously though, this book and Dr. Grandin's mind is fascinating.
Not always the case, the narration of this particular book is excellent, almost like tepid water. You know it's there and it's doing you good, you just forget about it. That's what narration ought to be.
I hoped to learn how animals make us more human. Instead, I got a book on how animals are treated, especially the ones we eat. I felt purposely mislead by the title and so have a negative view of this book. One star.
I expected this to have been written by another left wing halfwit.NOT AT ALL!Obviously an animal lover with a good understanding of life on Earth for all living creatures.Very enlightening.
