    From renowned scientist and animal welfare advocate Temple Grandin, this groundbreaking book is a clarion call to awareness of the inner lives of humankind's far-too-often mistreated and neglected companions. Based on research spanning over 30 years, these stunning insights into the very real emotions and thoughts of animals are sure to be a source of fascination and inspiration.

    Story

    I love Temple Grandin's writing. She's just one of those people who makes fascinating observations of the world. Her curatorial sense of what's interesting and worthy to share is spot on. For example: wolves in the wild are not, in spite of everything we hear, pack animals. Wolves prefer to live in nuclear families.

    That being said, Animals in Translation is the better of her two animal books. (She also wrote Thinking in Pictures about autism.) AMUH is more of a guide about specific animals. She goes through them in sequence: dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, chickens. If you're looking for a manual with specifics for your pet, or if you're a professional who works with animals, this is the more appropriate book. If you're more curious for insights into animal behavior and what it can teach us about our own humanity, Animals in Translation is definitely the place to start. If you like that, this book is enjoyable too, but understand that it's more of a how-to manual for interacting with different types of animals, and packs fewer fascinating new ideas per hour than AiT.
