Temple Grandin is autistic, and it has given her insights about how animals percieve the world. It's quite interesting, knowing her own challenges have given her a unique view. As others have said, this is not a sentimental homage to animals, it is practical and well described. She is clear when she is stating her opinion, the findings of her research and the research of others. It results in a unique blend of common speech and collegiate dissertation that is sometimes repetitive. I think her first book, Animals in Translation, was better, but it's still a good read for anyone with an interest in trying to understand more about animals.

This was an absolutely fascinating book. I have bought 4 print copies to give to friends, and to have in my own personal library. Temple points out the obvious, and the not so obvious. She brings to light some fascinating discoveries about wolves and how they relate to our beloved dogs, as well as pointing out how we can make our canine family members more comfortable. I have learned things I about the agricultural industry that everyone should know - though few of us do, and many of the points she brings up can make you think twice about how you react to all the animals and people around you.
