Description
People with autism can often think the way animals think, posits Temple Grandin, an animal sciences professor who was diagnosed with autism as a child. In this groundbreaking book about animal behavior, perception, and interspecies communication, Grandin explores how animals think, act, and feel, and illuminates the parallels and differences in humans. The New York Times Book Review found the book "inspiring ... crammed with facts and anecdotes about Temple Grandin's favorite subject: the sense, brains, emotions, and amazing talents of animals."

"Grandin makes an intriguing argument that, psychologically, animals and autistic people have a great deal in common—and that both have mental abilities typically underestimated by normal people.... Delving into animal emotion, aggression and suffering, Grandin gives tips that may be useful for caretakers of pets and farm animals. She also notes that humans seem to need, and thrive on, the proximity of animals. Indeed, she states provocatively, in the process of becoming human we gave up something primal, and being around animals helps us get a measure of that back."—Scientific American
