Description
In her groundbreaking book Animals in Translation (also co-written with Catherine Johnson), Temple Grandin drew on her own experience with autism as well as her decades as an animal scientist to deliver extraordinary insights into how animals think, act, and feel. Here she builds on those insights to show us how to give our animals the best and happiest life possible—on their terms, not ours. Knowing what causes animals physical pain is usually easy, but pinpointing emotional distress is much harder. Grandin identifies the core emotional needs of animals and then explains how to fulfill the specific needs of dogs and cats, horses, farm animals, zoo animals, and even wildlife. Whether it's how to make the healthiest environment for the dog you must leave alone most of the day, how to keep pigs from being bored, or how to know if the lion pacing in the zoo is miserable or just exercising, Grandin challenges assumptions about animal contentment and seeks to honor our bond with our fellow creatures.

"Picking up where Animals in Translation left off, Grandin provides pet owners, farmers, livestock managers, and zoo keepers with concrete suggestions for improving the lives of the animals in their care. But 'don't let the book's snuggly title fool you,' declares the Cleveland Plain Dealer. 'Grandin is primarily a scientist, and no Marley romps through these pages.' There aren't any commandments to readers to lay down their forks, either: Grandin believes it is entirely ethical for humans to use animals commercially, provided they are treated with compassion and respect. Unsentimental and down-to-earth, Grandin's inspiring and insightful book is a treasure trove of fascinating facts and anecdotes, though some of the chapters on factory farming may be disturbing. Critics agree that 'we're lucky to have Temple Grandin' (NYTimes)."—Bookmarks Magazine
