Temple Grandin Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals

In her groundbreaking and bestselling book Animals in Translation, Temple Grandin drew on her own experience with autism as well as her distinguished career as an animal scientist to deliver extraordinary insights into how animals think, act, and feel. Grandin discusses her new book Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals, in which she builds on those insights to show us how to give our animals the best and happiest life-on their terms, not ours. It’s usually easy to pinpoint the cause of physical pain in animals, but to know what is causing them emotional distress is much harder. Drawing on the latest research and her own work, Grandin identifies the core emotional needs of animals. Then she explains how to fulfill them for dogs and cats, horses, farm animals, and zoo animals.

($26.00) Houghton Mifflin ISBN #0-15-101489-2. You can visit Temple Grandin’s official web site as well.
