Read from November 16 to 20, 2010

Temple Grandin is an autism advocate, a believer in a quality life for agricultural animals and a designer of livestock handling facilities in the United States and other countries. Temple earned her Ph.D. in animal science from the University of Illinois and is presently a professor of Animal Science at the University of Colorado. In this book (Animals In Translation . . .) Temple combines autism with how animals think and feel. Some of the topics she addresses are animal feelings, how they perceive the world, pain, learning and how animals think. Some of the animals she addresses in the book are dogs, cats, cattle, horses and even birds. Definitely an interesting read, especially if you are interested in animals, however, I did “skim” over a lot of the book picking out subjects that were the most interesting to me. If you are interested in learning more about Temple Grandin she has a website: www.templegrandin.com
