really liked it

An eye-opening book, in so many ways. I'm not much of an animal person, but Grandin changed my "neutral"/"eh" stance about fish, fowl, and beasts.

I must admit, much of my feelings about animals have been colored by fear. I've never known how to read, respond, or connect to animals. I've also had a hard time understanding people who connect with animals, too. Grandin helped me to understand animals (and the humans who love them!) in a way that made them a lot less mysterious.

Grandin is smart and has a curious, startling, insightful mind. I liked watching her whizz from point A to Z in her book.

A very stimulating read.

"Animals in Translation" made me realize that I *miss* a lot of things in the world. The book reminded me that there is a natural world that I can connect to, and that there are many ways of doing so.
