I enjoyed Temple Grandin's unique perspective on animal behavior. She is a pragmatist who cares deeply about animal welfare. She weaves in her own experience with autism to help us understand the hypersensitivity animals feel. She gives practical advice about pets and farm animals and interesting information on wild and captive animals. I was at once horrified and impressed by her work with slaughterhouses - she has worked to make slaughter more humane, and interestingly enough, it's the big companies like McDonald's that have effected the most positive change in the industry. After reading this book (and a bunch of others like it) I don't think I can eat meat anymore.
