Animals in Translation is a difficult book to define, there are so many subjects that are intertwined in it. It isn't just about autism, neurology, language, or animals; all of these subjects (as well as others) are related to each other and the seamless writing shows these connections so clearly you'll wonder how you never made the connection yourself.
While technically a scientific book, this isn't a book limited to the scientific community. Anyone can pick up this book and understand it without getting a migraine or needing a brainiac translator. It almost reads like a conversation you are having with your own renowned scientist friend.
Anyone with even the slightest interest in animals, neurology, or just about being human will find something to enjoy in this book. Temple Grandin shows how connected everything in our world really is with personal stories, scientific studies, and insight few people (let alone those in her position of influence) possess.
