'A woman whose understanding of animals is very special. What's more, she not only understands them, she also puts her knowledge to practical use' Desmond Morris 'Admirable and extraordinary' Guardian 'Temple Grandin is a global phenomenon ... For those of us who love animals and want the best for them, Temple Grandin is a beacon of common sense and wisdom' Daily Mail
About the Author
Temple Grandin earned her Ph.D. in animal science from the University of Illinois and went on to become an associate professor at Colorado State University. She is the author of four previous books, including the national bestsellers THINKING IN PICTURES and ANIMALS IN TRANSLATION. Known for her passionate and effective animal advocacy and for explaining to humans how animals think, Grandin revolutionized animal movement systems and spearheaded reform of the quality of life and humaneness of death for the world's farm animals. Through her company, Grandin Livestock Systems, she works with the country's fast food purveyors to monitor the conditions of animal facilities worldwide. She lectures widely on both animal science and autism. Catherine Johnson, PhD, is a writer specialising in neuropsychiatry and the brain. She co-wrote Animals in Translation and served as a trustee of the National Alliance for Autism Research for seven years. She lives with her husband and three sons - two of whom have autism - in New York.

I'm very interested in animal psychology and behaviour, and I'm thinking of retraining to work with animals. This book was very useful and inspiring for that.
I think the only caveat I'd give is that the later chapters are heavily industry-based. Obviously you can apply the basic ideas to your own arrangement. But if you have, say, a pig or three chickens in the garden, the pig and poultry chapters won't be much direct help - I'm still not really sure how to get the cockerel to stop attacking me, though I have some ideas regarding distractions and not provoking fear and rage.
I can't recommend this book highly enough and topics Temple Grandin brings up are worthy of note, and I wholy agree with her especially in the dog section as that is the field I am most interested in.Making Animals Happy: How to Create the Best Life for Pets and Other Animals
The content is excellent and easy to read.
Temple Grandin communicates with us all, raising awareness and empathy without inflicting too much guilt!
Well worth reading and keeping handy for future reference.
