Even though the main thrust of this book is geared to the farmer/producer, there is also valuable information for pet owners and a very interesting section on zoos and zoo animals. Something for everyone who has animals or works with them. For pet owners, the author points out that pets left alone all day with no companionship or stimulation are really being abused. In her opinion, livestock raised for slaughter are better off than pets left alone all the time because their quality of life is better, more active, more stimulating. Hopefully books like Temple Grandin's will open all our eyes and inspire us to be more thoughtful and kinder in our dealings with the animals in our lives. This is an excellent and thought-provoking work.

Not as engaging as Animals in Translation--less about autism and how she relates to animals and more on how specific animals should be treated.

I did enjoy this book quite a bit - particularly the chapters on dogs, cats, wildlife and zoos. But, overall, I found it to be a bit repetitive of the information previously presented in _Animals in Translation_. It wasn't bad, or boring, just a little less "meaty" than _Animals in Translation_. I really liked how she went further into what makes a wolf pack, and the domestication of the wolf. All in all, it was quite interesting.

Anyone who has horses, dogs, cats, cattle, etc. should read this book. Temple Grandin is an incredible researcher who views the world through the animal's eyes. A CSU professor Grandin has valuable insights for every horse owner.
