"Neurology has Oliver Sachs, nature has Annie Dillard, and the lucky animal world has Grandin, a master intermediary between humans and our fellow beasts . . . At once hilarious, fascinating, and just plain weird, Animals is one of those rare books that elicits a 'wow' on almost every page. A."
, Entertainment Weekly

"Inspiring . . . Crammed with facts and anecdotes about Temple Grandin's favorite subject: the senses, brains, emotions, and amazing talents of animals."

, The New York Times Book Review

"Grandin's focus in Animals in Translation is not on all the 'normal' things autistics and animals can't do but on the unexpected, extraordinary, invaluable things they can."
, O, the Oprah Magazine

From the Back Cover

"Inspiring . . . Crammed with facts and anecdotes about Temple Grandin's favorite subject: the senses, brains, emotions, and amazing talents of animals."--"The New York Times Book Review"
People with autism can often think the way animals think, which puts them in the perfect position to translate animal talk. In this groundbreaking book Temple Grandin draws on her own experiences with autism as well as her distinguished career as an animal scientist to deliver an extraordinary message about how animals think, act, and feel. Funny, inspiring, and full of incredible insight, "Animals in Translation" will forever change the way we look at our fellow creatures.
"Animals in Translation" is wonderful! The most important book I ve read in 30 years. --Patricia McConnell, author of "The Other End of the Leash"
Grandin s focus in "Animals in Translation" is not on all the normal things autistics and animals can t do but on the unexpected, extraordinary, invaluable things they can. --"O, the Oprah Magazine"
