Read full description of the books Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals:What causes an animal emotional distress? It can be hard to discern, but Temple Grandin, the eccentric and brilliant author of Animals Make Us Human, offers unique insight into the matter. Drawing on the latest research and her own observations, she pinpoints the core emotional needs of animals, whether cats, dogs, horses, farm or zoo animals. Have you ever wondered what the healthiest environment is for a dog who must be left alone most of the day? What does it take to keep a pig from getting horribly bored and jaded? Is that pacing lion exercising or going out of his mind with misery?
Grandin is a master at challenging her reader's assumptions about animals, and improving the bond between us and our fellow creatures.
Read information about the authorTemple Grandin, Ph.D., didn't talk until she was three and a half years old, communicating her frustration instead by screaming, peeping, and humming. In 1950, she was diagnosed with autism and her parents were told she should be institutionalized. She tells her story of "groping her way from the far side of darkness" in her book Emergence: Labeled Autistic, a book which stunned the world because, until its publication, most professionals and parents assumed that an autism diagnosis was virtually a death sentence to achievement or productivity in life.
Even though she was considered "weird" in her young school years, she eventually found a mentor, who recognized her interests and abilities. Dr. Grandin later developed her talents into a successful career as a livestock-handling equipment designer, one of very few in the world. She has now designed the facilities in which half the cattle are handled in the United States, consulting for firms such as Burger King, McDonald's, Swift, and others.
Dr. Grandin presently works as a Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University. She also speaks around the world on both autism and cattle handling.
