One of the most amazing stories I have heard over the last number of years is that of Temple Grandin. As a child, she did not speak until she was four. Doctor’s correctly diagnosed her as being ... Read full review

So much information, but written in a style that you can understand, use, and hear as Temple's writing all at the same time. I liked finding out about different animals, what Temple is doing now with ... Read full review

I really enjoyed this, although much of the practical applications of the book don't really apply to my life. As much as I want for pigs, cows, chickens, and horses to be treated well, I don't have ... Read full review

If you think that your dog is crazy, it might be you and not the dog. Animals have their own characteristics and personalities. This is a good book, written for the the individual who would like to get to know their pet. ANIMALS DO MAKE US HUMAN. A great book to give as a gift.

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.
