This is really just "Animals in Translation: Part II". That means that it is full of interesting and illuminating anecdote about dogs, cats, horses, livestock, zoo animals, and animals in the wild. Nothing in this book made me think even for a second that it might be OK to be a carnivore. 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.

I actually skimmed through this book, only reading the chapter about dogs, part of the chapter on cats, and the concluding chapter. I admire Temple Grandin and her work with animals. She has written ... Read full review
