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.

Temple Grandin is my idol and the reason I specified in Animal Behavior with my Animal Science major as an undergrad. This book was really good (and eye opening at times). What she has done for the ... Read full review
