Like no other animal book ever published -Grandin's perspective as an animal scientist and person with autism and her personal history have created a perspective like no other thinker in the field Huge publicity on hardback publication
Temple Grandin is an associate professor of animal science at Colorado State University. She was the subject of the famous New Yorker profile by Oliver Sacks, 'An Anthropologist on Mars'.
'This magisterial book on animal behaviour is unique and, for me, is gripping reading ... fascinating ... Grandin is the modern day Doctor Dolittle who does not have any mystical telepathy with animals - she is simply an extremely experienced, sharp observer and careful scientist who has isolated the principles that govern animal behaviour. We owe her a huge debt for having used her autistic obsession (into animals) and her autistic perception (for accurate details) to teach us so much' Simon Baron-Cohen, Guardian 'This is a wonderful book by an amazing woman - a woman whose understanding of animals is very special. What's more, she not only understands them, she also puts her knowledge to practical use' Desmond Morris, Daily Mail 'She may well have done more for animal welfare than anyone else in recent history ... a cross between a memoir, a layperson's guide to autism and a how-to guide to animal welfare ... we have much to learn' Sunday Telegraph 'An extraordinary book Even if you don't run a farm or own a pet, you have to read this book. It will change the way you think about animals, about autism, about yourself' Mail on Sunday
