"Animals in Translation" is the culmination of Temple Grandin's extraordinary life's work, drawing upon the latest research, her distinguished career as an animal scientist and her own experience of being autistic. With co-author Catherine Johnson, Grandin argues that while 'normal people' convert experience into words and abstractions, animals and autistics process the world as sensory information - specific pictures, sights and sounds. This difference is the key to understanding how animals see, think and feel. As much a revelation about life with autism as it is about life with animals, "Animals in Translation" explores pain, fear, aggression, love, friendship, communication and learning in a startling book that will change the way you think about animals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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
