Animals in Translation

by Temple Grandin - £9.99  Bloomsbury Publishing (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747566694 | ISBN 10: 0747566690

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 and enlightening book.

"This magisterial book on animal behaviour is unique and, for me, is gripping reading... fascianting... Grandin is the modern day Doctor Doolittle. We own 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)
