Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior

"With unique personal insight, experience, and hard science, Animals in Translation is the definitive, groundbreaking work on animal behavior and psychology.

Temple Grandin’s professional training as an animal scientist and her history as a person with autism have given her a perspective like that of no other expert in the field of animal science. Grandin and coauthor Catherine Johnson present their powerful theory that autistic people can often think the way animals think—putting autistic people in the perfect position to translate “animal talk.” Exploring animal pain, fear, aggression, love, friendship, communication, learning, and even animal genius, Grandin is a faithful guide into their world."

Emergence: Labeled Autistic

Temple Grandin was diagnosed as being autistic at the age of three. An intelligent child with a thirst for knowledge, but unable to properly express herself or control her own behavior, Temple struggled through grade school. Eventually, her disruptive behavior forced her expulsion from a "normal" school and enrollment at a school for autistic children. There Temple fared better, but she began to suffer from "nerve attacks." Through working at the school's farm, Temple learned about cattle presses, which are used to calm nervous livestock. After building her own press, Temple Grandin used it to successfully control her nerve attacks, and for all intents and purposes, cure her autism. Reading this book is an adventure. There is no other book like it-even remotely like it. The reason is simple. The author has a story to tell, a true story, one that is so breathtakingly unusual you will think it to be mere fiction.
