    " Excellent followup to Animals in Translation. In this book, Temple Grandin writes on how we can better the lives of our domesticated animals by acknowledging their own uniqueness and studying their behavior in a natural environment. The authors categorizes the primary mental states for animals (yes, we humans fit in here too) into Fear, Rage, Panic, Seeking, and Play, then shows how these states operate for each animal. Dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, and chickens all gte their own chapters while there are two last chapters on wildlife and zoos. There are lots of revelations throughout. I thought the cat chapter was disappointing. It appears we know very little about cats which is why this chapter relies on personal anecdote more that field research. Still the book is a must read for anyone who owns an animal. "

    " Such an interesting take on the reasons animals behave the way they do and how we can help them live better. I will admit I didn't read every word. I skimmed the chapters on horses, cows, pigs, and chickens, because even though I have poultry (2 ducks and 3 chickens), Dr. Grandin writes about chickens in an industrial setting. Mine already have covered nest boxes and lots of space to roam and engage their seeking behaviors so I think they're pretty happy. Lots of good info to help my understand my dog and my cat better, though. "

    " Temple Grandin's new book is amazing. I bought it with my Kindle and devoured it - but when I tried to go back and access things I'd read earlier, well, I finally went to the bookstore and just bought the hardcover book. This lady is a one-woman revolution and she has changed life on this planet for the better in so many ways. I can't recommend this book highly enough. "

    " I read this awhile ago so cannot comment in detail about it, except that it created interest in finding out more about human-animal communication. "
