9781439187104: Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior (Scribner Classics)

A groundbreaking work, Animals in Translation has been unanimously praised by critics and was a bestseller in both hardcover and paperback. Now, it joins the Scribner Classics library, destined to influence American culture for years to come.

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. 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.

Animals in Translation reveals that animals are much smarter than anyone ever imagined, and Grandin, standing at the intersection of autism and animals, offers unparalleled observations and extraordinary ideas about both.

Book Description:

Published in hardcover by Scribner, 2005, 0743247698

From the Back Cover:

"Inspiring . . . Crammed with facts and anecdotes about Temple Grandin's favorite subject: the senses, brains, emotions, and amazing talents of animals."-- The New York Times Book Review

People with autism can often think the way animals think, which puts them in the perfect position to translate “animal talk.” In this groundbreaking book Temple Grandin draws on her own experiences with autism as well as her distinguished career as an animal scientist to deliver an extraordinary message about how animals think, act, and feel. Funny, inspiring, and full of incredible insight, Animals in Translation will forever change the way we look at our fellow creatures.

Animals in Translation is wonderful! The most important book I’ve read in 30 years.”--Patricia McConnell, author of The Other End of the Leash

“Grandin’s focus in Animals in Translation is not on all the ‘normal’ things autistics and animals can’t do but on the unexpected, extraordinary, invaluable things they can.”-- O, the Oprah Magazine
