Animals in Translation: The Woman Who Thinks Like a Cow
(Paperback, English)
Autoren: Temple Grandin und Catherine Johnson

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.
