Miranda Robertson, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by Miranda Robertson)
This is definitely my favorite of Temple Grandin's books. It's a beautiful combination of scientific studies and practical observation working to answer the question; what does a good life for animals look like? Perhaps the greatest thing I took away from this book is that there IS a difference between good and bad factory farms, and that animals CAN be humanely raised and slaughtered if the right systems are in place. This is a distinction I didn't even know existed and it's changed how I think about my pets, the zoos I visit, and the food I eat. Can't wait to get her next book!

This fascinating book has a lot of insights into the higher picture of how behavior works in animals, and into the devilish details of dogs, cats, horses, cows, pigs, and chickens. It also covers zoos and wildlife more generally though with specific anecdotes. The most mind blowing moments happen when you realize, or Temple Grandin points out, that understanding humanity has an awful lot in common with animal husbandry. This is easily in my list of top 5 nonfiction books ever read.
