Temple Grandin | Animals Make Us Human Recorded 1/15/2009 Listen to MP3 audio
Diagnosed with autism as a child, Temple Grandin, who studied psychology and earned a Ph.D. in Animal Science, has become a philosophical leader of both the animal welfare and autism advocacy movements. A passionate voice for the humane treatment of animals, her professional and popular writing and research on animal behavior has revolutionized the treatment of farm animals. Now, with Animals Make Us Human, Dr. Grandin challenges assumptions about animal contentment and shows humans how to give their animal companions the best and happiest life on their terms, not ours.
