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.
