Really interesting parts about behavioral science. But after a while feels like the book would be more interesting for a farmer than a consumer like myself.

Still, this was a decent follow-on to Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. ( )

Any Temple Grandin book is worth reading to open up your mind to different ways of thinking and how you may treat others with different 'learning' abilities. ( )

She starts by describing the basic animal emotions, then describes the primary emotions for each animal throughout the book.

I bought this book for the chapters on Cat & Dogs. Those chapters were meaningful. The chapters in the middle I didn’t relate to so much, but the chapters at the end really caught my interest.

Contents
1. What do animals need?
2. A dog’s live
3. Cats
4. Horses
5. Cows
6. Pigs
7. Chickens and other poultry
8. Wildlife
9. Zoos
Afterward: Why do I still work for the industry?

Some statements that caught my interest:

“Don’t go toward a dangerous dog face to face, and never make eye contact. Primate like face-to-face introductions; dogs don’t.” (Page 58 of 340)

In the chapter on horses: “Even when you don't get into a vicious cycle, negative reinforcement often has a down side. the most important drawback is that fear is a very painful emotion for all animals, and you don’t want to base your relationship with an animal on fear, especially not with a high-fear prey animal.” (Page 128)

People are slow learners
“Even when plants know they’re losing money by shocking and yelling at the animals, they still do it. In one slaughter plant I documented a $500 to $1,000 savings per day after I had trained employees to handle cattle quietly, but when I left, workers quickly went back to their old rough ways. ... why do people keep doing it?” (Page 165)

“Preventing rough handling is like controlling speeding on the highways. You need constant measurement and enforcement. I have observed that some people enjoy abusing animals. Those people shouldn’t be working with animals at all.” (Page 171)

“Animals like novelty if they can choose to investigate it; they fear novelty if you shove it in their faces.” (Page 287) ( )

Grandin's style is awkwardly straightforward and over-explanatory, but her subject is fascinating. It starts out softly by examining what makes dogs and cats happy, then becomes more disturbing as she examines the emotional behaviors of food and zoo animals. She may sound dispassionate, but how much she does care comes through. ( )

I started Animals Make Us Human a few days ago and just finished it up! I enjoyed it a lot. It's always nice to gain some insight into what animals are thinking and how they work. The focus of this book specifically was to talk about the emotional welfare of various animals. There was a good mix of animals to learn about, from pets to animals in the slaughter industry to zoos. Grandin's point of view is unique and offers a lot to think about. She makes it clear that things aren't always as black-and-white as we think they may be. I felt like I learned a lot in reading this and would absolutely recommend it to others ( )
