Reviews

If the animals on America's factory farms got together to award an Animal Nobel Peace Prize, they would surely give it to Temple Grandin.  Who else has brought her combination of deep empathy  and hard-headed engineering know-how to their lot?  "Humane Livestock Handling" will make that know-how more widely available, and few things could do more to improve the lot of these animals.  -Michael Pollan
