Do you have another book in your head ready to come out?

I'm thinking of doing something more on autistic thinking. Then, I do have some livestock books that came out recently. Humane Livestock Handling- that's a book strictly for ranchers and then I have a book coming out, an academic textbook on improving animal welfare, a practical approach.

Who reads the more technical books?

That would be veterinary students, animal science students, ranchers reading those strictly professional books. Thinking in Pictures, Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us Human, those are for the general public.

Are you looking forward to this movie that's being made about your life?
