The Emotional World of Farm Animals. This time out, Masson divides his time between intelligently speculating on the emotional range of farm animals and overreading the evidence to draw unsupportable conclusions. In his fourth work on the complex emotional lives of animals (The Nine Emotional Lives of Cats, 2002, et., the author marshals his supply of anecdotal, literary, and scientific evidence in the service of farm animals. And again-with his standard caveat: How can I, or anyone, know what an animal is really feeling?

But Jeffrey Masson has a different view: An animal is happy if it can live according to its own nature

Now, he focuses exclusively on the contained world of the farm animal, revealing startling, irrefutable evidence that barnyard creatures have feelings too, even consciousness. But Jeffrey Masson has a different view: An animal is happy if it can live according to its own nature. Farm animals suffer greatly in this regard.

Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson (born March 28, 1941 as Jeffrey Lloyd Masson) is an American author. The Pig Who Sang to the Moon: The Emotional World of Farm Animals (New York: Ballantine Books, 2004. Masson is best known for his conclusions about Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis. In his The Assault on Truth (1984), Masson argues that Freud may have abandoned his seduction theory because he feared that granting the truth of his female patients' claims (that they had been sexually abused) would hinder the acceptance of his psychoanalytic methods. Masson is a vegan and has written about animal rights.

This is a book about farm animals - chickens, cows, sheep and goats - and what they think and feel. As with his previous bestsellers on animal emotions, Jeffrey Masson reveals that these creatures, so often despised or abused, feel complex emotions - among them love, loyalty, friendship, sadness, grief and sorrow. The domesticated animals which live on our farms are very little removed from their wild ancestors, and keep the emotions that belong to those animals when they lived free. This means that the confinement farm animals are subjected to is painful to them and that those enduring factory farm conditions are suffering little less than torture. Thinking about the wild ancestors of farm animals allows us to answer many questions that were once considered unanswerable. Those answers, however uncomfortable, are at last providing insights into the personalities and needs of the animals on whom we depend.

Not an easy read. It will open your eyes about how the animals killed for human consumption are treated. I was vegetarian before reading this book, now I'm vegan. this book should be required reading in every high school and university in the Western world!

I absolutely love this book. I found myself weeping at the injustice and inhumanity of the way farm animals are treated. This book was a great read and it reaffirmed my compassion towards our animal friends.

Fair warning: If you've ever felt even a little disquieted about your relationship to the beings we eat, Jeffrey Masson explains why. You will no longer be able to view chickens, cows, and pigs as mere meat units, somehow "less than" dogs, cats, and baby seals. This book may challenge and shake your assumptions and lead you to ask yourself if it is possible to refer to yourself as being an "animal lover" while being an animal eater, particularly when the methods used to produce, raise, and "process" meat animals (and eggs) is often indescribably cruel. At the very least it may spur you on, as it did me, to advocate for Ethical Eating; an end to factory farming and inhumane slaughtering methods ("google" shackling live chickens). An inspring and evocative read. Mt Masson continues to be animal's best friend.

Jeffrey Masson is compassionate and brilliant. He provides insights into animals' lives that most people will never have the change to encounter. People must understand the true nature of animals; their unique intelligence and sensitivities, their ability and need to have social connections, their ability to love and fear and feel pain and joy; and they do suffer greatly from human harm. All animal exploitation must end.

What I love about this book is its approach. It doesn't come with thousands of statistics but instead uses research and stories in a mix which makes it compelling to read and at the same time supports argumentation for the sake of animals. It does not force any opinion on the reader but I guess those who buy the book are on their vegetarian-vegan journey already. What I love are the anecdotes - because this is actually something that can be used in discussions with meat-eaters and those who refuse to believe in anybody other than human beings having got any feelings at all.

Jeffrey here is more playful than in his more academic works, and it balances well in his incredible body of work from this seminal
thinker.

Congratulations and thanks to Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson for another insightful and inspiring book. "The Pig Who Sang to the Moon" lives up to the legacy of "When Elephants Weep" and his other books, as it opens our eyes to the reality of the animals' world so that our hearts embrace the depth and complexity of their emotional lives.
The book is filled with surprising, heartwarming and even humorous stories that illustrate the emotionality of the animals typically relegated to the role of "livestock" in our culture. It also reveals hard facts about how these sensitive creatures are handled between the barnyard and the dinner plate. But mercifully, Mr. Masson succeeds at telling the often troubling truth about what animals experience at the hands of humans, without making the book too gruesome for sensitive readers to endure. The more gory details are tucked away in the endnotes at the back of the book for those who need the information and can bear to read it. The rest of us can move safely through the text, reminded of the reasons to make conscious choices about the food we eat and the clothes we wear, but also entertained by the remarkable stories and uplifted by the recognition of how much we share with our four-legged or feathered brethren.
"The Pig Who Sang to the Moon" is an enormously valuable collection of information and anecdotes that will help us all move a little closer to shedding the veil of denial about who animals are. We'll be the richer for it, as we dissolve the boundaries between "us" and "them" and renew our connection with all the creatures who share our planet.
Absolutely delightful.
