Horse Sense for People: Using the Gentle Wisdom of the Join-up Technique to Enrich Our Relationships at Home and at Work
Monty Roberts's The Man Who Listens to Horses spent more than a year on The New York Times bestseller list, sold more than three million copies worldwide, and was hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "the kind of life-altering book you never want to finish". In Horse Sense for People, the man who overcame his father's brutality to become the horse gentler to Queen Elizabeth asks us to rethink the way we use power over others and shows how with humans-as with horses-the gentle way is the better way. By turns practical, philosophical, and provocative, Horse Sense for People demonstrates how trust, respect, and communication-not coercion-are the key to fruitful relationships. Rich in anecdotes about both horses and people, it applies the lifetime of lessons Roberts learned from horses, and developed in his revolutionary "join-up" method, to the way we relate to one another in the workplace and at home. This is the book, from a celebrated and charismatic author, that professionals, parents, and horse lovers have been asking for.
