This spellbinding memoir details the extraordinary life of Monty Roberts: a man whose gentle, compassionate training methods - transforming the once brutal practice of horse-breaking throughout the world - are redefining the way we think about communication, not only between other species but between ourselves. Over the past year, more than a million people have been uplifted by Roberts' book - from animal lovers to business leaders, and everyone in between. Amusing, poignant, riveting and humane, The Man Who Listens to Horses is that rare book that brings us into the company of a man and his magic, and opens us to the world of animals.
