Banyen's Description: 

With The Man Who Listens to Horses, Monty Roberts shed new light on the communication possible between horse and human, offering a new way of thinking about and relating to animals—a vision of kindness and compassion. That bestseller told the story of a man who overcame his father’s brutality to become the most famous horse gentler in the world. Drawing now on the experiences and wisdom gained over the decades in his groundbreaking work with animals, Horse Sense for People applies that knowledge to the way we relate to each other: how we handle hierarchical power struggles, manage corporations and work with our colleagues, behave towards each other in our families, and raise our children. The book uses compelling real-life examples, from corporate experiences to horrific abuse stories, to illustrate how his horse principles have successfully been applied.

By turns practical, philosophical and provocative, and rich in anecdote, Horse Sense for People bids us rethink the way we use power over others, and makes the compelling argument that with humans as with horses the gentle way is the better way. Monty Roberts may have changed forever the way we treat horses; this book has an even loftier ambition—to change the way we treat each other.

“I’m no horseman, but I know miracles when they happen. I’ve watched this magician of nonviolence change wild rearing beasts into gentle horses under their riders, time and again, in minutes. Here he translates from his original cross-species adventures to hand us some powerful lessons about healing and gentling ourselves and our relationships.” —Richard Bach, author of Illusions and One
