Lyons vs Maxwell for foal training

HI guys I'm looking for some good ideas on stuff to do with my two foals I'll be weaning next week. I saw John Lyons' Bringing up Baby mentioned as good, but was also looking at Richard Maxwells From Birth to Backing. Is there a better one between these two books or is there someting better out there? Books, websites, just ideas on what you teach your babies apart from the obvious halter training, touching all over, feet etc.

I like to take some from one and some from another.. I really love Lyons but there are others out there too that i will use too. I think you have to see what works best with your foals...
