I received that book at a birthday present back in September. I've learned quite a bit from it! I think it's a great book.

Glad others have found it useful as well! I'm about 1/2 way through it now

I read it over the summer. I thought it was really straightforward and accessible; as a new-"ish" adult rider (I've been riding for about a year and a half now), it gave me a lot to think about, but wasn't overwhelming or overly technical. I'd recommend it to anyone who is new to horses or just wants more perspective on how horses think and react to things.

Agreed that it is a great book. I heard somewhere that if you make a fist & put it between your eyes (on the bridge of your nose), you'll have vision similar to a horses'. It makes it easier to understand some of their actions.
