The Man Who Listens to Horses Author:Monty Roberts Monty Roberts is part James Herriott, part Bill Gates, and part John Wayne. And his story is one you will never forget. Monty Roberts is a real-life horse whisperer - an American original whose gentle training methods reveal the depth of communication possible between man and animal. He can take a wild, high-strung horse who has never been handl... more »ed and persuade that horse to accept a bridle, saddle and rider in thirty minutes.
Monty's powers may seem like magic, but his amazing "horse sense" is based on a lifetime of experience. He started riding at the age of two, and at the age of thirteen went alone in the high deserts of Nevada to study mustangs in the wild. In The Man Who Listens to Horses, Roberts tells about his early days as a rodeo rider, his problems with his violent, horse-trainer father, his friendship with James Dean, and the invitation that changed his life - to demonstrate his methods to the Queen of England.
From his groundbreaking work with horses, monty now takes his understanding of nonverbal communication and applies it to human relationships as well. He has shown that between parent and child, employer and employee, and abuser and abused, there are forms of communication far stronger than the spoken word - forms accessible to all who will learn to listen. He's shared his insights with more than 250 corporation, including General Motors, IBM, Disney, and Merrill Lynch; now listeners can learn from Monty first-hand.« less
