I really enjoyed this book. I met him once, having gone to school with his son. Mr. Roberts speaks from his heart as he tells the story of his upbringing and how he overcame much adversity. This isn't just a horse lover's story, although equine handlers will obtain a unique view on how to handle their four legged partners. This book is for anyone out there in the world just trying to survive. Very inspirational.

More then just another horse book. This book is for non-horse and horse folks alike.
Why?
Because the insightful sensativity of this author shows us a way to a life that can be, if we let it flow.

This is a surprising book and an exceptionally nice surprise at that. I bought it thinking it would be a nice read about horses, a topic I am mildly interested in. The book turned out to be an insightful look at people and one man's ability to transform his relationships with horses and with people to gain their trust. A really good book; I highly recommend it.

This is one of the most touching books I have read in a long time. The things Monty Roberts has learned about horses, animals and people is amazing. I am so very thankful to have learned of this book and read his story and how he has grown through all his life to learn and then share his love with others. :)

Monty Roberts discovers horse language and how to use it to communicate with these beautiful animals. If you love horses, even slightly, this is a good read. At times,
he sidetracks with stories of growing up in a dysfunctional household, but, if you can
get through this, it is worth it.

Monty Roberts is a real live horse whisperer. He believes in communicating and gentling horses rather than breaking their spirits. Anyone who loves or is interested in horses will enjoy this hard to put down book.

Personally, I disliked this book. Monty's methods are like Clinton Anderson's where "round penning" is concerned, but I don't believe in the theories behind his methods. I couldn't stand to read more than 3 or 4 chapters. It was well written, I just don't believe Monty's philosophy. His father was a heavy-handed-"horse breaker" so Monty set out to be as gentle as possible...which is good, but for a horse to respect you a person must also be as firm as necessary. Before I discovered Downunder Horsemanship and started training my horse with Clinton Anderson's methods and seeing amazing results I might have liked this book and now I discovered real natural horsemanship....no the lovely-dovey touchy-feely "peace with the horse" junk. Sorry, to disappoint, but those are my thoughts. Please try reading Clinton's books. You'll be surprised!

This book was really interesting to me. I knew of and appreciated the experience of non verbal communication with dogs and cats. Not having any experience with horses, it was an eye opener on how this man used his observations to gently teach horses to work with humans.Was a wonderful reminder on how communication and kindness can open doors. it was wonderful how he rejected his own childhood experiences of cruelty, and decided to follow another way.

Excellent book! I am so glad I read this book as I feel that I know so much more about Monty Roberts, his character, integrity, and beliefs. This is in addition to his relationship with horses. A good read.

Monty Roberts' book "The Man Who Listens to Horses" has inspired me to the depths of my soul. Observing Monty's philosophy and method of workng with horses and people is one of the most profoundly deep, awe-inspiring, and heart-opening experiences I've ever witnessed. I hightly recommend this book to everyone---Jack Canfield

good book for horse lovers

A far better read than the novel adapted for the movie! Many truths about life and those who really listen, watch and apply realities to problems and situations. This man works with horses on the horses terms, and in turn the horses work for him. How sweet the world would be if in all situations we took the time to understand those we wish to partner with, and use that information to get along cooperatively.

This is a life chanign book. Not only will you learn about the spirit of horses, but it teaches a great deal about the spirit of humans. It was a New York Times bestseller and made into a movie--that's how wonderful this true story is.
