Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was disappointed in this book. I thougth it would help me out but it didn't. A lot of talk about horses. It just went on and on that I got so bored I started skipping through pages. No where did it help the reader deal with their own self defeating habits like it says on the cover of the book.
This is book is wonderful! A refreshing, engaging and very helpful approach to understanding one's mind and emotions in so many contexts. I found Bennett-Goleman's use of the metaphor of horse whispering to be brilliant, inspiring AND accessible-- a unique approach to how we can find more ease in both our inner lives and in our connection with others through the kind of mindful collaboration used in horse-whispering. Elegant, clear prose and great anecdotes! I highly recommend this beautiful book-- it's a unique gem that shouldn't be missed!
