Although I've not heard of him previously, from the text in the book it appears that Peace may be Britain's answer to the "natural horsemanship" movement. Much of the content mirrors what you might hear from Dennis Reis or Clinton Anderson, but with terminology like "napping" (balking, or refusal) and "bolshy" (resistant or sulky). It makes reading a bit more entertaining for non-European audiences - or at least me.The book is well-organized and detailed, however the text is dense and very dry. I found the pictures detailing step by step progression much more useful - in fact, the full color photography is gorgeous, and the accompanying short descriptions and insets worth referring back to. There were several "bad" behaviors described which really ought to be dealt with by an experienced horse person or professional not by the average amateur horse owner. On the whole, while this would not be the first book I would buy on horse training, it's a useful addition to my collection.
