I don't think I've ever been as fascinated, disturbed, and deeply moved as I was when reading this book. I never went through a "crazy-for-horses" phase as a teen, but Ms. Kohanov has taught me a great deal about the deep bonds, history, and mutual support that exist between humans and horses. She reports some fascinating research about the nature of "mind" as well. I am in awe of an author who can write so well, especially about nonverbal experiences, AND who has helped so many people and horses overcome their traumas and confusion. I will be putting this book into the hands of several of my friends and loved ones.
