"I'm no horseman, but I know miracles when they happen. I've watched this magician of nonviolence change the wild rearing beasts into gentle horses under their riders, time and again, in minutes. Here he hands us some powerful lessons about healing and gentling ourselves and our relationships." --Richard Bach, author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull
