Twisting the brain into unimaginable shapes,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Tao of Equus: A Woman's Journey of Healing and Transformation Through the Way of the Horse (Hardcover)
I initially thought that surely she must be joking and that this is a putdown on new age pop psychology. Not so. This is the belly of the beast. One must be extraordinarily gullible or a gold medal wishful thinker to take this book seriously. The intellectual flaws are just too numerous to mention but there isn't anything I encountered (i.e., conceptually) that hasn't already been debunked in some other forum. The author seems unable to recognize how loose her reasoning processes are and how repeatedly she falls prey to self-delusion - hasn't she ever heard of "clever Hans?"
A fine book if you are looking for a fantasy fiction read but don't take it seriously. Then I noticed she was from Tucson - oh boy - so am I.
