As some of you who have been here for a longer time might remember, I once started planning to write a book about our way of interacting with horses. However, I didn't get very far. I think the main reason for this is that it felt rather demotivating for me to write something that I did not consider to be very useful: at every chapter that I started making notes for, one of my first thoughts after writing down the first words was: "And if you want a more thorough discussion of this, just go to the AND forum, because there you will get all the info you might ever wish for, and not just from a single perspective but from a variety of wonderful horse people."
So in the end I stopped writing, because the only thing I felt this book could add to our forum was that it explained things in lower quality to people who were too lazy to read English.
I wonder, however, if writing a more specific book about the thing that fascinates me most will run into the same problems. Some days ago I started searching for topics that were relevant in terms of body language, because I wanted to add some links to the terribly neglected body language sticky. And I can't find them. There's a note here and there, but no systematic overview and no thorough discusssion of more than just some singulary aspects, in contrast to those you can find it in threads dealing with hot topics like leadership, collection or foodrewards.
So my questions are those: Do you think I should write this book? Do you think I have enough to offer that could make it interesting for anyone to read it? Do you think a book is an appropriate (or at least possible) format for this at all? It could be offered together with a DVD or something, which might make some things more clear. I have no financial interest in this, so I am totally okay with publishing it here in the forum. I just wonder if it's worth the effort. So... is there anyone interested or does anyone know people who might be interested?
