Written by a team of consultants who combine modern business knowledge with decades of direct experience of working in the equine industry, this book bridges the gap between modern business theory and equine business practice. After providing overviews of the equestrian industry and the livery sector as a detailed example, Part I (Assessing a Business) sets out how to access the business environment, externally, competitively and with regard to its internal resources. Part 2 (Management) goes on to deal with resource management and how to go about strategic planning and marketing, concluding with an overall Business Plan. Part 3 sets out a series of case histories to illustrate the principles as discussed in Part 1 and 2. No other book applies a truly modern business approach to equine enterprise. The Authors Sharon Eastwood, Anne-Lise Riis Jensen and Anna Jordon work together at Dark Horse Consultancy, a team of equine business consultants offering a wide range of advice and services to the industry.

Die Geißel der Menschheit verstehen Seit über fünftausend Jahren lebt die Menschheit mit Krebs. Ebenso lange stirbt sie daran. Und doch gilt Krebs als eine »moderne« Erkrankung, weil keine andere Krankheit unsere Zeit dermaßen prägt. Bezeichnend sind die Namen, die man dem Krebs gegeben hat: »König aller Krankheiten« oder »ein Monster, unersättlicher als die Guillotine«. In seiner perfiden Perfektion, in seiner Anpassungsfähigkeit und seiner Widerstandskraft nimmt der Krebs beinahe menschliche Züge an. Seine Geschichte gleicht einer Biografie: Es ist die Geschichte von Leid, von Forscherdrang, Ideenreichtum und Beharrlichkeit – aber auch von Hochmut, Arroganz und unzähligen Fehleinschätzungen. Siddhartha Mukherjee widmet sich seinem Thema mit der Präzision eines Zellbiologen, mit der Kenntnis eines Historikers und mit der Passion eines Biografen. Fesselnd erzählt er von der persischen Königin Atossa, deren griechischer Sklave sie möglicherweise von ihrem Brustkrebs geheilt hat, von Erkrankten im 19. Jahrhundert, die erste Bestrahlungen und Chemotherapien über sich ergehen lassen mussten – und immer wieder von seinen eigenen Patienten. ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹ wirft einen faszinierenden Blick in die Zukunft der Krebsbehandlung und liefert eine brillante neue Perspektive auf die Art, wie Ärzte, Wissenschaftler, Philosophen und Laien den kranken – und den gesunden – Körper während Jahrtausenden begriffen haben.
