I've always been fascinated by horses and horse racing, glad to learn a lot more about one of the greatest horses ever. Very hard to imagine our society today getting so wrapped up in horse racing. I must say I was very close to shedding a tear at the end when The Biscuit passed away.

The best non-fiction book I've ever read.

I don't care about horses, racing, depression-era history and don't like gambling.

But when I was reading this book, I actually took it into the bathroom to finish exciting sections when I was visiting my boyfriend long-distance. It's amazing.
