    I came to this after watching the fine 2003 film version directed by Gary Ross that was based on this book.A marvellously detailed and engrossing book, Hillenbrand does a fine job of contextualising this remarkable story within its time frame it is not just a study of the lives of three men and a racehorse it describes the racing industry of the day and it s place in 1930s America, a whole detailed, panoramic background against w

    It has been a long time since a book has so gripped me I am an avid book reader but mostly read Christian non fiction but, having seen the film I was intrigued as to what the whole story would be like I cannot begin to find all the superlative words except to say I was not disappointed in any way, even the races themselves were written in such a way that you could truly see what was going on and you found yourself tensing as you read th

    Charles Howard was good at spotting opportunities and made a fortune as the General Motors automobile distributor for the Western United States in the 1920 s He also made the most unlikely choice of Tom Smith as trainer for his newly established racing stable.Smith was 56 when Howard met him and had spent his life around horses, cattle ranching, taming mustangs for the British cavalry, circus shows, small time racing but by 1934 he was out of

    The research that has gone into this book is extraordinary No stone unturned It vividly brings alive the harsh realities of race riding in this era The descriptions of the races and accidents are heartthumping and tear jerking How Destiny threw together, owner,trainer,horse and jockey seem a work of fiction ,but it s fact,fact burned in history ,sporting history that will echo forever Sublime.

    Terrific read I had heard good reports about this book, and my goodness the same were bang on.I am really not a horse racing fan, but like many I suspect, I saw the excellent film, and was intrigued to learn And this is exactly what this book provides real meat on the bones so to speak.I really cannot recommend this book too highly.

    I saw the film a few years with my wife and we both loved it Decided to read the book on a whim Good move I know nothing about racing, don t get on with horses too well, but you can come to this story without knowledge or love of either Of course Seabiscuit is the main character as it were, but it s the humans and their shortcomings and strengths that really bring the book to life I was sorry to finish the book, it filled many dreary January days with light and co

    This is an incredible book and I would recommend it without hesitation to anyone who enjoys reading I had no prior knowledge of Seabiscuit s exploits and no interset in horses or horse racing but heard a very enthusiastic review of this book and saw that it was available at a good price so I thought Why not I left it on the to read shelf until 6 months later and picked it up for a holiday read Quite simply it blew me away The first quarter of the book is a little fragmented but

    Not my usual cup of tea but extremely well written about a fantastic horse, his trainer, owner and jockeys I now know a lot about the strategy of horse races and the hardships faced by jockeys The book also intersperses the history outside racing at the time.

    I bought this book during an ME CFS crash as I know that Laura Hillenbrand wrote it while suffering from severe ME I thought it may be inspiring, which it was, but it also happens to be a brilliant book, well written with fascinating characters including Seabiscuit himself I read it in a weekend and would highly recommend it.
