Reviews

"By far the best book on racing I have ever read. It combines a truly extraordinary story, one that no novelist would have dared to submit, with brilliant writing by an author who is almost as knowledgeable about horses and the turf as his subject. It is a just tribute to a man who deserves to be admired beyond even his achievements." --"Spectator"
"Scott's achievement has been to explain Cecil's genius and charisma without shying away from the more complex issues. The result is a wonderfully rounded portrait of one of the most endearing figures in British sport." --"Sunday Times"
"Scott's tour of Cecil's inner self is as fascinating as it is illuminating." --"Daily Telegraph"
