Seabiscuit revisited

Just finished rereading "Seabiscuit" by Laura Hillenbrand. While the movie captures the heart of Seabiscuit's story, it doesn't tell it all. For that, you need to read her painstakingly researched and wonderfully written book. As she said in the interview reprinted at the end of the book, her aim was to write a nonfiction book that read like a novel. At that she succeeded brilliantly. I won't ruin it by providing details, but I can't recommend the book highly enough. Good night.
