Will move you, educate you, entertain you and make you feel part of this amazing adventure and the intriguing people involved. When finished, check UTube to watch actual footage of the races. The story of Seabiscuit will stay with you for a long time. More than worth your credits.
I would recommend this listen. The narrator is excellent and the story is engaging. I knew nothing of horse racing but wanted to gain a bit of knowledge before my trip to Churchill Downs. It was well worth my time.
This book and this audiobook has everything a reader can ask for: Classic Hero's Journey to the very end and for all of the major players, skilled and exciting research and storytelling (written and spoken). Should be required in history curriculum in all schools.
Laura Hildebrand has the rare gift to tell a good story while being vigilant in maintaining historic accuracy and literary grace.
The performance is excellent and the production is flawless.
This is a must listen and a must read.
Wonderful reader, wonderful story. Laura Hillenbrand is a treasurer. Detailed, moving, exciting, and full. Without much knowledge of horses in general, and racing specifically, I learned a lot, too. A must-listen!

A moving biography of a great race horse. I've been aware of SeaBiscuit since my days in grammar school, but not the interesting details about a classic athlete's capture of an entire nation. Enjoyable Audible listening selection.
