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.

Few words to describe this experience. The movie pales in comparison. I was moved to tears...which is rare for me when listening to books.
I enjoyed learning about Seabiscuit and his endeavors, along with his supporting cast. Nice read
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.
