I'm pretty sure I have an Amazon gift card in the junk drawer at home. I shall now use it.

My favorite horse racing book of all time was Andy Beyer's, My $50,000 Year at the Races. Now I will have two favorites.

It will be a classic.
That's a big endorsement to me. Beyer's $50,000 year at the races book is my all time favorite horse racing or horse related book and I have read probably in the hundreds. I have read that book maybe 15 to 20 times, it's like an old friend.

It was also the first horse racing related book I ever read, my sister got it for me for a Christmas gift in maybe 1979 or so. Hooked ever since. I will check this one out. Thanks.

I used the Kindle cloud sample version through Amazon and it is awful to read. On my computer, I could not change the text size which is very small. Maybe the Full version is better, don't know. Ended up just ordering a hard copy.

I read the Kndle version. The formatting sucks.

Itís a good book. Worth the read.

it reminds me that there are some big fish out there. If youíre going to go swimming with them.......you might get hurt

Same here. Both Kindle issue and hard back.

The book is just excellent. Very enjoyable read.

Strange that people are having so much problem with a kindle version. Mine works wonderfully. There was a problem with the version that first came out but it was fixed pretty soon.

The kindle sample on the Amazon website is flawed...and the kindle edition there is advertised as having only 146 pages, while the hardback edition lists 286 pages.
