My take on "Signers"

I thought the book was excellent! The first part was like a journey. From starting with no knowledge of the game to making the first bet. I could really relate to "the room", been there, done that! The difference being, my wife thinks I'm nuts! The author tells of the ups and downs of betting the races, the wins and losses. Not all is peaches and cream! When the journey reaches the point where she's comfortable with her method of selection and betting methods, she takes you along with her while she analyses her picks and structures her bets. I felt I was looking over her shoulder and listening to her while she made her selections. Loved the book - will probably read it many times, especially when my horses seem like they're walking around the track. I can take solice in the fact that it happens even to the successful horseplayer.

I just finished reading this book too and I agree with you. I felt as though I followed her through her progression, ups and downs, and I appreciated her honesty. This book was entertaining and a great insight book on handicapping. It sort of reminded me of Mark Cramer's book Scared Money.
I need to read it again and I look forward to it.
