Seabiscuit has been my favorite race horse since I was a little girl. The book "Come On Seabiscuit!" was my favorite and from that story, I fell in love with the courageous, knobby-kneed champion. He was truly a heroic athlete with heart never known before or since. I haven't read the book but am planning to, soon. It warms my heart to see such wonderful reviews about a book about a race horse, by all kinds of people, not just horse lovers. A job well done!

Just completed reading an advance copy of the book. The writing is as gripping as any novel. Any reader is pulled along through the life of a horse, the lives of the jockeys, trainers and owners, and the fabric of this country at a critical period of our history. You have done an excellent job in weaving them all into a story that brings a small part of our national growth into an exciting spotlight.

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Laura's piece on Seabiscuit while flying home. I read it once, drymouthed, heart pounding. I read it again, to my wife and daughters, tears rolling down my cheeks. What a compelling story, beautifully told, full of drama, pathos and humanity. It was, simply put, the best sports story I've read in years and years. Thank you. Thank you.

Hi Laura, I have not read the book yet but and chomping at the bit to get hold of it. I have always loved Seabiscuit as a kid growing up. I am sure we can put him on the same top shelf with a horse that I was fortunate to ride named Secretariat. Sounds like it is a heart warming story and thank you for bringing this long awaited story to us. Jim Gaffney, Bigredjg@aol.com

We recently received our last issue of Talk magazine and your article was by far the best I've read in the history of all the Talk Magazines we've ever received. I don't consider myself a strong reader but this article was absoultely captivating and had me at the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Thank you for sharing the excerpt and I'm in line at Amazon.com for a copy as soon as they arrive.

My dear friend Laura has written a great book about a great horse. I have been following this work since its inception - what a privilege! - and I will be the first to buy multiple copies for myself, all of my horse-y frineds, and everyone I know who appreciates good writing! Congratulations, Laura!

Laura - I grew up hearing alot about Seabiscuit (& Phar Lap, et. al.) from my grandfather Gene Normile (who ran Caliente with Coffroth in the 20s & 30s & ran Seabiscuit several times)...was just visiting my 95 year "young" aunt Madeline Normile McDowell over Christmas & she related how Charlie & 2d wife Marcella were "talked into" taking up horses during a dinner at the Howard's Atherton home which she attended with grandfather Gene & wife Lillian (shortly after the Howard's had returned from one of their African Safari trips after getting out of the Buick business...I have this and many more interesting stories, most I heard firsthand from grandfather Gene but more retold by my Aunt from her wonderful memory (Seabiscuit's saddleblanket "goodluck charm", Marcella's present from Charlie, why Marcella didn't like to see Seabiscuit race, & others)...looking forward to reading your book.

Really enjoyed your website. I look forward to the book and the movie, there are so few movies on our racing heroes anymore, but i digress. One question that I did have, the one photo in the slideshow has Barbara Livingston credited, um, she isn't that old and was hardly around to take that picture. Isn't this a mistake? We used to be penpals and I know I'm not that old-haha. Just wondering. Glad to see others still see thoroughbreds as heroes. Wonderful work!

being the son of the greatest starter of all time (George Cassidy), I guess I am a bit biased, I found this book absolutely captivating. I can remember some of the names although I never got to see Seabiscuit because I was born in 1947. Just imagine how racing would benefit from a modern day seabiscuit.
