Good stories about Beyer's journey in developing a method to handicap thoroughbred race horses but outdated. Book teaches a complicated system for developing speed ratings for race horses. Outdated because these speed numbers are readily available in the Daily Racing Form.

Kind of wish I'd read "Picking Winners" first, as this one is really a defense of the methods he described in that book. But a good and surprisingly entertaining read - Beyer's an excellent handicapper but he's also a very good writer.
