I was already familiar with Barbaro's story, and this book didn't add anything new. To me, it read like a collection of newspaper articles.
These two cannot write books without typos and factual errors! I swear, they are not capable of it!


Still, with that aside, this is a pretty good book. They certainly share and understand everyone's love for Barbaro. Just double-check the facts you come across in it, as they may or may not be correct.
A heartwarming biography of the life of Barbaro, the tragedy-ridden 2006 Kentucky Derby winner.
This was a wonderful book & it made me cry!
