From the Publisher"Written with an effortless command of history and language, Man o' War frees Thoroughbred racing's greatest icon from nearly a century of mythology and mystery. In its pages, Man o' War lives in all his complexity: emphatic, breathtaking, maddening, both a blessing and a curse to those who cultivated his superlative talent. Man o' War is a riveting work, researched meticulously and told brilliantly."
—-Laura Hillenbrand, New York Times bestselling author of Seabiscuit: An American Legend
"You take twenty-two chapters, mix in one spectacular Thoroughbred racehorse, and gently blend in just enough inscrutability, dishonesty, and plot—-voilá! One must-read book that equals hours of unadulterated pleasure."
—-George M. Steinbrenner III
"The golden era of racing and its greatest star come to life in the vivid pages of Dorothy Ours's outstanding retrospective on Man o' War."
—-Joe Hirsch, Daily Racing Form
