It is an easy to read book. I enjoyed the relaxed writing style, and history associated with some of the decision making process whilst becoming, and continuing to be, an owner.

[It conveyed the] passion of being an owner, and what is involved within the decision making process. It showed how important it is to understand how racing (and racecourses) looks after owners (or doesn’t, in many cases!). The book did reinforce the fact to racing of how important owners are to the industry!

We both felt that we learnt more about the Timpson family (and actually found this a fascinating theme to the story, which we both felt could have been built upon within the book, without intruding into any more intimate details.)

I am sure racing people would be interested in the book [and would recommend it] as it is an informative and interesting read.
