Book I Ordered – The Genesis of Modern Horseracing

I just ordered a $55 book for Christmas for a person I’ve never met. It’s Eclipse by Nicholas Cree. (Nice reviews here and here)

Why bought? This person – older retirement age – has let a person I know live at his house for at least seven months. He wasn’t there for most of it. She’s a strong friend. I wouldn’t have got anything probably except he’s interested – very – in horse racing. He goes betting, he’s got horse posters and art on his walls and I think he was a former (or current?) racehorse owner.

This book is a solid natural. Hardcover. I had to order used because its not in stock that I could find on online retailers.
