The problems of author Andrew Longmore to write this book have been well documented; the book even had to be re-published due to some legal action by Stuart Webster against "his" passage in the book (why the hell he had a problem with the incident being quoted and explained is beyond me to be honest). Andrew Longmore does try hard to create some sort of balanced account of his subject, but as the book is not an authorized work and has been done without any help by Fallon himself, and many of them close to him refused to speak to Longmore as well, the book does suffer big time. It is in fact a sort of collection of things we have read in the press, mixed with some general quotes of trainers and companions, to not use the term "friends". If you want to read a recollection of the good horses Fallon has ridden, and are interested to refresh your general knowledge about the guy, this book is certainly ok. Its well written as such, with a fluent and easy style, and has a nice collection of photos too. If you expect any sort of "inside" information, or indeed any deeper insight into one of the most controversial jockeys of our time, you will be disappointed. Longmore achieved what he could under the circumstances, but he might as well not have bothered at all.

Save your money. Boring all the way. Remember, the jockey did not write this book so why bother reading it.
