5.0 out of 5 stars
book of superlatives, 24 Sept. 2014
Wonderful thing about this book is that for posterity, Henry Cecil is depicted as a human being dealing with the world that we all know and wrestle. That he succeeded in such a very English way, understated, is an inspiration for us all. In gratitude I can say that he brought Frankel into all our lives. Frankel, who will gallop in many a head until the day they die.
This book is wonderful, inspirational. I understand why the Cecil's objected, nobody wants the sad and unhappy bits recorded, but that is what marks us all as human and was necessary for posterity.
