Seabiscuit was one of the most electrifying and popular attractions in sports history and the single biggest newsmaker in the world in 1938, receiving more coverage than FDR, Hitler, or Mussolini.

Author Laura Hillenbrand brilliantly re-creates a universal underdog story, one that proves life is a horse race.
