Praise for Laura Hillenbrand’s "Seabiscuit: An American Legend"
 
“Captivating . . . a flawless trip, with the detail of good history, the blistering pace of Biscuit himself, and the charm of grand legend.”—"The New York Times Book Review"
 
“Wonderful . . . astounding . . . almost unbearably suspenseful . . . Ideally, you wouldn’t just find Laura Hillenbrand’s "Seabiscuit: An American Legend" in bookstores. It would be next to Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole or Lee Wiley CDs as well—anywhere you’d go to look for love songs.”—Salon
 
“It is hugely refreshing when [a book] as fine as this one comes along. The research is meticulous, the writing elegant and concise, so that every page transports you back to the period. . . . This is a remarkable tale well told.”—"The Economist"
 
“Engrossing . . . terrific . . . Hillenbrand not only ties . . . dive

""A one-in-a-billion story... seems designed to wrench from self-respecting critics all the blurby adjectives we normally try to avoidL It is amazing, unforgettable, gripping, harrowing, chilling, and inspiring. It sucked me in and swept me away. It kept me reading late into the night. I could not...(it really hurts me to type this)...put it...(must find the strength to resist)... down."--"New York Magazine
""A warning: after cracking open "Unbroken" you may find yourself dog
