From the cover: “Willie Carson remains one of the best known faces in British sport. The jockey’s extraordinary will to win has carried him to a fresh pinnacle of achievement and popularity. Just over 5 feet tall and weighing only 7st 10 Ibs stripped, the 49-year-old Stirling-born ‘pocket dynamo’ has been a byword for strength and determination for nearly thirty years. In this book, Seely gives an in-depth study of a remarkable character which, together with the many superb action photographs spanning his long career, make this a handsome tribute to Britain’s toughest and best loved jockey.”
