KIRKUS REVIEW

What Free for All. Evan Shipman's grand story did for the trotting track. 'Larry Lynx' has done for racing. Devotees of the track will devour it for here in one volume are the episodes, sad and glad, that have made up his life for thirty years as racing editor for the ""People"". Larry writes in a quick, choppy style. Full of the sly twinkle and humor that lurk in his eyes and are so characteristic of his familiar figure that is at all the English meets. It presents an interesting picture of their slightly different customs, gives intimate sidelights on famous horses, jockeys and fans, and then goes thoroughly practical in a chapter that should sell at least one copy to everyone of the enthusiasts that make up the hordes that follow the races entitled. ""How to Make Money at Racing"". For those of you who will have the races in your cities this spring, I suggest having a poster made with that captika and putting it in a window with the books.
