Just as football evolved with the introduction of the forward pass, and basketball with the development of the jump shot, so too was handicapping irrevocably changed by the use of speed figures - and it all started with Andrew Beyer's Picking Winners. This edition features a new foreword by the author discussing the changes that have swept the sport since the book's original publication. But Picking Winners remains the classic book in its field. Sports Illustrated wrote that its lessons "are framed in anecdote and aphorism, delivered in the clean, rapid-fire prose that is a Beyer trademark. The sheer energy of Picking Winners made it, like its author, irresistible even to people who were not likely to go around the bend about thoroughbred racing."
