Review: Form: My Autobiography – Kieren Fallon
Overall rating: 8/10
Kieren Fallon was one of the world’s greatest jockeys, but he always had his demons. He was known as one of the greatest horsemen to ever sit on a horse and had a wonderful career. However, he suffered from personal problems and his career was littered with controversial moments.
He faced a trial for race fixing, was banned for failing a drugs test while winning some of the world’s biggest Group 1s. His skill in the saddle made him a punters favourite and despite his problems away from racing, he was always a racing fans favourite.
The book receives a solid 8/10 from us. Fallon provides a very honest account of his life in his book and for anyone that is a horse racing fan, you will undoubtedly enjoy this book. He had some wonderful times during his life, but the constant battle with his demons makes this a fascinating read.
- Very honest views all his life
- Brilliant memories of great races
- Insight into his special way with horses
- If you’re a Fallon fan you might know all the stories
- Possibly too one-sided on his brushes with the law
If you’re a Kieren Fallon fan, you will love this book. To look back on his incredible life with all his honesty makes this book a brilliant read. It is recommended for all horse racing fans and once you get into it you won’t be able to put it down. For anyone who doesn’t enjoy racing, this book may read like a novel but it’s all true and it is definitely worth reading to get an insight into the life of a brilliant, but troubled, sportsman.
