Brohamer's book is a work of art. He doesn't bore you to death about how he struggled in the 70's at betting horses and then one day started winning b/c he was enlightened w/some elaborate method to pick winners (which will of course cost $ to anyone dumb enough to pay for it). Those types of books are published everyday and rightfully deserve a permanent home in my trash-can. Unlike those self-proclaimed "experts," Brohamer gives it to you straight up front. This book is not for those players devoted to speed-figures as they should stick w/Beyer's speed figures like the rest of the betting public. This is an extensive analysis of pace-handicapping and Brohamer does an excellent job explaining every step to calculating a horses's predicted pace at difference segments in a race (1st call, 2d call, etc). It is a wonderful system based on Feet-Per-Second calculations and yes, it does require you to actually put the effort into calculating a horse's pace rating with a calculator, notepad and pencil. It requires A LOT of hard work to completely understand and apply the principles, but if you follow his advice, you will be able to analyze a horse's performance in an entirely different light and predict w/confidence how a horse may run in an upcoming race. I stress the word "may run" b/c horseracing involves a multitude of variables, each of which may affect the outcome of a race.
Im not saying this book is the greatest ever written or that you only need this one book to succeed, but it will definitely assist you in evaluating past-performances regardless of what methods you are currently using. His methods are clear. concise and the FPS calculations can be easily converted into an Excel Spreadsheet. In short, this is an excellent book and allowed me to look confidently into the face of my buddy and say that the 20-1 overlay at Monmouth Park would pass the field after the turn going into the stretch even though it was 19lengths behind the leader at the 1st call...when that horse did exactly that, I gave a silent "thank you" to Mr. Brohamer (as I walked to the cashier's window).

not much use in Australia though you'll maybe pick up a few angles if that's what you need, even here
