We are less than two weeks away from the release of the most-anticipated literary venture into the mind of a horse since Seabiscuit, or at least Sex And The City. It's Barbaro: A Nation's Love Affair, which, fortunately, is only a metaphorical love affair.

It's an "up-to-the-minute book" — those are the best ones — about how Barbaro's " unlikely fight back from almost certain death from a shattered leg and ensuing complications captured the hearts of a nation who responded with a stunning display of love." The authors are Pamela K. Brodowsky, the mind behind several entries in the Staying Sane While Dieting series, and Tom Philbin, writer of The Psychic in You: Understand and Harness Your Natural Psychic Power.

We obviously cannot wait.
