The Simple Game, an Irish Jockey's Memoir is an honest and emotional account of author and professional jockey Thomas Foley's struggle to recapture his passion for the sport and the horses that came to define his life. Starting with his dream of becoming a jockey, Foley takes us with him on his journey across the Atlantic, and allows us to witness firsthand his failed marriage and troubled relationship with his sons. In a sport where a jockey seldom admits to his weaknesses, Foley openly reveals his struggle with bulimia and sleeping pills, as well as his constant search for love and meaning in his life. Foley opens the door to his soul and invites us all to learn from his mistakes and triumphs. Written with true Irish wit and the "voice" of a seasoned author, Foley's The Simple Game will leave you feeling as if you've known him your entire life.
