A pair of hefty numbers - 113 and nearly 2400 - tell the story.
The former is the number of years this definitive yearly review of racing has been published, while the latter is the pages in this edition. As impressive as the wealth of information is the readability & easy access when attempting to search for material.
The Daily Racing Form publishes a number of new books each year on various facets of the industry, but the manual is the Triple Crown champion of them all.
