He also touches upon the widespread corruption in horse racing, where almost everyone except the punter and sometimes the owner knew the winner.

Despite the tumultuous episodes, Mullane's narrative is not devoid of introspection. He candidly admits, "I apologise for my errant ways, it's not who I am; it's what I did." This self-awareness adds depth to the memoir, making it relatable to readers who have faced their own set of challenges and emerged stronger.
