My only regret with this book is that i didn't buy it before i went to the Alps!

Well laid out and easy to use the only things missing are the time to do the rides and a location map in the book. Certainly a book to inspire you on those dark, cold winter nights!

This is a great book and unlike the majority of cycling books on "great climbs" is not focused on the climbs of the TDF. As you might expect from the author the majority of the passes are in Austria, Switzerland and Italy. It has a host of useful information although the prinicpal drawback is that the descriptions and route notes are primarily only relevant to the direction the route was climbed. Slightly annoyingly, many of these are not from the "classic" side, used in the Giro, Tour de Suisse etc. Also the gradings of the climbs from Easy to Difficult are highly subjective and must have been very dependent on how he was feeling "on the day". Anyone who finds the Giau and the Fedaia "medium" the same as the nearby Rolle, must have been on a good one.

Overall though its a great book and a good source of inspiration when planning a trip, particularly as it contains many little known climbs.

If you are visiting the Alpes then this book is a must have. It has just the right amount of info and is the ideal size to stash in your bag for a bit of easy reading.
