The idea, and the effort behind this book was good, however, I found the writing style very hard to follow. The author used several terms before defining them, and some of the definitions were a little iffy at that. There were also some places where the information seemed confusing and maybe even wrong. For example the author refered to a kickstarter being on the left side of a motorcycle, then on the right. In several chapters I felt that the important subjects were glanced over in a paragraph or two, and at other times too much detail on something was given. I have about 15 books on various aspects of motorcycling, and this was the first book I have returned. [as motorcycle instructor, I want to be able to recommend good books to my students when they ask, therefore I try to keep up with current motorcycle related books] As I said, the author had good intentions, but the book felt rushed, as if he had a deadline and couldn't smooth things out in time.
