5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource for going on holiday!! 12 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Tolstoy's Bicycle is not the most encouraging, or graphical, of titles, but what a book it is!! This large tome is well worth the time and focus it requires to read it but you will not be able to put it down once you begin.The main objective is to emphasise the activities of life and general achievements and to link them with age, from birth to 100 years old to prove that we are all capable of great things, regardless of age. The facts and figures make amazing reading and, if nothing else, it will inspire you onward to greater deeds and improve that old self-esteem. A real treasure trove of information, Tolstoy's bicylcle is like no other and will delight, excite, surprise, depress, inform, engage your mind and keep you entertained for some wonderful moments time! A must on that long journey or holiday break!

4.0 out of 5 stars History from a personal perspective 21 Nov 2009
By Roger Petrich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
While I enjoy "Timetables of History" - all chunked up year by year according to the world's calendar, "Tolstoy's Bicycle" makes history personal. If you are 25 look up and see what other people did at age 25. Or maybe you are 65 and want to think of things you might look forward to in the next ten years. I purchased a copy of this book when it was new, and there still is nothing to compare with it. The current purchased copy is for a friend!
