This is an unusual book. It's written for motorcyclists about the theoretical and practical application of psychological techniques to improve riding. It's a paperback that thinks it's a hardback and it's in a large format,
There's a lot to like. It's insightful, provocative, interesting and helpful.The layout is engaging, production values are very high, and it has excellent colour photos and diagrams.
So why not five stars? Well, I'm sure it's magic in the original German, but translated into English the style is awkward. It's not an easy read and I found myself re-reading passages several times because I wasn't entirely sure what was meant. That may well be me, but I suspect it's also the academic undertones that break through the heavy Teutonic jolliness.
I've been riding a few decades and I learnt a lot from persevering from this book. I better understand human foibles and I believe I am riding safer (and faster). I highly recommend it - just accept that you have to earn what you get out of it.
