2.0 out of 5 stars Average book, 2 Feb 2014

This book was pretty average as far as content was concerned nothing new in here I hadn't already read about. The chapters ramble on too much as well.

The book I have read is on kindle and ends after 69% thereafter it's just index for the rest of the book. Content is just ok I feel it gives too many examples of things that happen just one would have done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Original whistle blower, 5 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading this book in 2014 is strange after what we know now but guys like kimmage were telling us back 20 years ago. Should be better known about but understandably the status quo had to be upheld by discrediting him. Very brave man to stick his neck out like this.

This review is from: Mid-life Cyclists (Kindle Edition)
Reading this there is a glimpse into how most of the cycling public live not like the professionals books which are good but are not how the other half of us live. Good book

Sean Kelly great guy all round and good book but too many spelling and grammatical errors to give it 4 or 5 stars. But the content was great.

Good book Millar now walks it how he talks it. Doesn't shy away from what he's done but is brave enough to talk and tackle the problems cycling has.
