4.0 out of 5 stars Dominican boys seem to have no trouble finding girls, but never seem to know when they're onto a good thing, 1 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not an uplifting or inspiring story;
a couple of brothers from the Dominican Republic, growing up on the east coast of the US, have a constant flow of women in their lives, but whenever a good one comes along, they seem to mess things up. The book captures the atmosphere and the norms of their cultural group and family beautifully; you feel you really are there hanging on the porch with them watching the girls go by.

An interesting and involving insight into a culture where sex and relationships are far more readily available than anything I have ever experienced. As the central character ages, he realises that what he has lost is not easily replaced, and that his own potential for happiness has been limited by his behaviour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some excellent advice, mainly for serious racers, 13 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very detailed and comprehensive book, aimed primarily at people who race seriously.
There is plenty of information to help you design your own training schedule around your own needs and abilities.
For the recreational cyclist, or someone like me who is interested primarily in long-distance semi-competitive events, much of this material is more details and sophisticated than necessary - I won't be making a detailed training schedule just yet!
But some of the advice and the general principles of training & recovery are very useful, and I may come back to this book again as a reference source in future.

Short, simple, cheap and to the point. Gives some good advice on how to make good use of an indoor trainer, without blowing your mind with science!

5.0 out of 5 stars A real adventure for body and soul, 29 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Important warning: I am an old friend of the author and joined him for part of this journey, so my review is favorably biased!

This is a heart-warming personal story of a man exploring a beautiful part of the world on a new/old motorcycle. Ben's writing style could be described as home-spun, it is not the polished work of a professional writer, but that adds to the charm...the reader travels with him, like a virtual pillion, seeing what Ben sees, engaging with the people he meets on the way, feeling what he feels.
I feel very privileged to have been able to join Ben for part of this journey...it was physically tough at times, but also intensely enjoyable and exciting, and the companionship which Ben and I shared for those couple of weeks was a feeling I will cherish the rest of my days!
Good work Ben, look forward to reading Part 2!
