This review is from: A Race for Madmen (Hardcover)How can you review a book without reading it? Obviously READER is a very important person who thinks his views really need to be read even though he doesn't need to read a book to review it. And he's so important that he hasn't even got the guts to say who he is! My parents taught me that if you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all.
This book is not a run of the mill history of the Tour. It comes from the heart of a man who has lived on the edge of cycling all his life and with tragic results to his family. And yet he still loves everything about cycling with a passion.
It's full of stories most of us have never heard before and photo's that most of us have never seen before. It's funny and sad in places but it's very entertaining and an easy book to read, well worth the money.
I sure all you normal people will enjoy a really good read and then you can speak with knowledge.
