5.0 out of 5 stars The finest instructional book I have ever read., 27 Feb. 2010
This review is from: The Bicycle Wheel (Hardcover)
I read this book 25 years ago when I was 13. Despite not being the brightest candle on the cake at 13, within hours of reading this book, I was successfully building wheels to perfection. Jobst Brandt's ability to explain in a thorough, yet easy to understand way how to build accurately centred and aligned wheels is nothing short of genius. I was never a great achiever in maths at school, or any other subject for that matter, but I used what I had learned in this book for a maths project, which not only got an A+, but was also used by my maths teacher as an example to teach the rest of the class. This book should not only be read by those wishing to learn the art of wheel building, but should also be read by anyone looking to write any kind of instructional book, as it really sets the standard as to how it should be done. BRILLIANT!
