The book covers a wide timeframe, with photos from as recent as 2003, and also plenty of black and white pictures from the 50s. It gives a fascinating insight into how road racing has changed over then years - basically same roads, different bikes!
My only critiscism of the book is that, as with all similar books, some of the double page spreads are a tad spoiled by the binding, but this is a small gripe, and certainly does not spoil the work.
If you have ever been to a road race, the book should bring back plenty of awesome memories. If you havent been, it will give you an insight into the magic of this sport. A little bit of madness in todays overly-sane world.
For book - The material quality (paper, binding, printing) I find excellent. The usual spread of photographs across the gutter - very prevalent these days. It would be far better to use a format to avoid this and place text alongside portrait format photographs.
Having said that , the contents are excellent and well presented. It is a book for the true enthusiast who can really appreciate the context and just what is going on.
However it is a book which could inspire others to take up two wheels only ! I recommend it to anyone with an interest in motorcycling.
