Cooke's book is just as relevant to beginners as it is to those with loftier ambitions. This glossy little manual could replace a gym membership as the best way to get fit in the new year. --The Times
If you want to take up cycling, Cycle for Life has all the info you need. --Women's Fitness

I saved over £10 on the new price and having read a few of the chapters I would have gladly paid the full price!
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is just starting out in the world of cycling or looking to advance their skills.
There is an introduction to different types of bike from the basics to the component parts.
A set of training programmes builds up from a low enough level to suit whatever fitness level you start from, along with guidance about riding for fitness and good non-cycling exercises.
There is also dietary advice, probably as much as in many dedicated diet books!
Nicole also talks about racing, preparing and participating. All in all there is a lot in this book. For an expert that probably means it wouldn't be in depth enough, but I'm no expert.
