You finish the book maybe understanding what Pinotti's (fairly uncontroversial) views are on various matters, but you don't feel you really understand him as a person, what drives him, etc. There is a small sectin on other riders but you learn very little about his relationships with people in and out of the peloton. No doubt he's a private person and doesn't want to upset anyone, but it just makes the book, well a bit dull, which is a real shame.
Look beyond that and just enjoy the book for an account of life inside the peloton from a long standing member of it. Very refreshing to read a book about a regular member, not one of the superstars, although Pinotti is definitely now one of the unsung heroes.
Shame there's no pictures.
and shows just why he is such a popular rider. This book is a relaxed and thoughtful story of events and shows all
the highs and lows of a riders life. I found it an enjoyable read amongst all the hype and abuse books being written
just now. Thoroughly recommend.

A good straight forward account of his pro career. Not to much technical stuff just honest account of the pro peleton.Published on 7 Jan. 2014 by ANNE HENDRIE
