"Excellent ... compulsive reading...redresses the balance with considerable literary style and panache." (The Washing Machine Post)
"Don't be surprised if you fall in love with Max Leonard's book. A glorious celebration of coming last." (Brendan Gallagher thetour.co.uk)
"Thoughtful, properly researched and consistently entertaining" (Tim Moore)
"[A] lively account of largely forgotten men... It’s not easy to come up with an original angle on Le Tour, but with this rear view Leonard has managed the feat in style" (Simon Redfern Independent on Sunday)
"Brilliant... The stories of the lanternes rouges that Leonard picks out have real value, because the race's rear view can tell you much more than the angle we're all familiar with" (Michael Hutchinson Independent)

I had hoped for a fun but informative look at the tour from the other end, the book is informative but a bit dull.
This could be me just not getting into the book but normally I like to read books about the under dog continuing to push on against the odds but this book just didn't tell the story with any feeling,
This is the first book that I have given up on in years...
