Format: Paperback
There's no doubt the photography and writing are insightful, original and interesting. But the print quality of this edition is awful.The first and second editions are far better; featuring beautiful spot gold type and duotones - and worth paying a bit more for. Simply putting a new cover image on the book and reprinting it cheaply hasn't done the original justice...

I had hoped for a little more detail / insight, to that end I am enjoying Charlie Wegelius' book more. That said, it is a lovely book - layout, paper, photos etc. As a cycling fan, I feel that it is one of those books that romantics / purists would insist is on your bookshelf - an expensive attitude to adopt. That said, I do recommend it if you've got a few quid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome. Its "50 Shades of Grey" for the Roadie 22 Feb. 2014
By BrianMcG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Quite simply one of the best books about cycling that isn't a training book. But its got some of that in there also, but not like you think.

Its really nice to get a glimpse of what its really like in the peleton. The writing is great and does a fantastic job of describing events as if you were there.

Every time I begin reading a page I want to put the book down and go for a ride.

3.0 out of 5 stars Greak Book but print too light 21 Dec. 2012
By James Scalise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like the book very much. I do have a problem with the print quality. It is too light which makes it hard to read.
