The details of the climbs are average with very little detail, the maps are more like sketches and the dialogue, which is brilliant, reads like a magazine article, which is great if you're reading a magazine, but every time I return to it it lacks any real substance for the climb in question, just the authors journalistic approach to the specific climb on a specific day (he is a good journailist).
Ultimately the book fails to deliver, it needs more detail on the routes (lets be honest, there's a lot of folk need to make sure they hit the right strava section, this book will not help you), the narrative would be better off as an historic account rather than a magazine account and more information on which side to approach from and combinations of hills, milestones etc would be useful.
Basically the book is in no man's land, it falls in between practical guide book and glossy informative overview of Europe's great climbs.
Excellent and a must-have guide and interesting reading even for other road users, I would venture to say
