However I was left wanting. The book has some excellent information and great pictures. What it lacks is in depth information and technical explanations. For example Andy explains so little about "Counter steering" in the cornering chapter, minimal info. on what suspension actually does or trouble shooting suspension problems.
It's not really a "Moto GP manual" but more of a documentry of what some Moto GP, 125 and 250 GP riders do. If you were a Moto GP rider I doubt this book would help. It's more of an entertainment book rather than a true technique manual. Which of course would be it's major reader target audience. I found Keith Code's Twist of the Wrist more in depth than this book and much more beneficial to a rider. Another thing that I found a bit annoying was Andy's constant "Thomas Luthi" plug (whom he coached).
The book is good and does have lots of good information and is a good read. I probably just wanted a lot more high tech info due to it's title!
