A great read from start to finish. You don't need to be a biker to appreciate the magnitude of the effort, as the book details more "behind the scenes" dramas than any sanctioned video ever would.
After reading this, you'll understand the quote at the end which goes (and I might be para-phrasing) "if you're thinking about doing the Dakar, you never will. For the people who enter the race, there never is any question."
The way Charlie has written the book takes you through every emotion he and the crew experience as if you were there yourself, the high's, the low's, the determination, the exhaustion, everythings there.
It's an amazing book written by incredible people about an awe inspiring event.
Read this book because, it is that good!
