I'm pretty sure 2 stroke tuning has moved on since this book was written but still gives a good background in the basics, a lot of the examples seem to be on old engines (does not really matter though I guess).
One thing I did learn from the book is I do not have enough money to be able to DIY tune a 2 stroke, the main thing I was interested in finding out about was porting with a view to doing some port tuning myself but this book has highlighted I am more likely to mess it up than make an improvement, I cannot afford the dyno runs and spare cylinders that would be required to actually make some headway in this complicated area.
So in summary if you want to learn a bit about 2 strokes then buy the book, if you want to tune your own 2 stroke I would recommend finding a specialist for your bike/engine unless you have loads of ££££ and time on your hands.
The book is based on practical know-how and experience. It has some theory (and mathematical equations), but is also full of common sense. Great read and lots on insight
