5.0 out of 5 stars Great read however old you are, 29 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Silver Sword (Kindle Edition)
Read this when I was at school and loved it over 40 years ago. Decided to revisit and enjoyed second time around. Reminder of tough times during end of the Second World War.

Very Fleming, well paced and good old fashioned plot. In keeping with original novels and set in early seventies, takes you back a bit!

4.0 out of 5 stars quite an expose of life inside the peloton, 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just when you thought you had heard it all, Bassons book really opens up the can of worms. I think from my read that doping in the current peloton is just as pervasive as it has ever been, nothing has changed. Quite depressing if you are interested in pure sport or is it simply turbo charging the peloton? Just glad I am not part of it and also stops me from doing serious amateur events as doping there is also huge issue.

4.0 out of 5 stars frank and personal review of a tough life on the bike, 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thoughtful and well written autobiography of Michaels life on the bike. Not just another doping revelation, but personal insight and perspective on life inside the peloton during the dark years. How he continued to ride after so many horrific crashes is a small miracle on its own. A good read as always from Mr Barry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing career, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Certainly an amazing career, didn't realise how much Sean won during his day. The book is ok, but wasn't enough real insight for me, a little like a list of wins and achievements with a little bit of personal stuff thrown in along the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple but effective, 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple and effective weather station. Forecast seems quite accurate too. Not many fancy features but with auto time set up it is very simple to get going, with the solar power feature hopefully saving on batteries over time

4.0 out of 5 stars Durano s solid tyre, 10 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A solid tyre, with reasonably good puncture protection. I have only had one puncture, which was on a torrential day during recent Southern Sportive. Apart from that, these tyres have no punctures during about 5000km of riding over last few months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 31 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased to replace my expensive and ageing sure headphones which cost 8 x price. To my surprise, they perform better acoustically, are well made and great for my main use which is indoor cycling on those cold rainy days we seem to get so many of.
