The Adrian Hell Series: Books 1-3 (Adrian Hell Collection)
The Adrian Hell Series: Books 1-3 (Adrian Hell Collection)
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars DEFINITELY an author to follow!!!, 8 July 2016
So far, only read book one of the series, but it is one of those books that I couldn't put down. I know that's a cliché as far as books are concerned but this really was superb. Well written, an easy to follow plot and a good solid main character. HIGHLY recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars It was worth the wait, 8 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having purchased this in episodes as they became available, l was happy but also sad when the final part was released. Happy, as I have thoroughky enjoyed this novel but sad that it was concluded. When it is released as one complete novel it should be VERY well received. I loved this and would recommend it to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT PRODUCT FROM TRUSTED SELLER, 20 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't fault either the seller or the product. The product was delivered very quickly and in brilliant packaging. The product....awesome. Very sturdy when fitted in the rails. The sight took about 5 minutes to centre in and then I managed to consistently get 3" groups on a target from 15m. I bought it for my airsoft M4A1; the scope looks the part and does the job perfectly! Many thanks Hawks Tech!!!!

I had this book - the first edition - when I was 3 or 4 and loved it. Now 54years later I have been given another copy and it's pure, wonderful nostalgia!

The Rules: The Way of the Cycling Disciple
The Rules: The Way of the Cycling Disciple
by Frank Strack
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a book that cyclists must read, 5 Aug. 2013
I have a collection of cycling books that now dominates my bookshelves with topics ranging from biographies to race histories to cycling humour.
This book is without a doubt a definite keeper, it will be referred to on a regular basis and it will always be with a wry smile on my face.
"The Rules" can be seen by some as tongue in cheek commentary on aspects of cycling but behind every rule thought has been put into it
Rule #28 discusses socks and what colour they should be. A bit anal I thought but was then told by a good friend that when he used to ride time-trials you HAD to wear white socks, ride without socks or not ride.
The rules aren't in chronological order but are grouped by category - The Disciple, The Ride, The Bike and so on - and make for a very entertaining and thought provoking read. Some rules are aesthetically based some are psychologically based
My favourite rule is rule# 5. Since applying this rule to my own cycling, I have done better times and enjoyed the ride more.
Some people will no doubt see this book as merely a cycling parody and something to be flicked through in a book shop and then put down as it for someone else. However there's plenty in this book for any cyclist to get their teeth into and have a laugh at themselves when they think "Oh my god....I do that".... But there's also the flip side of "Yeah...maybe I SHOULD do that"
Definitely a recommended read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Similar but not the same!, 19 Jan. 2013
Having been reading cycling books for some years, I have already read David Walsh's book "From Lance to Landis" and it was this that really made me doubt that Lance had ridden clean.
With the recent revelations and Tyler Hamilton's book - which I consider to be a GREAT read - I was expecting the new book by David Walsh to be something bigger and better than I had read by him before
Unfortunately having just re-read his other book recently I was almost questioning as to whether I had accidentally picked it up again instead of "7 Deadly Sins". It goes over almost all of the points in the other book in about the same sort of length and then when I was getting near the end of the book wondering what the difference was, I found out. There are a few brief notes about recent disclosures, work by the USADA and that's about it.
If you haven't read "From Lance to Landis" save your money and buy this one
It IS well written, it gives a GREAT insight into the people who were affected by Lance throughout his career and I think that anyone interested in that era of cycling will love it
The only reason I marked it down was that so much of it was a rehash - admittedly with a few bits added - of his previous book I felt a bit cheated.
