I'm a Rossi fan but this book has really widened my view of him... and not all for the good. Clearly he is an absolute star on and off the track but interestingly he did not come across as a very likeable bloke.

The reflections on Mike Hailwood's career and life are fantastic and this is one of the most balanced views of MotoGP that I have read. Excellent.

An interesting read and for that it receives four stars, the downside, for me is, the book contains absolutely no photographs, which, had it it would have lifted the book from 90% highly readable to 100% excellent...a regrettable oversight not including photographs... the one on the front cover is excellent.

A fantastic insight into the thoughts, actions and behind the scenes shenanigans of some of the world's greatest motorcyclists. I had difficulty putting it down and although it flitted between timelines, it was easy to follow the threads. Well worth reading, whether a bike racing enthusiast or not.

Got this for the wife, she's a big fan of Valentino Rossi. This has kept her quiet for days, its been absolute bliss. The downside though is that I appear to have lost my kindle, but the sacrifice has been worth it!

There are interesting details in this book but there are also some odd opinions on the motivation of the racers particularly regarding the danger and consequences of that danger.

Great book for motogp fans, a real treat. Gives a fascinating insight into Valentino Rossi and other racers without being a fanboy worship piece. Also very funny in places.

Bought as I recently finished another of Rick's books (that near death thing), and am thoroughly enjoying this too.Well paced and full of little details you could only know from having been around the racers at the time. Excellent read.
