This book needs a little translation for UK readers
on 8 July 1999
The book has plenty of very good advice, but has quite a bit of non essential information for UK readers. A whole chapter for example, trying to convince readers to wear a helmet! The illustrations are very good, but they are of course back to front for UK roads. There is a chapter on the physics of traction and balance, which though very informative to someone used to vector diagrams, is relied upon a little too much in this and later chapters, when explaining cornering techniques. Overall though, I learned quite a lot from this book and can recommend it. There is a very good chapter describing counter steering, which is well written and illustrated.
