Michael has a lovely writing style and spends time bringing the reader up to speed with his emotions and thoughts. But, if you're looking for an in-depth, warts and all revelation about life in the pro peloton then you may be disappointed. He writes with flair but doesn't seem to get into the real meat of the problems or of the situation. I also found the book to be slightly confusing with regards to some of the timings mentioned - maybe just me, but Michael seemed to jump forwards and back in time which left me feeling that I wasn't on a linear path with the memories and stories that he recounted. Worth a read if you're a cycling fan, but there are deeper, more engaging cycling reads out there.
