I like this book because it gives detailed descriptions on how to maintain your bicycle. There are plenty of pictures that help illiustrate what the author is talking about. The book helps you to learn about how each part works that way it will be easier to work on those parts.
Sometimes the book will mention about a certain tool but it won't have a picture of what the tool actually looks like.
I recommend this book for anyone. It is a good reference for advanced people and they may pick up a few things as well. I would suggest this more for people new to cycling because it will help you learn about the importance of bike maintenance. And it will familiarize you with the parts of other types of bikes.
