    It's really difficult to put out books for things like this as they quickly become or seem dated. The first few chapters discuss choosing and/or setting up your bike. There is mention of 29ers with a bit of attitude such as "it's kind of a new thing, we'll see how it shakes out". We'll, I think we see how it did and now we've gotten to the point where 650b is really the standard along with 29 in certain situations. The basic concepts here are applicable no matter if you're talking mountain bikes, rally cars, motorcycles, BMX or any other form of racing. Apex radius turns, braking, etc. Good book, but if you grew up riding BMX and/or motorcycles, you should know most of this already. This hasn't stopped me from enjoying the book though.

    Pros
    Good basic info.
    Written with a sense of humor.
    Pics help with descriptions.

    Cons
    It's easy to become dated quickly.
