    None

    After hearing that there is an E-reader version of this book in existence I would probably rate it a 5 of 5. If they have incorporated some short vids of some of the techniques it would be one the best instructional tools out there.

    Pros
    Great advice and photos. Who better to speak to you about bike handling and riding skills than the great Brian Lopes. The trials moves section was a real eye opener.

    Cons
    A couple of videos breaking down some of the movers would really have helped visualize the process.

    I got this for my kindle; the eBook is even cheaper than the new version, and powered through it. I have started working on my skills as the book suggest, one at a time. I am using this book to slowly increase my skills and increase my fun factor. I recommend everyone, who does or wants to mountain bike, take a look at this book for a wealth of knowledge.

    Pros
    Inexpensive, full of advice and knowledge, includes pictures, interesting

    Cons
    None

    Great book for little tips and pointers here and there. It's a book you just need to open a couple times a week and read a few paragraphs. You will learn how to improve your riding little bits at a time.

    Pros
    Covers all mountain bike disciplines, thorough, easy to understand, tons of step-by-step pictures and peppered with a little humor.

    Cons
    Nope!

    A great book that covers a wide swath of riding types and skill sets from XC..Free..DH etc. Hoping it will help out on the desire to pump more speed out of the turns on race day.

    Pros
    Helps you avoid the Trial and Error..which can be painful on the error end. It will take seconds if not minutes off your rides..get you home in one piece and add a mountain of confidence.

    Cons
    Zilch

    My girl bough this book for me about a year ago and it definitely instilled confidence in my riding abilities. It not only makes you want to go out and ride but gives you ideas for a goal to accomplish on your ride as well. Pick up a copy and enjoy.

    Pros
    Nice pics to help describe the topics covered. Many riding styles covered. Sections on bike setup and handling.

    Cons
    Nada

    This book has been featured (by excerpt) in Mountain Bike Magazine, and with good reason. But instead of trying to track down the issues featuring excerpts from the book, just go out and buy it! It's worth the cover-price, and is a great anytime (bathroom especially!) read.

    Pros
    This book covers all the bases. It is full of great illustrations, diagrams, and anecdotes that do an awesome job of being informative & humorous, while also reinforcing the skills & techniques taught in the book.
    It is a great book for riders of all skill levels and disciplines.

    Cons
    Absolutely none!
