Strengths:    Good illustrations

Weaknesses:    Many

Bottom Line:   
This is the goofiest book on mountain biking I've ever read. Only redeeming feature is that it has good illustrations, but in hindsight, they are the only thing that got me through this thing. If you want to read a good book on technique, read Ned's "Mountain Bike Like a Champion." Clear, concise and relevant.

good basic skills

maybe too basic

Bottom Line:   
This is a good book. I thought that maybe the skills covered were too basic for my needs, but his other book; Twist of the Wrist along with Kenny Roberts Road Racing Techniques are awesome motorcycle racing books. A Gear Higher is like Twist of the Wrist. Probably the most applicable techniques are picking the right line & proper use of the brakes in respect to the location of the rider on the trail/road. Great book for roadies since it seems most have never raced motorcycles. Since there are few books on bikes, this is a cool book to add to the collection.
