Nick is among the very best writers about motorcycling, ever, up there with Don Canet and Kevin Cameron (no point in ranking them subjectively, because all three are excellent). He is also a champion racer, primarily on 250s. Having ridden on the road with him, I attest to his smooth, skilled way of proceeding, and his concern for safety.
This book should be required reading for every rider who puts a wheel on road or track. Once read, it should be memorized and used as the core belief set that will make a rider quicker and safer, and every ride more enjoyable, including anyone else who is along for the pleasure of it. No one should dare suggest that he or she is 'above it,' knows better and 'doesn't need' the lessons Ienatsch teaches. We all do. This book will, among other things, keep a rider alive to ride again and enjoy one of the most interesting and pleasurable ways to get down the road devised by Man.
Don't argue with me. Get it.
PS One of life's ironies is that Ienatsch, one of the best writers on motorcycling who ever puts finger to keyboard, doesn't have a regular gig and is only read intermittently in CYCLE WORLD. Let's hope that changes, soon.
I guess I was hoping for a "Twist of the Wrist 2" meets "Total Control..." meets "Sportbike Performance Handbook" type of book. Not even close. Still, I believe this is a very high quality piece of literature that can be enjoyed by both entry level and experienced riders alike.
Perhaps if you've raced a few years or spent a few hundred hours on the track you might find this book a little thin. Of course you would probably find most instructional books a bit thin.
For the rest of us this book is the best of it's class in my opinion. If you can do everything this book so clearly describes then you ARE a good rider. Fast. Safe. Smooth.

Great book. Lots of big glossy pictures of current sport bikes. I consider it a resource book. I keep re-reading it and applying the lessons in the canyons. Read morePublished on July 15 2004 by anthony san andres
