About this Item Dispatched, from the UK, within 48 hours of ordering. Though second-hand, the book is still in very good shape. Minimal signs of usage may include very minor creasing on the cover or on the spine. About this title Synopsis: Few people know the controversial world of professional cycling like Bradley Wiggins. Store Description Reuseabook is an established second hand book seller. An ethical an environmentally concious business we look forward to providing you with a good read.
Reusabook is committed to providing each customer with the highest standard of customer service. Certainly worth reading. But ultimately…if I were to reccomend a cycling book to anyone then Matt Seaton's Excape Artist is head and shoulders above any other sports book I've ever read. The first few pages make my hair stand on end even now.
I thought Cav's book was rubbish TBH. I may skip to a later section and give that a whirl, but I wouldn't rush out to buy it or any other cycling biography. On a similar note, but a different sport, Jackie Stewart's Autobiography is surprisingly good. It wasn't necessarily a criticism of Hoy, just Richard Moore's book and it's peculiar style. The problem with a very professional approach as opposed to a destructive, cavalier approach is that there is little in the way of flair or tension to produce amusing anecdotes.
Think Tiger Woods golfing rather than his newly-discovered lady hobby as opposed to James Hunt. These two are really good.
In Pursuit Of Glory
Autobiographical, but "just" of a 4 year cycle round the world. Road cycling seem to attract more than its fair share of tortured souls. I thought it was a thin idea re-hashed to make it into book length. Very poor, in my view. I enjoyed Rough Ride much more.

Not a conventional autobiog, but a beatifully written and exquisitely observed series of vignettes on cycling. Not strictly an autobiography, but Dervla Murphy's travelogue is an amazing and humbling read — totally engrossing. Here it is here. Tells the story of Coppi who apparently was never caught by the peleton once he made a break and also gives a very interesting insight into Italian culture through the 40s and 50s.
I was reading it whilst my daughter was in an incubator and used to bore her rigid about coppi each day. Mat Hoffman's autobiography is pretty good. I think it's called "Ride of my Life" or something like that.
Another one for the Escape Artist. Riding through the Storm — Geoff Thomas' book about his battle with cancer and his ride round the TdF route is excellent, though it obviously has a fair bit of his football career as well.

Munqe-chick Member. Other book is Chris Hoys, I read that last Xmas. Good read about everything up to Beijing. One more kilometre and we'll be in the showers.
Thurman Merman Member. Inspiring, and actually got me into road-racing. The escape artist is very good.
