This small book looks like one of those small books received as a graduation present. If a person did receive it, s/he might smile politely, and express gratitude while secretly wishing they had received cash instead. It would be a shame if the recipient never read it, because this book contains nuggets of wisdom beneficial to anyone looking to succeed in the workplace, improve on the sports field, or become a better musician.

This book can be easily skimmed (which is what I did), stopping on the tips that speak most to the reader. The author outlines 52 different tips, with a short explanation of each. Examples include:

- Don't fall for the prodigy myth
- Practicing a bit each day is better than practicing for an hour once a week
- Give a new skill a minimum of 8 weeks
- Stop before you're exhausted
- Pay attention immediately after you've made a mistake

Overall a good, short primer for those who enjoy productivity/self-improvement reads

Fascinating to a point, then it gets a little lost like some of the riders.

Really good read and great insight into a very intriguing sport.

Lots of interesting characters...both riders and those who are on the side of the road. Some are good; some, not so good.

A must read for any cyclist or anyone trying to understand bicycle racing. A good read for anyone interested in exploring another aspect of the sports entertainment industry, associated worldwide organizations, and entwining politics.
