Good book for people getting into cycling.

I liked this book a lot. There is some information on about any subject you could think of that relates to cycling. It isn't the most in-depth on every subject, but I don't think that's the purpose of this book. I didn't read every chapter, I didn't need to worry about training, as I'm just getting started, but I can see that I will refer to this book again and again over the coming year as I progress in the sport. I would highly recommend this to someone looking for an overview of cycling to help them make decisions about what equipment they need and how to improve at their specific discipline. If you're a beginning cyclist - this is a great book.

solid book, maybe to expensive for what you get

This is good basic information that is covered in a number of other introductions to cycling. It is the kind of book that should be included free when you buy a new bike, like for years "Play It Pro" by San Sneed was given away when you bought a set of Wilson golf clubs. Is this book worth $8.00 with shipping? Not to me, there are a number of much better books in that price range, such as Cycling to 100. Great Book. Having said that, it is a solid little book that covers all the bases, you can have it read in an hour or two and give it to a friend.
Good tips for a noob like me

I'm just getting into this sport, and the tips in this book came in handy. Yes, I know how to ride a bike, but it's the little details it gave me that helped. Have you ever dropped your chain off the chainrings? You don't have to stop to fix it you know. I'd buy it, even if you're more experienced than the likes of me. I've taught some of my friends a trick or two. Sometimes I wish I didn't, they can still drop me pretty hard!
One Day at a Time
Other books are more informative

Zinn and the art of mountain bike maintenance includes everything this book does as far as fitting and essential knowledge plus has the information you need for fixing, maintaining and upgrading your bike. I didn't find much of anything useful in this book and I am a newbie rider.
Good information if you want to be a cyclist for life

It was helpful, but not exactly what I needed. I wanted something a little me basic, I didn't plan to enter the Tour De France or cycle my entire life. I hate to say it, but some of it was above my head.
