"This book is a milestone in helping people to better understand how racing motorcycles work ... If this book had been around when I started in MotoGP, it would have saved me a lot of time and stress. Not to mention arguments!"
Tom O'Kane. Senior MotoGP™ engineer

"I love the tuning fork bike and the simple way you describe things. This book should be required reading for young and aspiring engineers."

"Been reading your book, started with the fundamentals section, very interesting and well written in the way you have split the bike into sections. Works for technical people and laymen as well."
