So poorly written it was distracting
My first question is, do college professors really talk like this, let alone write like this? I have to admit, I only downloaded and read the sample, so perhaps my opinion is based on a limited perspective. Mind you, I really wanted to like it and to be inspired, but I just couldn't get past the author's writing style. Case in point, his constant use of the word 'like' (e.g. I mean, like, I thought it was listening to a valley girl talking). I know I sound hyper-critical, and maybe I am. I'm just saying it was a deal-breaker for me and got in the way of what would otherwise have been a very inspirational story.

A book is not a blog.
This is what you get from an English professor these days? I'm glad he was able to change his life for the better through cycling. But with the lack of structure I can't tell if it's a how-to or just a weak biography. Less than half way through I wanted my money back because I felt like I could have read all of it on his blog. That's lazy, especially for a professor.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
