The book helped me to prepare mentally and physically before each ride. There are boxes within the book that help give you tips or what aids to use. In addition, the book answers different problems and gives solutions to the rider that they may encounter during a lesson.

This book has lots of good information. It will give you more questions to ask your instructor and thus you will most likely get more out of your lessons. There are great stretches and exercises too, along with everything about riding lessons.
