    A great book

    This book provides one of the best studies of what makes a motorcycle champion. The complete package, man, mentality, training and drive. All those things also gave Wayne the strength to be the man he is today.

    A True Champion

    Was a wonderful and touching story.I have even more respect for Mr.Rainey now as a man than a rider.Book was well written but at times I felt it was a bit dis-jointed.Had a few fairly confusing jumps in time but overall was a great book.Well worth reading for any motorcycle buff.
