I bought this specific book after reading about it in both, Mountain Bike Action Magazine and Bicycling Magazine. The book is written in an easy-to-follow format that is perfect for someone who wants to learn basic and advanced mountain bike maintenance. I look at this way, "If you only have the money to buy one book on maintaining your mountain bike, buy this one!"

I have no doubt this book is as good as everyone says it is. It was recommended by my local bike repair shop as the ultimate in bike repair. HOWEVER, THIS BOOK IS NOT A HARDCOVER BOOK. IT IS A NICE PAPERBACK. I do not even think they sell this in a hardback. I called and received 10% of the purchase price back since the website erroneously listed this as a hardcover (I wish it did come in that format).
