I bought and read the Bike Snob's Book. It's pretty outstanding. Laugh out loud funny at times. Weiss just knows a good turn of the phrase. And unlike his generally excellent blog, the book is never too wordy.
Plus it's a beautifully produced book. Really beautiful. And a bargain, too. Plus being a good read... What else could you ask for?
I might write more about the book later, but for now let's just leave it with the fact that I had high expectations and was still very pleasantly surprised!
