From the book reviews: "This book tackles a complicated area of exercise science - biomechanics -- and interprets many of the principles in an understandable way in the context of cycling. ... this book will benefit readers interested in biomechanics and the sport of cycling the most. ... This is a unique book. It is quite informative and well-supported by the literature from the field of exercise science and biomechanics." (Erik H. Vanlterson, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2014)
