Why read it when you can watch the film...

Although I did that with Charlottes Web at school, didn't get the best book report score...

the film sucked compared to the book, plus the book gives you tips.

Charlie and Ewan did it with a load of backup , and made a film and forutne no doubt, Sam did it partly alone and partly with the girlfreind he found on the way around over 8 years , he has written 4 books about it and published them himself , and they are bloody briliant , oh and he lives in Exeter now

Ring of Fire by Rick Broadbent is a good read. Well funny in places, Hopper, Rossi and a few others rolling Max Biaggi's Smart car over just to pi** him off !

Phil Macallen - Super Mac. Helps if you went to the TT during the 90's but hilarious and sad reading about Irish road racing.

About to read it for a 3rd time.


John Britten book is also very interesting but is quite a heavy read. Totally random suggestion, Billy Lane Chop Fiction, coffee table type book as many pictures but the read is quite interesting.
