Motorcycling and Street
I liked his notion of having a 10-dollar bill to spend on attention, and then figuring out what you want to spend it on. But much of the book seems so basic that there isn't much additional knowledge a serious student can glean from it. (This isn't true for Twist II; see below).
Most of his method involves minutely dissecting every aspect of racing, and then analyzing it to see where you can improve. This isn't a technique that works for me. My suggestion is to bypass this book and purchase Twist II, which captures everything in this book, yet is much more useful to the street rider intent on improving their skills.
