The Escape Artist 

It's a book by Matt Seaton. It's a brief, but superb book. I think it's the best look inside the mind of an amateur cyclist I'm ever likely to read. Insights like the author's description of the failure of his will to win are dead-on. His discussion of how his bike racing meshes (rather badly) with his domestic life is exactly right. I shall not say more. Read the review. Go get the book.

Oh, I'll say one more thing, but it's merely cheeky: no matter how well the author writes, how much of a saddo do you have to be, no matter what your excuse, to have held a Communist Party card in 1989?
