Uh-Oh . . . 'Sad' Warning . . .




I use a couple of on-line dscussion forums, and on one the subject of 'advanced' books came up, during which I mentioned 'old', 'new', and 'very new' Roadcraft, the police training manual.

I was asked which particular 'old' (also known as 'The Blue Book') one I meant, as that person had three versions.

So I opened the 'training' cupboard and started to get out the book collection . . .

What about the two Twist of the Wrist books ? :)

Ah . . . Twist & TOTW2.

Excellent books - I read Twist when it first appeared, in the 80s, using the local library copy! Twist 2 I read soon after it appeared - but can't remember if that was borrowed or library. I also have the Twist video.

'Soft Science' is . . . 'Californian', and like the other books (esp. '1'), it needs some thought before applying to road riding.

As advice for road riders, get '2' first, then '1', then . . . wait some time . . and perhaps get Soft Science.

I'm fully with you on the two Twist books. I have both, but I don't think I've read 1. I go back to 2 every few months.
