I heartily recommend the book, "Inside The Postal Bus"

Although I just started reading the book this afternoon, and am only 50 pages into the book, I know that any of you who either race or are race fans will enjoy the book.

As an aside, when I went to order a copy, Amazon was charging list price, and Barnes & Noble was discounting it.

It was just released this month.

Now back to the book....

I read it a few weeks ago and passed it along to a buddy. It was pretty good and interesting to read about how those guys act on the road and what-not. I loved the part about "anger is not a gift"... talk about some motivation.

it's not the most well written book, but hey, he's a cyclist not a novelist... still very entertaining!

Michael Barry, a member of the team wrote it. No, it won't win any pulizter prizes for writing prowess but it is very amusing to guys/gals with our interest in racing/cycling.

Based on the cover I thought it might be a kid's book. Is it?
