12 Apr Book Review: The Man Who Would Stop at Nothing
I recently stumbled across this book while perusing my local book shop. I seem to be a sucker for almost anything motorcycle related, especially books – or should I say Motorcycle travel stories.
I’ve read most of the published print involving motorcycle travels. Some stand out as enjoyable reads, others are just another log of adventure.
Now I am only half way through “The Man Who…” but I find Ms. Holbrook Pierson’s writing has drawn me in as she describes what most of us riders know and feel but never put into words. She also takes us on a trip that some riders know about but most of us never imagine doing – the long-distance ride. More specifically, the Iron-Butt riders of the US (11,000 mi. in 11 days).
A very intriguing and enjoyable read so far.
Melissa Holbrook Pierson has written other books including a previous motorcycle related story “The Perfect Vehicle: What is it About Motorcycles” which is on my bookshelf waiting to be read.
If you enjoy a good motorcycle tale or just want to know more on that particular subject I would suggest this read. I can’t wait to finish it and get on to her other book.
