1986 Tour de France winner LeMond, the only American to win this grueling three-week stage race and one of the few Americans to compete on a par with European riders, has produced one of the best bicycling books of the decade. There are many "Complete Books" or "Guides" available (e.g., John Howard's The Cyclist's Companion , LJ 6/15/84; Michael Shermer's Sport Cycling , LJ 7/85), but this one is by far the most comprehensive. It is excellent for those who want to purchase a bike (with an exhaustive chapter on fitting the bike), race, ride for fun, and perform minor maintenance. It also has interesting stories by and about LeMond and is well illustrated. If you buy one bicycling book this year, this should be it. Highly recommended. Thomas K. Fry, UCLA Libs.
