"The author has made an impact not only in his high tech field, but with his heart. Nobody does this! This act alone is proof this author is a genuine humanitarian, as well as a very entertaining writer unafraid to bare his guts for all to behold...Stories don't get more pithy and Zen than this one. Read the book; you'll see what we mean." -BMW Motorcycle Magazine, OTL
"It is, at times, humorous and comforting, beguilingly so, stripping bare the darker elements of our nature in such stark, raw detail as to force self-examination of one's belief systems, a forceful fact-check of our own personal and most trusted ideologies...Throughout the novel, Greg deals with themes not uncommon to many 'Gen-Xers' today: finding success at an early age only to ask themselves 'What now?'...Ultimately, this is one of the braver debuts I've seen in quite some time. Greg would likely call it 'calculated stupidity'. I call it a calculated success." - OED & R
"A story of true guilt and regret in such a powerful, dramatic setting ... sometimes difficult and depressing to read. But then, life itself is not always a bed of roses...it does tell it like it is." - Reader Views
"Montgomery's debut recalls aspects of Laurence Sterne, with an introspective protagonist both pursued and pursuing some great intangible, the destination secondary to the many digressions along the way ... The colloquial manner that Greg engages with his own challenges, from dropped bikes to sleepless nights, steers the book clear of heavy-handedness. Engrossing prose..." - Kirkus
. "Refreshing stuff for us bookish riders ... A little Zen [and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance], a little Jupiter's Travels, fans of Pirsig and Simon will feel right at home." -Cycle Gurus
