"Fast-paced, danger-filled, and thoroughly spellbinding...so rich, so unusual, and so aggressively written that readers will leave the book gasping for breath. This is a truly stunning book, completely original, a mixture of autobiography and philosophical treatise. Culley is a genuinely gifted writer, able to turn a seemingly ordinary bike ride into poetry in motion... We see the world through the eyes of a man hurtling through it at breakneck speed, and nothing we see, nothing we hear, is the way we expect it to be. One of the very best nonfiction books of recent years, and a treat for anyone gutsy enough to climb aboard."
--Booklist (starred review)
"Powerful and poetic."
--Library Journal (starred review)
"[An] exciting memoir...offering a rare inside view of a maligned but ubiquitous urban subculture...kinetic."

In any case this book is much better than I remembered and compelling on at least two levels. Curse word yeah!
The Immortal Class is a fun read. His prose starts off a little ackwardly in the first chapter but he finds his cadence quickly. A difficult book to put down.
I recommend this book and also commuting by bike (a great stress buster).
