Looks like the books contains some really interesting stuff. I’ll definitely check it out. On another note, I’ve just discovered your site. Looks like LOTS of interesting stuff. I’ll be back!
Many thanks for the heads up about my forthcoming book. It looks to me like the sampler you have received includes spreads written and designed before I got involved in the project. The finished book includes many references to reserach by engineers, physiologists and scientist, with some great graphics to make them more readily understood. There are some equations but, as you say, it’s not an engineer’s handbook. It’s the cycling science book for the rest of us. To get a taste, follow @CyclingScience1
Hi Max, thanks for the comment and clarification. I’m looking forward to reading your complete book when it becomes available.

Ah, Max! I trust the work prepared by Richard McAinsh of 3T will have proved helpful in preparing your book. I look forward to reading it and adding it to the supremely useful ‘Bicycling Science’ mentioned by Richard Hallett above.
Hi Martin, I, too, am looking forward to seeing the finished book. The US edition goes to press very shortly and is due on sale 2 Nov. Richard McAinsh’s work for 3T was very interesting. I’m not an engineer or physicist but I can only admire appreciate the depth and scope of ‘Bicycling Science’. In the meantime, I’m constantly coming across new research into all areas of science and cycling and tweeting it @CyclingScience1.
