To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
In the early sixties, when I dreamed of being in the Tour de France (A very strange dream for an American youngster in 1963!) this book was my best friend. I am sure I read it a dozen times. I picked up a copy recently and 50 years later some of the excitement - along with some great memories - were still there for me. I never made it to the Tour although I did win the State junior championship one year - and maman was very proud of me, also.
Read this as a schoolboy in the 60's and it fired my lifelong enthusiasm for cycling, including amateur racing in my younger days. Excellent read and glad I was able to get a copy through Amazon to relive those days.
