The book is excellent for anyone intersted in bicycle touring. It has very practical information that anyone can understand from selecting a bike, proper bike fitting, bike ,maintenance, clothing and gear, trip planning, and more. It's a great reference book!
Best money I could have spent on 'how to tour.'

When I look back on all the books I have read/studied on cross country touring over the last 12 years this is the best by far....it has the combination of breath, depth and accuracy I have not seen elsewhere.
