I really like it. Great bike stories from a legend. He does not touch the doping subject at all, and generally this is not a controversial tale. Very well performed and it is a very entertaining listen. Highly recommend.
Fun listen for a fat and slow weekend cyclist. You should pick it up soon.
What made the experience of listening to Sean Yates: It's All About the Bike the most enjoyable?
Hearing the life story of an iconic racing cyclist and director sportif, was really interesting. Yates is really good (and knows it), but this didn't sound big-headed, and he appeared more than aware of his shortcomings as well as his assets.
What did you like best about this story?
The no-nonsense style of writing
How could the performance have been better?
This is a book with a very limited potential readership, i.e. cyclists or people interested in cycle racing. The publisher/actor (who knows who should take care of this?) had made absolutely no effort to research the pronunciation of the names of people, places and events. This is just sloppy and unprofessional and I would have felt short-changed had I paid full price for the audiobook. As it was, it was so bad that it became laughable and actually added a comedy dimension to the whole thing. If you're precious about this sort of thing, then this is definitely not the book for you.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Despite the subject matter, this is a sub-standard product and the publishers should hang their heads in shame.

Didn't mention his doping past once, quoted his mantra as being paid for an honest day's work. Conceited and self-congratulatory.
