Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Learned a lot about Cadel. He's able to explain so much. He was able to explain so much of the truth behind all the press coverage and stories during his racing. Thanks Cadel for writing it.
What does Alan King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He has the Australian accent. I feel like Cadel's talking to me.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Cycling to be better than the print version?
Sure, it's long, but I didn't find it tediously long at all. The length gives Evans the opportunity to tell the story of his professional riding career in detail. Without that detail, I do not think the book would be nearly as good. Do you have to be a cyclist or cycling fan to enjoy this book? Probably. It IS, after all, a book about cycling (and a very detailed one at that!). But the book itself is pretty great. It's not a work of timeless literature. There are times when the writing is a bit cliche.But it is certainly well written, and Evans comes across as a thoughtful, sincere person with a true passion for his profession. He is also very fair to the many other cyclists (and non-cyclists) that we writes about in the book. There are no grudges, there is no defamation, yet he is candid and honest about his feelings toward and about others. I really learned a lot about professional cycling, also, which was a nice bonus. And, of course, the sections about the races themselves are fabulous.Highly recommended for cycling fans! Thanks, Cadel!
What about Alan King’s performance did you like?
loved it, loved listening to the amazing stuff that's happened in his life of cycling and beyond..
Thorough, insightful, interesting: just about as inspirational a cyclist as it is possible to be, with none of the introvert self-publicity of most riders’ biographies.
