This is a FANTASTIC look at mountain bike skills. I'm rusty from a long layoff, and in addition to getting out and just *riding*, this book has been very inspirational and educational to me. There's a ton of useful information in here that I just didn't learn by osmosis when I was riding super regularly, as well as some details that have just changed as bikes and trails change.

This will be on my bookshelf for a long time to come, and I'll recommend it broadly to anybody I know who's a mountain biker.
