Chickenhawk by Robert Mason
Helicopters in Vietnam. I’ve seen many recommendations for this book and eventually picked it up at the bookshop at Glastonbury festival where it was featured on a list of books recommended by Nick Mason of Pink Floyd. It’s an easy read (if anything which covers how people become desensitised to brutality can be) but, it just didn’t grab me the way I’d hoped. I’m intrigued to read the follow up though having enjoyed the ‘cocaine cowboys’ tale.
Triumphs and Turbulence – Chris Boardman
It’s an easy cycling read! Who knew! I can be endlessly fascinated by stories of how people successfully pulled projects together. The secret squirrel project and the management chaos at British Cycling stood out here.
Uncle Dynamite – PG Wodehouse
Like it. Everyone needs a little Uncle Fred in their lives.

The World of Cycling According to G – Geraint Thomas
Ok. It’s an easy light cycling read. It’s ok and met expectations.
Not a 100% success. Worked in some cornflower.

This is how I roll dog
