Audible Editor Reviews

Coach Dave Brailsford has been responsible for bringing British cycling to world dominance, overseeing victories in the 2012 and 2013 Tour de France. This behind-the-scenes look at his career considers his management style, psychology, and philosophy, focusing on his response to doping and other crises during his term at the helm of Team Sky. Cycling writer (and able, if sedate, narrator) Roger Moore looks at Brailsford's response to these challenges, including his reliance on confidants and management manuals. A short but intimate look at an elusive figure making a major dent in the sports world today.

Publisher's Summary

Dave Brailsford has spearheaded the track cycling revolution in Britain, helping turn the nation into a superpower. He is also head of Team Sky and oversaw Bradley Wiggins' victory at the 2012 Tour de France. But who is the man behind the mask?

This is a portrait of one of the most enigmatic presences in world sport; an exploration of his background, a unique insight into the formation of his methodology and an analysis of how he has forged a new path in a sport riven with controversy.

    "Brilliant short book"

    This was an excellent short insight into the man and the hidden mechanics of the team. Well worth a listen.

    "interesting if short story"

    Brief but interesting and informative listen. Not the most enthralling narrative, but good value

    "Ok for the price"

    I paid less than £2 for this. I think that's a fair price I certainly wouldn't have wanted to pay any more.

    For me this is worth a listen but doesn't contain the detail I would like.

    "Nonsense
    "

    Complete waste of time and money. They shouldn't be selling articles as audiobooks. Also totally unsuccessful as an sports book.

    "Not much about aggregation of marginal gains"

    Downloaded to learn more about marginal gains, but was disappointed. It was worth a listen for a few inspirational snippets.
