The Carin’ Sharin’ Chronicles 10th anniversary edition
N.B. THIS IS THE SAME BOOK IN A DIFFERENT WRAPPER!
Just so we’re absolutely clear up front, as the warning above spells out, this isn’t really a special edition – in fact it’s not even a second edition. All of the cock-ups and typos that managed to sneak past our rigorous proof reading team a decade ago are still there, nestled embarrassingly inside this shiny new cover!
The chapters in this book were already seven or eight years old when it was published in November 2008; and many if not most of the events they refer to actually took place a couple of decades before they were written. But as Dave says in ‘The Spring Of My Discontent’:

We won’t bother to repeat everything that’s written on the original cover (it’s easy enough to peel off this wraparound and read it for yourself); instead we’ll share a review by a thoroughly satisfied Amazon customer
***** Through many years of bike riding as a courier and an obvious student of the University of Life, he has a wonderful gift of being able to communicate in a way that is both light-hearted and serious, when necessary. His very coherent arguments, covering a wide variety of biking and even non-biking issues will often have you grinning from ear-to-ear; or nodding your head in agreement – at what is plainly quite obvious only you’d never thought about things that way before. His years of recollections of biking experiences and anecdotes are brought to life and you are sure to find them gently amusing – a nice easy read – John S
If you’ve managed to get through the last ten years without reading DG’s Chronicles, don’t you think that it’s about time you rectified that situation?
