"Good motorcycle books don't come along often enough. Books that take you to motorcycle netherworlds and make you look differently at life are even more rare." -- Bikeland "[The book's] deeper concern is with reinventing the self at midlife ... and the way that an avocation-even one that seems incomprehensible to outsiders-can give life meaning." -- Albany Times Union "Starred Review. Pierson's marvelously engaging account of her resumption of long-distance motorcycling after years of hiatus proves pure pleasure for the aficionado... Her stately, lyrical prose, profound respect for the machinery, and sympathy for the extreme adventurers will transport even the most unlikely readers." -- Publishers Weekly "Written in beautifully expressed prose, The Man offers by the bucket-load brilliant insights into what drives and motivates motorcyclists of all stripes... Pierson does a wonderful job at getting to the heart, the principles that define the joy of motorcycling... An absorbing, sanguine story that will be talked about for years to come, if not forever." -- Victor Cruz - BMW ON Magazine "Eloquent and probing, Pierson brings us back to the future with the reawakening of her love for motorcycles. Her riding days long dormant, Pierson credits meeting and befriending the charismatic distance rider, John Ryan with guiding her back to bikes and in the process, reminding her of who she is and what makes her sing. A beautiful story of passion and reclamation for anyone who has ever lost the way." -- Susan Richards, author of the bestselling Chosen by a Horse
