"Cameron," writes Dean Adams on SuperbikePlanet.com, "is easily one of the most well read and well known motojourno scribes on the planet. His column--TDC--is read with interest each month by everyone who fancies himself a serious mover or shaker or even serious enthusiast. From Marlboro Roberts mechanics in Europe to a quiet woodworker in LaCrosse Wisconsin, all read his columns in Cycle World and Motorcycle International, addicted to the imagery." Enthusiasts, aficionados, and addicts alike will find something to celebrate and plenty to simply enjoy in this second collection of the incomparable Kevin Cameron's articles and columns from Cycle and Cycle World magazines. Sometimes technical, sometimes philosophical, always entertaining, the pieces are arranged thematically, and Cameron provides a brief introduction putting each into context. In the wide world of motorcycle writing, there is no one quite like Kevin Cameron--and nothing quite like the opportunity this book offers for joining him on a long, entertaining, enlightening ride.

From the Inside Flap:

Almost three decades ago, a racing engineer named Kevin Cameron began writing a monthly column for the legendary Cycle magazine. When Cycle was incorporated into Cycle World in 1991, readers rejoiced that Cameron came along for the ride. Whether he’s writing about a racer’s psyche or a motorcycle’s functionality, Cameron reduces the subject matter to its elemental form and then reconstructs it in such a way that his readers understand all the previously hidden hows and whys. Engineers respect him because he is one of them. Racers speak with him candidly because he knows their craft. And, as Top Dead Center 2 shows, readers are the ultimate winners because engineers and racers give Cameron the straight story.

From the Back Cover:

Cycle World’s Kevin Cameron is the most insightful motorcycle racing journalist and technical writer on the planet. He not only understands why racers race and how motorcycles perform, he explains both in ways that lead the rest of us to “aha” moments. This second volume of Cameron’s articles and columns highlights his perception that the pursuit of higher performance improves our general understanding of the way things work. Referencing motorcycle geniuses like Soichiro Honda and Erik Buell, and legendary machines like the Bimota Tesi and the Britten V-1100, Cameron shows how racing serves man’s never-ending quest for excellence.
