That basic mantra is more or less repeated over and over throughout the book, which can make the reading a little less enjoyable at times but I understand the need to repeat these concepts over and over to help it sink in to some readers'/riders' heads.
The basics covered in the book were covered by my motorcycle safet class, as I would hope they would be by any class. That said, there was plenty of insight, tips, hints, pointers, etc.. to make the book worth the purchase.
I particularly appreciated his focus on establishing good habits, so you don't have to think about what to do in an emergency, and advice for practicing key techniques (fast stoping, edge trap encounters, off road riding) prior to needing those skills on the road.
The segments on hot whether and group riding were also valuable to me and pointed out some things I wouldn't have thought of otherwise.
Some of his references are a bit dated (he references tape players in one chapter) and I'm curious if there's any data available more recently than the Hurt report, which he references extensively, but those things don't really detract from the key value of the book.
