I just scanned the book, and read chapter 4 on suspension tuning. This is a pretty good chapter and spells out the basics of suspension tuning before getting into details on the internals of suspension components. Like most things written on suspension tuning, this seems to fail to point out that on a typical race day, it's necessary to adjust the suspension for the changing track conditions.
I have found the advice from the guys at Factory Connection on the tracks in the Northeast extremely helpful since they pointed out that from the base settings typically small excursions (plus/minus one clicker) can make a huge difference as the tracks evolve and "rough up". It would be nice to include a bit more detail on tuning, what to look for as track conditions change, settings for ruts, mud, etc.
