Dirt Bikes (Torque Books: Cool Rides) by Jack David

Did you know that dirt bikes are made to go everywhere except the road? This book Dirt Bike written by Jack David is a non-fiction book.

Dirt Bikes the book is mainly about how dirt bikes can be used. In the text the author says things like In the late 1800s the cross-country was the first dirt bike. From the 1800s to 1960 the dirt bike was basically a motorcycle. 1960 was also the year dirt biking had became more know and popular. The main idea of the book was to give information on the history of dirt bikes.

My analysis is that the author Jack David wanted to persuade the reader to want a dirt bike. My reasoning for this is because of the text structure the book, cause and effect. In this case Jack uses cause and effect as if you having a dirt bike means you can do this. For example in the text it said If you have a dirt bike you can learn cool tricks to show and impress your parents and friends. This means that he is trying to show you how if you had a dirt bike your friends will think youre cool.

My opinion on this book was that it was okay. I feel this way because the book was displayed as fact on top of fact. For example in the text it said Cowboys use them to herd animals. and Two-stroke engines give more raw power. Things like this made the book kind of hard to enjoy because of all the facts.

If I had to rate this book i would give it a 2.5. because even though the book was very informational all the facts where making the book not as interesting. If I had to recommend this book to someone it would be one of my friends that I know likes to know facts about the sport of dirt bike riding. If your thinking about going dirt bike riding make sure not to make a mess in the dirt.
