Good read on Rossi

Just finished Rossi's autobiography, What IF I Never Tried It. Good read and pretty entertaining. Gives some great history and insight to the big rivals and thier history. Also about his childhood and his devious ways. A good look into the mind of the GOAT.
He's an arrogant fella that is to be certain, he knows he's a star and has no problem reminding the reader of his greatness. All in all I'd give it a strong 7 for a good rainy day read or something to take on the plane or to the beach.

If anyone wants to read the first few pages to get a feel, here's a link.

Quite a good read so far, I'll probably get the book and read it one weekend.

I was thinking about picking that book up here pretty soon.

I was reading just last night about his rivalry with Max Biaggi, and when Biaggi put his elbow out when Rossi tried to pass and Rossi ran off track in 2001. Then I think 1 lap later Rossi passed him and flipped him the bird.....

Found the video and it was pretty funny.

I will probably be picking that book up sometime this week
