  • Reccommended Books and other Media

    I searched and only found this thread on Kris Holm's book: http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=114466

    What other books and media are good for unicyclists to have, from beginner to advanced?

    I'd always recommend some good Russian literature. Tolstoy is quite easy reading in a decent translation and is a good place to start.
    Unicycling is the fountain of youth.

      Yes, Tolstoy is good, but if you want to read something from Russia that's more relevant to unicycling, try Lenin's State and Revolution. That'll get your wheel rolling!

            Luno sounds like Che Guevara's Motorcycle Diaries, but on one wheel! Awesome!

              Books everyone should read once in their life: "Nineteen eighty-four" by George Orwell, "All quiet on the Western Front" by Erich Maria Remarque.

              Seriously though, there are few really helpfull books on unicycling out there. The Kris Holm is the best one I have seen so far.

                All Quiet on the Western Front? Yeah, the Nazis used to burn that one!

                  I have Kris Holm's book, and am waiting for a couple of other ones to arrive in the mail.

                    Kris Holm‘s book is also the only relevant book on unicycling I know. What I‘m wondering is, if there are any magazines about unicycling or magazines that regularily have articles about our sport.
                    At the moment I find this forum to be by far „the best read“ on unicyclism.

                      Every beginner ought to have "How to Ride Your Unicycle" by Charlie Dancey:
                      https://www.unicycle.uk.com/accessor...-unicycle.html

                      And "Bears on Wheels", which I discovered 15 years or so ago via a thread in this very forum, is well worth a read:
                      https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bears-Wheel.../dp/039480967X

                        Vivolo's ride the unicycle course crashed into my mailbox today.

                        How to ride your Unicycle should be Dancey-ing in soon.

                        Bears and Wheels? A kids counting book? Something worthwhile in it, seriously?

                          The KH bible is all you need.

                          Although, another vote for "Bears on wheels".

                            "Bears on Wheels" teaches counting. Highly recommended to anyone referring to a unicycle as a "bike".

                              A classic, but you may not have "read" it recently. The book never uses the words unicycle or bike! In fact it's not real big on words.
