Some chapters were very helpful, others were aimed too much towards hardtails and/or front suspensions. Parts were repetitive as they were written by various authors and previously published in Mountain Bike or Bicycling magazines. Worth skimming for sections that apply to your local terrain, skill level, and type of bike.

This, along with the "New Cyclist Handbook" was a great help for building skills and reminding me of things to look at/work on, since I haven't been on a bike in [mumble] years.

A great book of tips for the beginning mountain biker. Includes tips for getting past the beginner stage and learning to find your line and ride more confidently. Especially helpful were the tips for exercises and drills one can do off the trail to improve your skills, and a section on how to adjust the fit of your bike.

Despite using some jargonesse, this is a good introduction for the new mountain biker
