On 1 September 2006, Jane finished a nine-week, 3,700-mile cycle ride across America. It was hailed as one of the greatest endurance feats ever undertaken by a terminal cancer sufferer. Jane's husband, Mike, called it 'a celebration of the human spirit over the body's frailty'. HOW GOOD IS THAT? takes the reader behind the scenes of the ride and, as well, examines the shifting nature of the couple's perspectives as they faced up, with candour and honesty, to the greatest of challenges. The book, already substantially written by Jane for her part, will be completed by Mike to give the reader an incredible and moving insight into the achievements, emotional and physical, of a woman who inspired a nation.
