want to improve your technnique

then read Keith code a twist of the wrist volume 2
this book is quite old, but centers on the correct actions at the correct moments during cornering etc (the area most of us have problems with) modern sports bikes suspensions will make allowances for slight errors. but if you follow the steps in this book i guarantee you'll improve your riding skills.
Areas covered
countersteering
braking
acceleration out of corners
lean angles
speed of turn
body position
knee draggin
avoiding SR (survival reactions)
The book is good for everyone from beginner to racer. Most of the techniques apply to track sessions but i can testify that some of the content does also apply to road riding. Being able to recognize your SR's and react accordingly will ultimately save your life one day.....

keith codes prose are an ACQUIRED taste
he may be intelligent.... and folks may respect what he has to say

but.....
his books must have been written when he was ON DRUGS....
and his videos/dvds.... some of the worst EVER made

maybe i'm in the minority here... but, i think that his writing are IMPOSSIBLE to read without becoming nauseous

TOTW2 was definatly inspired by hard narcotics, good content, but some of the stuff in there worries me, like how he admits to having developed some techniques street racing his buddies while drunk on tequila.

not so sure it's setting a good example.

HAIL TO THE KING!!

what i appreciated about the book mmost of all was the SR's identifying them and how to combat them. i remember when i started riding 17yrs ago and how many times i stood a bike up because i thought i wouldn't make it round a corner. well i can prove i dont do that abymore - last year i lowsided at 55mph ish going to fast into a corner, was scraping everything, even tried to hold the bike up on my knee when it went, but no she let go big style into a barrier. What SR did i do wrong - bit too much front brake cranked right over. And if i'm honest its slowed me down, before that i was riding like i couldn't do anything wrong.
Now in the last 2 weeks 7 people have been killed on bikes in my area. Prob make me slow down even more - then again maybe not......
Ride hard ride safe and be lucky

Books are good for little pieces of information wich can be used in developing your skills and or riding style...what works for one may not for another...it is all about seat time and leaving your ego behind.
