As others have noted, Keith Code's Soft Science book can be summarized in a few words (same as Twist of the Wrist 1 and Twist of the Wrist 2): Pay attention, develop your plan, and think it through. I have to put this out there: Keith's treatment of "paying attention" was annoying in Twist of the Wrist 1 and 2, as well as Soft Science. Once I see his use of credit cards, coins, or dollar bills, my eyes glaze over and I skip the section. I am sure it is well meaning, but riding is much more intuitive and requires feel versus calculating cents and dollars so I didn't quite catch his analogy.
Some of the concepts are common in other books like Speed Secrets 6. Keith's "sampling" is akin to Ross's idea of driving over the limit to consistently drive at the limit. However, Keith adds to this by discussing feelings. Rather than avoiding sand or rain, how would you handle sand and rain? This is actually something I practiced before I read either book. I have found ways to deal with driving in heavy rain (setting your wipers on HIGH and slowing down is not my idea of handling the rain) or snow although most people just avoid either condition or drive at a pace that is dangerously (to others) slow.
I also found the obsession with racing lines or finding the right line in each corner to not help very much. It is far more reliant on feel and intuition than is described in the book. If you had to calculate braking points and lines, you'd eventually forget or some differing condition would throw this off. The book is also showing its age when it exhibited a "modern racing motorcycle" that would easily fit into a museum of racing - but granted we're not reading this book to learn about the latest technology from MotoGP or World Superbike. The bikes and cars might change, but the ideas remain the same.
Overall: 4/5 stars, not as useful as Twist of the Wrist 2
