As with most every cyclist, I enjoyed following Lance Armstrong during his reign at the Tour de France. I had heard good things about this book and was not let down. As the title suggests, there is a minimal discussion of bike racing, although his life is so intertwined with the sport that he can't completely avoid discussing it. I found the book very powerful, it made me want to get out and start riding all sorts of charity rides. I learned a great deal about his childhood and followed along as he beat the odds and defeated cancer. You really don't need to be cyclist to enjoy this book, it's message is clear and applicable to everyone.
