    Despite believing that Lance Armstrong was a drug using cheat I really enjoyed his first book It's Not About The Bike It was a well written compelling story Lance is an example for everyone not to give up not just cyclists or cancer patients regardless of whether he's using performance enhancing substances or notOf course It's Not About The Bike was not ne

    So it looks as thought I'm going to live at least for another 50 years or But whenever I need to reassure myself of this as I sometimes doArmstrong's second book is a remarkably balanced account of his attempt to adjust to an 'ordinary' life after his extraordinary battle against cancer and subseuent win of the Tour de France with the US Postal teamLance does a commendable job at describing the difficulties

    This one is again a great book by lance and for me this book is about telling the life of an athlete and what does he goes about in his life How he balances his family friends and cyclingThis book starts once the lance won his 1st title in the race and is is getting ready for the next one and how he keeps winning till the time he ends up winning his 5th titleWhile there are surely few instances where he gives you adv
