    This is an author that I wanted to hate, when I was half way through the book, because much of what he says comes off sounding arrogant and self-centered. He talks of his accomplishments, his ceaseless drive, how unfairly he was treated by those who thought he was doping, his generosity, his many homes, and then goes on to des

    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 not.

    Of course I

    Apart from the events where he blatantly defends his drug accusation and narrates emotional & mental stress he is undergone with due to such events, and how unbelieving was his performance to others who committed to see him through a spectrum of doping and which he describes as purely an outcome of his dedication and focus.

Armstrong is a seven-time Tour De France winner, which is arguably the hardest cycling race on the planet. He wrote this book in collaboration with Sally Jenkins, a sports writer. It is the second book by Lance Armstrong, after he wrote his first autobiography, “It’s Not About

    I did not read the Spanish version, though that's what seems to come up here... :)

    Rather than a review, just posting some of my favorite quotes from the book to preserve them.

    So it looks as thought I'm going to live - at least for another 50 years or more. But whenever I need to reassure myself of this, as I sometimes do..

    Armstrong's second book is a remarkably balanced account of his attempt to adjust to an 'ordinary' life after his extraordinary battle against cancer and subsequent win of the Tour de France with the US Postal team.

    This one is again a great book by lance and for me this book is more about telling the life of an athlete and what does he goes about in his life -How he balances his family, friends, and cycling.

    This 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 title.
