I've enjoyed Armstrong's two autobiographies, but this biography by Coyle really enhanced my understanding of Lance and the Tour de France. He looks not only at Lance, but also at other key personalities that impact Lance and his time on the tour, like Jan Ullrich, Tyler Hamilton, and (particularly interesting now during the 2006 tour) Floyd Landis.

Really liked this book...it was honest. And since Le Tour is going on right now it seemed an appropriate book to read! ( )

Don't you just love biographies? This book not only display LA as a person with all his strengths and flaws, but it also opened up my eyes to sport of cycling. The page kept turning, I just couldn't put the book down. ( )

The author, Daniel Coyle, moved in with Armstrong during the year preceding his 6th win at the Tour de France. I'm a huge LA fan, active in the cancer advocacy movement, so don't try to badmouth LA in front of me without expecting me to argue a bit.

But Coyle accomplishes true balanced reporting here. The book is riviting, the pages turn effortlessly, as he introduces us to Lance's obsessive training regimen and the day-to-day life of readying his body for the grueling ride.

What I loved most here is that Armstrong comes off as real, not all good, not all bad. He's no god, he's flawed like the rest of us. But Coyle truly captures the complexity of the man, as well as the sport. ( )

The best thing is that the book is not strictly about Lance, but the stories of many athletes that struggle to make it in cycling and the atmosphere of the sport and Tour de France. The author's interjections are not an annoyance, but a colorful and humorous insight into endurance sports, but then again I also appreciate Hurricane Bob.
