In 2005, Lance Armstrong was on top of the world. He had successfully battled cancer, won seven consecutive Tours de France, earned the adulation of millions around the world, and was being widely touted as a viable Texas gubernatorial candidate. Even then, however, there were ominous rumblings about accusations of blood-doping, but it took years before subsequent multiple reports finally broke down the walls of defenses that seemed to protect the champion cyclist. This revelatory new book by Wall Street Journal sports reporters Reed Albergotti and Venessa O'Connell describes the conspiratorial mindset that enabled Lance's "one big lie" to be presented as a "mythic, perfect story." Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
