I have read the book of the above title, by Daniel Coyle, and have to assume this is the title used, for publication in England, by Harper Collins Publishers? The book is outstanding, right up to the very last page, with inside information that adds a whole new dimension, not only to Lance Armstrong - the man, but to the sport of cycle racing and to that greatest sporting test on earth, the Tour de France. This isn't just about Armstrong - Daniel Coyle has written a supremely unbiased book about bike racing, including the good, the bad and the really ugly.

This author did an exceptional job in portraying Lance Armstrong as a real person and quite frankly not so nice of a guy at times. I am surprised the aughor was allowed to be so candid. It is an excellent book, very well written and very informative about the world of professional bike racing at the level of the Tour de France. I enjoyed it imensely, even though it shattered my fan's view of one of the greatest cyclisty in history of bike racing. Lance seems a whole lot more credible as a human being from this look at his life and perspective portrayed by this brilliant writer.

This book really devles into Lance's life both on and off the bike. I really learned alot about who he is as a person as well as who he is as an athlete. If you are a fan of Lance, this book is a must have. I was enthralled from start to finish.

Daniel Coyle captures Lance Armstrong like never done before. This book gives us a glimpse into the drive and determination that makes Lance a great athlete and person. There was so much insight into the world of professional cycling and the behind the scenes lives of these athletes. Worth the read. Couldn't put it down.

This book gives you great insight into not only Lance Armstrong's sixth win but what went on behind the scenes with his competitors and within his team. After reading you will have an opinion of cycling that is completely different that when you started. Lance Armstrong not only revolutionized consistency to the largest sporting event in the world but shows what happens when you bring American ingenuity and business practices to it. There is a reason that he is so hated in Europe. He took a traditional European sport and turned it upside down and changed how it will be ridden forever. Will we ever see another six, and possibly seven, Tour de France winner? Yes! He will only have Lance Armstrong to thank for the ability to do this.

I read this book half way through and had to stop because they paid way too much attention to his opponents. I wanted to learn about Lance and his personal struggle's, not about other cyclists.

Deathpaw, well now Deathheart, pads in the forest, weak. She faints and goes into the darkforest. An all black cat with red eyes pads to her. "I have been awaiting you." She looks at him "and you are?" He stares at her. "Darkness." He pads around her, and says, "I can make you the best warrior ever. If you shun Starclan and love and anything but here." She nods her head, not knowing what she got heerself into.
