Fascinating reading now, in light of his admission that he cheated with PEDs, ruined the careers of a few team members, disappointed cancer survivors everywhere and was generally one of the biggest jerks in sports history. Give him credit for this: He was a master at building a myth.

I would have enjoyed this book a lot more without the bad language. His story is an inspiration!

Not a fantastically written book but it had me engaged throughout. I learned so much about biking VO2 max and fitness and the will power of amazing athletes.

A really good glance into the life of Lance Armstrong. The details of his fight with cancer, whether physical, mental, logistical aspects of his life are extremely intriguing. His mental state post-cancer is especially interesting, along with the details of his treatment, lifestyle and the in-vitro fertilization treatments done on his wife are very open and telling. Definitely worth the time!
