The photographs are all taken by Elizabeth Kreutz and they are stunning - see the examples above. They are arranged in chronological order and each is accompanied by a little explanation from Lance about what he was doing or thinking at the time. The layout of the book and the paper stock are also high quality.
Reading this book feels like you've spent a year being a fly on the wall as Lance goes about his life. It's a fascinating glimpse into his world, from the high glamour (flying in private jets and hanging out with world leaders) to the mundane (running his kids to school and playing in the backyard with them - nice backyard by the way Lance). There's even a photo of him undergoing a urine test. You certainly get an appreciation for the hard work that goes into being a professional cyclist as well as the considerable work that he does for cancer research. His relationship with his partner Anna also comes across as being very close and strong.Read more ›
In general, the selection of photographs is questionable. There are far too many of Lance meeting with officials and celebrities and promoting his LAF foundation. There is too little attention paid to chronology both in selection and description. Any reader will struggle with connecting names with individuals in the photos. There seems to be an assumption that all individuals depicted and their connection to Lance are well known. There is substantial emphasis on his family, though that is a confusing situation and, again, there are identification problems with the photos.
There is a bit of defensiveness in the book: who is a friend, who by implication is not; who supports, that is, rides for, whom; and the like. The coverage of the racing, training, and his trainers gets the short end of the stick when laid up against all else in the book. All in all, it is an interesting book but suffers from a lack of good organization, selection, and consistency. Lance fans will no doubt overlook any shortcomings.
