A huge Lance fan...cycling fan that is....,
By A Customer
This review is from: Every Second Counts (Hardcover)
My family and I have been following Lance's career since well before his public battle with cancer. We have been avid watches of the Tour since the mid 80s and our July revolves around that schedule.
I was very disappointed by this book. I, too, was shocked by the profanity after turning the first page. Not that I think strong models like Lance don't ever swear, I just don't think it needed to be within the first 100 words! There seemed to be no logical information flow - more random thoughts as I found myself skimming to re-find a plot line. It was almost like the book was not edited for content and structure.
Stick with Lance's first book - It's Not About the Bike - to get an inspiration. Read this new book if you want to understand the collapses in his life (family), but Lance's accomplishments are still amazing despite his challenges.
If you want details about the racing side, visit his web site or other USPS team member's web sites where they write the ins and outs of racing in the Tour.
