That was quite a victory. Lance Armstrong, winner of the 1999 Tour de France. In 1992, at age 21, he was a brash neo-professional from Texas. In October 1996, at the conculsion of the Tour de France, he was diagnosed with cancer, and given a 20 percent chance of survival-not to mention his chances of returning to the sport he loved. A year later, he was recovering from cancer therapy, and joined the Tour de France as a visitor. In 1998, he started a slow and faultering comeback, dropping out of the major races. In 1999, he did come back. In a big way. A winning way, becoming the second American (after Greg LeMond) to win the Tour de France, the world's toughest sporting event. In Lance Armstrong's Comeback from Cancer, veteran bicycle racing writer Samuel Abt pieces together, not only the story of Armstrong's spectacular Tour victory, but also his equally miraculous victory over cancer. Written as a scrapbook of Armstrong's career, it's a true story and an inspirational one, proving that there is hope for cancer survivors. A dramatic book-and a tribute to a conquering spirit.

If you like Lance, you might enjoy this. It reads like a series of articles rather than a cohesive story. You'd get a fact stated in one paragraph and then restated as if it were new two paragrahs later.
Although interesting, I can't think of much in the book that we didn't hear from the TDF TV coverage.
The copy editing was probably the worst I've ever come across in any published book. It drove my wife so batty that she had to stop reading it.

I found this book to be amazingly awesome and that if you are a true cyclist, you should read this book. everytime after I read it, it inspires me to ride more often. I strongly suggest this book if you like hearing about miracles happening. I thought it was amazing how Lance over comes cancer and continues to win 5 straight Le Tour de France titles.

Not much to say, except that Sam Abt has known Lance Armstrong for the better part of a decade and therefore has insight that other sports writers resoundingly lack. If you want to know more about Armstrong, this book is FAR preferable to the rider's terribly (ghost) written autobiography.
