    A must read for cycling or triathlon fans

    An excellent look at the drug/doping culture of the cycling world, and ruthlessness of Lance Armstrong. One may not like the fact that these cyclists cheated, but you understand why they went down that path.

    Honest and insightful

    Tyler Hamilton does a terrific job of revealing the ugly and dark side of pro cycling. His experiences are enlightening and seem to come from the heart. A wonderful read for the pro cycling fan.

    Great book

    This is a well written book that tells the real story from the pro peloton. But be warned, you will never look at a pro race the same again.

    Riveting Exposé

    Although I knew doping happened, it was disappointing to discover the scope of it. Even sadder was the realization that many excellent riders who refused to "play the game" were denied an opportunity to participate. Our "win at all cost" helped create this situation. This book was not just about Tyler Hamilton or Lance Armstrong. It was an indictment of the entire system. I do not consider Tyler a hero, but he was brave in writing this book. He endured threats and accusations but was not dissuaded. In light of recent events, he was proven right. Perhaps worst of all is the conduct of Lance Armstrong. He exemplifies the definition of a narcissist. He attempted to ruthlessly destroy anyone who got in his way. Anyone who was not with him was against him. He denied any culpability until he realized there was no choice. His televised confession lacked any semblance of true remorse. I hope we all come away from this book with a more realistic view of today's superstars.
