Awesome! A must read for all, who want to prove something in life. It is a page-turner. I pick up this book to read when I was feeling low with the certain things happened in my personal life. Lance, thru this book helped me realize that anything is achievable and any hurdle could be overcome. Thank you Lance. I have heard of Lance Armstrong, the man who won the Tour de France record-breaking seven times after recovering from life threatening cancer. So what? All I expected from this book was a fairy tale of a rider who survived cancer and became successful in the tour. But what I got was totally different and Iâve become a fan of Lance and the cycling. Lanceâs life as a whole is inspiring not only the cancer survival or tour de France victories. He started his career with a cycle on credit. His first bike damaged by a truck driver, second one lost in a life threatening accident but still he never stopped riding. You should definitely have enough courage and determination to continue. If you think he was lucky, yes he was in three things. He born in USA, he got a very understanding mother and great coaches. When someone tells youâre not good to do something, donât simply accept it. Try doing it at least to prove that person is wrong. Lance did it. When Cofidis and many other teams rejected him saying he is no more the athlete who wins the races, he was determined to prove them wrong and you know what happened. History was written! Everything happens for a reason, and even though things may seem difficult at that point in time, it will all work out.
awesome content presented nicely
This book is about cancer and how Lance Armstrong, the author survived it. this is a great story of how grim determination and luck beat the odds against incurable disease and reach accomplishments far beyond the normal person's dreams. He is indeed an incredible athlete in the race aw well as in his life also. He kicks cancer and then go on to be one of the best cyclist in the world. He describes some training, races and how he becomes the top cyclist, his marital life and combating cancer. Armstrong has tremendous will power and he worked really hard to reach to the position. But Armstrong is not alone. He has a devoted mother, a girlfriend, good biking community friends, teams of doctors, and even strangers interested in his care. He has been very honest in writing about himself and his fight against cancer. Its probably the combination of his confidence and the love that saves his life as well as his biking career. I found Lance's life to be extraordinary, a triumph and an inspiration. Armstrong is still very much in the process of self-discovery, and that this book is just his journey so far.
