I was reluctant at first but thid kept me entertained. It was also very interesting. Would be cool if chapters were added to cover the stuff that happened after the last chapter in the grand timeline of things.
These guys deserved every penny they made and a good deal of respect. Not only did they have to train hard, constantly diet and all the things we would expect, they also had to take enormous legal risks, endure the stress of living a secretive life and trust their health to some very dubious characters. You can't help but feel some empathy for them. I was very pleasantly surprised by the level of detail. In fact, having seen most of races during those years, I had many questions stored up and this book pretty much answered them. A must listen or read if your a cycling fan and a great one even if your not one. Unlike some books, the audio version for this works particularly well. It's as though a friend is recounting the story to you.
Needs an Afterward to be added reviewing events that have transpired since book was originally written. Still an outstanding, behind the scenes account.
Narrator wasn't my favorite but passable. Story was excellent, I'm not even a sports fan and I absolutely loved it. Tyler Hamilton's story is amazing. Honest view of the cycling culture back then and the story of a good person caught up in that world.
Tyler Hamilton finally saying "F*ck You, Lance!" Good for you Tyler!

If you want to get a thorough look inside doping in cycling, I think this is the book for you. The book was an easy listen and never dragged. Well worth the credit if you want to understand what happened during Lance Armstrong's "reign".
I couldn't bear to listen to this book after the first few pages of excuses and how he really did nothing wrong. Given he wrote an entire book based on his inability to accept responsibility, the whole book has little merit as nothing more than fabrications and spin.
yes to the extent I won't spend any money on a book by anyone that was caught cheating as its very unlikely to be anything but his spin with half truths
none as nothing was believable given his failure to acknowledge he was responsible for his actions.
Incredible story told with remarkable honesty, passion and even humor at times. A fantastic listen. I've now listened to it twice - as compelling the second time as it was the first. Highly recommend. It's one of the best on Audible by far.
