    Johan Bruyneel knows what it takes to win. In 1998, this calculating Belgian and former professional cyclist looked Lance Armstrong in the eye and said, "Look, if were going to ride the Tour, we might as well win." In that powerful phrase a dynasty was born.

    Ian says: "Great read, mediocre narration."

    Overall

    As a long-time cyclist, I am predisposed to enjoy this book. It is a very interesting look into what drives Bruyneel and how he has managed his teams over the past 10 years. Cyclists and non-cyclists will enjoy the view from inside the team car.

    One note: The narrator has a great voice and is easy to listen to. However, his pronunciation was terrible, and I cringed when he mangled nearly every non-American proper name (like Liege, Alpe d'Huez, etc.). I would have expected that he spend some time learning the proper pronunciation of cyclist names, city names, etc.
