I've read or listened to many books on this subject. As an cyclist I idolized Lance for years. If it weren't for him I would probably not have gotten as into the sport as I have and almost certainly wouldn't have started racing. The book is a nice compilation of his story of both winning and his downfall. I've thought for the past 8 years that he had been doping for his whole career, so his admission to that wasn't surprising. The surprising and disappointing part of his story is the collateral damage of so many people whose lives he threatened or ruined. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject.
I work in the finance industry and thought this would be an interesting listen. It definitely keeps your attention!
This book is very entertaining and seems to be very honestly written....that said, it is VERY vulgar. Lots of language, sex, and filled to the brim with drugs. I knew all of those were going to be a component of the book, but it was a little bit too graphic for me.
Incredibly researched and written account of Enron. I would venture to say this is the best non-fiction book I've ever listened to. It is written more like a novel and is very easy to listen to and follow. If you like a good scandal, you'll love this book!
