    I was intrigued as to what Macur would write as it is of course the American View this is brilliant and to be fair a little informative than Walsh s slightly ranting book.I like the way that she doesn t completely rip Armstrong to shreds, there is a lot of humanity in the book.Loads and loads of juicy details that I have not read anywhere else.Fair Play Juliet and thank you for a great read.

    A well, constructed, fair minded book.It really opens up the whole can of worms and it is interesting that the main message that comes through is that the Tour is simply unwinnable at the presently expected levels of speed and endurance without help My only criticism is that it is slightly over detailed the one incident is so like the next ten incidents that it becomes a little repetitive and boring it could have done with a little judicious editing Apart from that, well worth a read.

    Having read all of David Walsh s output, I almost felt that I didn t need another Armstrong book in my life However, after hearing the author interviewed on The competitors, I bought the book This is a very engaging read which I devoured in just a few sittings There are the ubiquitous Betsy Andreu contributions, but there are also contributions from many others whose voices I had not yet heard, who added some new insight to this already well told story Rather than just another Armstrong book, this is a worthy read, even for those already well acquainted with the saga.

    Just confirms that Lance was a very nasty piece of work and that Bruyneel was is not much better a complete account than the David Walsh books but not as involving as somehow Julie seems detached and not as personally involved in bringing down the Armstrong myth.

    I loved this book as it gave a great insight into the personality, thoughts and relationships It also attempted to reveal the truth amongst all the lies.

    Thought I knew most of what happened, I was wrong More detail than any other book or TV show I ve seen on the subject
