Lance Armstrong’s War: One Man’s Battle Against Fate, Fame, Love, Death, Scandal, and a Few Other Rivals on the Road to the Tour de France, by Daniel Coyle

Book Description

Lance Armstrong’s War is the extraordinary story of greatness pushed to its limits, a vivid, behind-the-scenes portrait of Armstrong — perhaps the most accomplished athlete of our time — as he faces his biggest test: a historic sixth straight victory in the Tour de France, the toughest sporting event on the planet. Made newly vulnerable by age, fate, fame, doping allegations, and an unprecedented army of challengers, Armstrong fights on all fronts to do what he does like no one else: exert his will to win. That will, which has famously lifted him beyond his humble Texas roots, beyond cancer, and to unparalleled heights of success, is revealed by acclaimed journalist Daniel Coyle in new and startling dimensions.
