Lance Armstrong is a world-class cyclist and winner of the famed Tour de France the past two years. But he nearly died from cancer, and this book explores his grueling trip back up the figurative mountain, not only to life, but also to championship riding. He includes a section on his youth in Texas and how he started in bike racing. His illness taught him the patience he needed to become a winner. But the bulk of the book is about his battle with cancer. The book is conversational, which makes for an excellent adaptation to audio. The reader, Oliver Wyman, does a solid job. In fact, he reads with such emotion that listeners might swear they were hearing Armstrong himself--without the Texas accent, though.
