Riveting -- Yet Not Convincing!
am 3. Juli 2000
The writing is powerful as the authors take us deep into the world of competitive cycling and also life-threatening cancer. Lance's medical recovery and skills as an international champion cyclist are beyond refute.
However, the book is marketed as something more than simply a sports memoir. Unfortunately, Lance's humility and personal transformation aren't convincing. The manner in which Lance lashed out at the employee at a golf shop, proudly labeling his wife a "stud," and accelerating his automobile past 100 mph when "Kik" went into labor left me with the impression that he's still an obsessive, self-centered, macho jock.
In my opinion, Lance's effectiveness as a positive role model should indeed "not be about the bike."
