it was amazing
bookshelves: biography, nonfiction
Read in June, 2002

I read this right after my dad passed away from cancer. Lance was a hero of my dad's for some time, but I'd never seen his autobiography until I found it on my dad's shelf. Lance's drive to survive and win against all odds is an inspiration to anyone, but especially to cancer survivors & their family. It really helped me get through a difficult time, and inspired me to start doing triathlons with Team In Training (a great organization which helps benefit cancer victims).

Oh - and Lance is the shit :)

Yusuke So did my father. Wish I had found the book 20 yrs. ago, though it was not yet written. Good luck in Triathlon, I just started road bike racing.

Virgilio Pigliucci I am wondering if this book now should be classified in the 'fiction' genre.....
