It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life by Lance Armstrong
I heard Lance interviewed a few times on the Jim Rome show and Jim has pumped this book many times, so while searching for something, I grabbed it.
As I started reading, it's as I expected, built around Lance as a bike racer. It starts out talking about how much his life changed and he's really a separate person, someone that was born when the old Lance died at 25. When he found out he had cancer. It's touching and he runs through the emotions, the thoughts, the fact that he was diagnosed and they wanted surgery the next day and how he had to deal with the details of life at the same time he was emotionally running crazy. That part is touching.
But from there, he back tracks to his childhood, how he was growing up, how Armstrong was his stepfather's name and he never knew his biological father. There's a lot of anger as well as matter of fact, don't know him, no big deal. A lot of the same emotions I have. It's fascinating for someone like me that likes to bike and read biographies. To see what he went through to get to the top of his sport. And how much he credits his genetic freakiness.
