3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, Oct. 30 2003
Personally, I was quite disappointed in the content of this book. I was getting back into running after a several year hiatus and bought this book to inspire me to a new level of fitness. I found the information to be geared towards the beginner and quickly "outgrew" it.

This falls just short of the 5 stars I would have liked to give it.

As a fellow cancer survivor, I could so relate to his battle. Mine was not as advanced as his was, and many times I felt like just giving up. I cannot imagine having to endure surgery, and chemo, and still managing to get on a bike. There are times when Mr. Armstrong comes across as arrogant and obstinate; probably what gave him the strength to persevere in the face of the naysayers who had already given him up for dead.
