Having just finished reading this book after I had first read The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs
, Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong
this book is head and shoulders above them. The quality of the writing is superb throughout and I found it hard to put down. David Millar tells his story in an eloquent and intelligent way that has you hooked throughout. It is very easy for people to be judgemental when they have never faced the decisions that the ones they are critical of have had to make. As he says in the book the question of doping is not always black or white, and there has to be a means for reconciliation. That David Millar has done such a lot of good for the sport since his comeback should be properly recognised and applauded by the sporting organisations themselves as well as the public. As he has now announced his retirement at the end of 2014 I hope he can bow out with with a memorable season. Allez Daveed!
