This is a collection of articles from the Times almost entirely written by David Walsh chronicling the Tour de France from a little after the Festina scandal of 1998, through Lance Armstrong's domination.

Nothing new to see, yes?

Well, yes and no. Reading the articles back in the context of Armstrong's shaming following the USADA report and the stripping of his titles shows what a courageous work of journalism this is. As such, what you may have read before feels fresh.

Way back in 1999, Walsh was pointing out that Armstrong was going faster than the entire Festina team who had just been done for doping. Despite the bullying and the decision to ignore the story by much of the rest of the media, Walsh continues to investigate.

I'm sure a far more thorough book will be on the way at some point - but, for now, this is complete as you're likely to get. For the price, it's a terrific collection of journalism that reads even better now that most people will accept that Walsh was right. Credit too to the Times for allowing its journalists to pursue the story.

As a final note, the Times have done a good job in creating the ebook too, with each section well laid out and easy to find. This is something that isn't always true when newspapers try to create these things.

This publication doesn't mark the culmination of David Walsh's fight since 1999 to expose the drug cheats in road cycling but it is a sign that hopefully we are entering the last lap. It will take change at the top of the UCI before Walsh is fully vindicated and no doubt a properly edited and rounded book will follow but in the meantime this collection of journalism, predominantly but not exclusively by Walsh, keeps the pot bubbling nicely and reminds us all of the depth of feeling and sheer never say die spirit these guys have brought to the proceedings. Of course this is by necessity a brief summary of what has been said and written before and this is reflected in the price so technically there is nothing new here but it is very useful to read back over what has been a consistent and provocative campaign. It is worthy of note that Walsh does not take all the credit for himself and especially in the early days gives due kudos to a number of French journalists who dared to speak out against the wishes of the press pack. Brilliant stuff!

A brilliant compilation of articles written over the years steadfastly exposing Armstrong as the cheat he was whilst all those other journos around David Walsh denigrated and belittled him. I just wish Armstrong himself would hold his hands up acknowledge the truth. An excellent read to be recommended.

I have no personal interest in cycling but was interested to understand what has been happening in cycling and specifically the deceit behind Lance Armstrong.I read this book in a day, I was hooked and although there is some repetition because the content (I think) is reproduced articles, this did not deter my enthusiasm. Thoroughly recommend

A little disappointed as not as well written as I had hoped for so a struggle to read and would only say it was somewhat interesting but only in parts. I tend to read factual books but cannot put this on my list of ones I enjoyed.

I greatly admire David Walsh's prolonged and principled campaign to raise the questions about Armstrong that needed raising, and have since been answered. However, as a collection of newspaper articles over a period of years, this does not make great reading, being by necessity both repetitive and only as deep as newsprint allows. I don't begrudge Walsh a few quid for the book, but I wouldn't recommend it until you've exhausted all of the other related works, starting with The Secret Race.

David Walsh deserves every award going for investigative journalism. He knew it all before the USADA investigation and he had to put up with the bullying tactics of Armstrong inc for all of the years he raised suspicion. This collection of articles from the Sunday Times, mainly by Walsh, but also by other jourmalists such as Kimmage, shows how clear the long term doping of Armstrong was for those who wanted to know and also reflects a sport sadly unwilling to investigate itself or ask and answer difficult questions. Thankfully Walsh was not scared to ask these questions, nor reach inevitable conclusions. The King is dead... long live David Walsh!

I'll make no bones about it I was an apologist for Lance Armstrong, and strongly denied these allegations against him, baseing my support for LA on the fact he'd never tested positive.
Until that is I downloaded and read a few pages of the USADA report, you don't need to read it all, I still maintained Lance was innocent of all charges and David Walsh was a vindictive crackpot along the lines of Robin Gardiner, a compelling story needs compelling evidence, Walsh produces it Gardiner alas does not!
It's a sordid and dirty story from which lance Armstrong only has one avenue left open to him now, come clean Lance you can no longer deny the facts, plus he comes across as a downright nasty piece of work if you cross him in any way.
Good on David Walsh et al who stuck it out knowing the truth would come out someday! Lance's apologists now rank alongside the Holocaust deniers in their blinkered views to my mind.

For further reading I'm trying to read a poorly translated copy of LA Confidentiel, the book that really rattled LA and his cohorts, not been printed here in the UK under threat of Lance sueing, whether or not that threat still holds good as the Sunday Times are looking to claim the damages paid to Lance back!
