Millar is never less than candid in a memoir that is part confessional, part catharsis. (THE SCOTSMAN)
His description of that agonising 2010 mountain stage, during which he scoured the depths of his soul while falling helplessly behind the rest of the field, deserves to stand among the great first-person accounts of sporting experience. (Richard Williams THE GUARDIAN)
His career almost destroyed by a doping scandal in 2004, the cycling champion faces his demons in this eloquent and revelatory memoir. Millar's gutsy slog to restore his reputation is inspirational. (THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH SEVEN Magazine)
This is the superbly narrated story of one man's evolution from talented ingenue to disillusioned doper and back again... one of the very best snapshots of professional cycling in the noughties. (OUTDOOR FITNESS)
Highly articulate, Millar has written a courageously combative book that both exposes the conditions that create drug cheating and explains how his sport has to confront those conditions if it is to break from this most murky of pasts. (Mark Perryman PHILOSOPHY FOOTBALL)
The thoughtful British doper-turned-campaigner delivers an eloquent, highly rated memoir about life in troubled peloton. (Simon Usborne THE INDEPENDENT)
The SUNDAY TIMES bestselling memoir from the Tour de France cyclist who lifts the lid on his drug use and return to sport.See all Product description

No holds barred I wish he had written more about Lance Armstrong and his doping,but I suppose that's old news now.
I enjoy Davids knowledge when he is commentating on TV,and I hope he continues for a long time .I shall be keeping a look out in the future in case he writes another book.
The words on Lance are also enlightening in light of the revelations made after this book was written.
All in all felt a sympathy and admiration for David Millar that I didn't feel for Lance Armstrong.
