Looks a bit of a mess....
on 9 March 2013
I'll start with the negatives, and say I thought this book looked a bit of a mess, the formatting on the kindle version looks terrible (at least on my Paperwhite), everytime there is a quote the text size gets smaller making it difficult to read without changing the font size larger each time. Strangley viewing on my iPad doesn't have the same problem, shame somebody didn't test it on a kindle before releasing this book.
Ok, rant over. I actually really enjoyed this book. As others have said it is a little disjointed at times, but the story is compelling and as a cycling fan who has follewed the TDF since eighties, I too believed in LA and others. Many of these dopers like to justify their actions by saying that everyone else is doing it, but thats not quite true, and the genuinely clean riders like Christophe Bassons had their careers and livelihood cut short by the cheating and bullying of Lance Armstrong. Well done David Walsh, who may well have set the ball rolling on the collapse of this 'legend'. Love to be a fly on the wall if they were ever to meet again.
