I first read this book on holiday a few years ago, and would probably have gone along with the reviews from others on here who gave it four or five stars. Then it was an inspirational story of someone coming back from what was initially testicular cancer, which had unfortunately spread to his brain and lungs, to become one of the cycling greats. As we all know in recent years the truth surrounding Lance's cycling career and his multiple Tour De France wins has emerged. Despite that it's still… Read Full Review

It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life is extremely entertaining and inspirational. It basically covers Lance Armstrong's life from his childhood, to becoming a pro cyclist, to getting cancer, and then surviving and become a cycling legend.
It is very well written, to the extent that it is completely obvious that someone has written it for him, but I don't mind this because he has still been brutally honest about himself, and it makes for a great read.
I have read this book several… Read Full Review

Excellent book about fighting cancer and then going on to win the Tour de France (the book doesn't cover all his wins).
The ultimate inspirational story, it describes one person's rise to cycling fame, then their demise at the hands of various cancers and then their battle back to health. (It is particularly impressive in the way he describes not just his suffering but his drive to live against formidable odds. He also has the good grace to point that whilst attitude is a huge help, there's… Read Full Review

I enjoyed this book a lot. the fact that he describes every thing well also does me some favours as I don't like books that are waffly and don't describe things. This book was an easy read and the pictures were pretty gruesome but they helped to convey the facts and information a lot better… Read Full Review

Lance Armstrong, It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, is an excellent read for all, cycling enthusiast or not. Truly inspirational and very well written, this book covers Lance's story from before he was famous, throughout his battle with cancer, and his comeback to be the Tour De France winner in 99'. This is one book you cannot put down, but also do not want to finish, read it many times and given it to all my family and friends. Read it, you will not be disappointed… Read Full Review
