One that I plan to Read Again

We Might As Well Win: On the Road to Success with the Mastermind Behind Eight Tour de FranceVictoriesOne of my husband's favorite biking buddies turned 50 yesterday.  My husband gave him this book, We Might As Well Win.  

I have to admit that it is a really good read.

The only reason I read it was because it was available when no other book was.  I read it backwards, starting with the last chapter, (which shows how serious I was about reading it, and proves my point that I was desperate for something to read at the moment).

But, I plan to re-read it someday.  It was that good.

It is filled with stories about Lance Armstrong and his coach, Johan Bruynel.  Each story is entertaining and interesting.  The book is well written.  It made me want to become a serious (I could never hit 'professional') road biker.  It filled me with desire to be better, to reach higher.  Needless to say, as a whole, it is quite an inspiring and enjoyable book.
