Summary
  • "The first in-depth look at Lance Armstrong's doping scandal, the phenomenal business success built on the back of fraud, and the greatest conspiracy in the history of sports"--
  • Lance Armstrong won a record-smashing seven Tours de France after staring down cancer, and in the process became an international symbol of resilience and courage. Then, in January 2013, the legend imploded. He admitted doping during the Tours-- but didn't say who had helped him dope or how he skillfully avoided getting caught. The authors take an in-depth look at the doping scandal, the phenomenal business success built on the back of fraud, and the greatest conspiracy in the history of sports
