"A velvety mix of vivid, sophisticated prose, Raymond Carver's unerring eye for nuance, and John Irving's irreverent, unflinching humor....An intimate look inside the maelstrom of professional cycling."
--Boston Globe

Daniel Coyne's New York Times bestseller Lance Armstrong's War takes a fascinating, in-depth look at a staggeringly talented yet flawed sports hero as he faced his greatest test: a record sixth straight Tour de France victory. Now with a new epilogue covering Armstrong's quest to win an 8th Tour de France, this "intimate, insightful, unflinching look at the greatest athlete of our time" (Jon Krakauer) explores the remarkable drive and accomplishments of a controversial champion--a must read for fans of John Feinstein and David Halberstam, as well as readers of Lance Armstrong's own It's Not About the Bike and Every Second Counts.
