Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The five-time Tour de France winner and Number 1 New York Times bestselling author returns with an inspirational account of his recent personal and professional victories—and some failures—and an intimate glimpse into how almost dying taught him to really live.

Since the release of his megabestseller, Its Not About the Bike, Lance Armstrong has enjoyed a new series of thrilling rides, culminating with the extension of his string of Tour de France victories to a record-tying fifth in 2003. Continuing the inspiring story begun in his first book, Every Second Counts captures the mind-set of a man who has beaten incredible odds and considers each day an opportunity for excellence.

Armstrongs previous book recounted his journey from a grim diagnosis of testicular cancer to a stunning recovery that culminated in his winning the 1999 Tour de France. His new book addresses the equally daunting challenge of living in the aftermath of this experience and making the most of every breath of life.

A fresh perspective on the spirit of survivors everywhere, Every Second Counts will invigorate and enthrall Armstrongs millions of admirers.

“A joyous, triumphant book, a celebration of all the things that make life good.” —Booklist

“Theres something of a vicarious thrill in being along with Armstrong for the ride.” —San Antonio Express-News

Synopsis:

In a follow up to his megabestseller, the Tour de France winner and cancer survivor shares a new series of thrilling rides, including the birth of his twin daughters, being named "Sports Illustrated's" Sportsman of the Year, and extending his string of Tour victories.
