Advance Praise for LANCE ARMSTRONG'S WAR
"An intimate, insightful, unflinching look at the greatest athlete of our time. Daniel Coyle has given us a hugely entertaining, nuanced portrait of a larger-than-life figure and his turbocharged world. I couldn't put it down."
—Jon Krakauer, author of Under the Banner of Heaven and Into Thin Air
"Daniel Coyle chases the soul of the man, his sport, and the Tour de France, seeing so much that you wonder if he was drafting on the bike behind Armstrong. Through his book we understand, for the first time, the true dimensions of Armstrong's unconquerable spirit—and what makes him such an unapologetically competitive beast."
—Buster Oiney, author of The Last Night of the Yankee Dynasty
"In this brisk and brilliant book, Daniel Coyle captures the fabulous life and fast times of an international icon—and pierces the mystic heart of motivation itself."
—Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and Americana
Praise for Daniel Goyle's HARDBALL
"A gutsy reporting tour de force."
—Bob Woodward, author of Plan, of Attack, Bush at War, and AM the President's Men
"Hardball is a painfully beautiful book. Though it reads like a novel, it provides a wrenching portrayal of real kids with real dreams. It is one of those rare books destined to affect the way we think about, and feel about, life in our inner cities."
—Walter Isaacson, author of Benjamin Franklin: An American Life
"In this extraordinary book, Dan Coyle takes the reader to another world, a world where kids become accustomed to gunfire and death and lose their sweet innocence before they should. An eloquent, searing tale that is part Brians Song, part Studs Terkel."
—KenAuletta, author ofBackstory, Three Blind Mice, and Greed and Glory on Wall Street
One Man s Battle Against Fate, Fame, Love, Death, Scandal, and a Few Other Rivals on the Road to the Tour de France.
