Want to Read saving…. Feels like he'd dope again. The general rule was that losing a few pounds gave you a huge boost to speed -- riders would try tri Tyler Hamilton's biography and mea culpa. Most of what the Tyler asserts is corroborated with mini-interviews with other former Team Postal riders. It was completely crazy.
This book has guts and fire, it's real and deeply honest. I learned a lot about the science of doping and, while I don't agree with it at all, I now understand the why of it all.
The truth is sad, indeed. I look at all sports differently now, that's for certain. I admire Tyler for his honesty, which came at a huge cost. But the inspiration this book holds, the insight to honesty and how it literally does set you free, is remarkable.
It's easy to tell the truth when you don't have much to lose, but it's much harder to tell the truth when you have everything to lose. In the end it may have cost Tyler his career and an Olympic gold medal, but it gave him the important things that hold greater value.
Very few books bring me to tears, but this one did, many times. There are many wonderful quotes in the book that stayed with me but this one stands out I think that saying is really talking about the resilience of truth. It has a force inside it, an inner springiness.
When a door gets closed, the truth seeks a window, and blows the glass clean out. But most of all, it will touch your heart. See all 1, reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

With little choice, Hamilton sang like a canary, as did most of the former Posties. View all New York Times newsletters. We are left with Armstrong, who increasingly looks like the sporting answer to Alger Hiss: And we look back on an astounding imposture — which calls for some penitence, not just from the dopers.
A political journalist by trade, I moonlighted covering the Tour, and wrote a history of the race for the centenary. To be sure, we live in an age of imposture, and of falsehood.
But several other titles have been won this year by tainted riders. And I must ruefully admit that the later pages of my book are now simply redundant, along with so much else written about the Tour these past two decades.
