I've enjoyed Armstrong's two autobiographies, but this biography by Coyle really enhanced my understanding of Lance and the Tour de France. He looks not only at Lance, but also at other key personalities that impact Lance and his time on the tour, like Jan Ullrich, Tyler Hamilton, and (particularly interesting now during the 2006 tour) Floyd Landis.

I really enjoyed this book. It went into a lot of detail about the grueling training, lifestyle, race strategy, drug testing, superstitions, and all sorts of things about pro cyclists. Of course, Lance is the central focus, but it goes into a lot of details about his competitors and team mates. Very interesting!!
