Summary:
This is the story of one man's journey through triumph, tragedy, transformation, and transcendence. It is the story of Lance Armstrong, the six-time winner of the Tour de France, and his fight against cancer. People magazine called it "inspiring." The New York Times called it "fascinating." But perhaps the Cincinnati Enquirer said it best: "It's not about the bike, or about the sport. It's about the soul."
