I Recommend This Book

Yes

The Race to Truth may not be the most eloquent or well written book on "the most sophisticated, professional and successful doping program that sport has ever seen", but the complete candor and guilelessness of Emma O'Reilly captivated this reader as I was taken on a fresh and insightful journey into the dark, sordid world of professional cycling. 

Certainly Emma O'Reilly was and still is subject to Lance Armstrong's Steve Jobs like reality distortion field (aptly referred to as caught in Lance's slipstream), but ultimately this is a more a story about forgiveness than redemption. 

This is not just a tale about an imperfect man maligned by his own greed and hubris, but more so a condemning indictment of a once beautiful sport rotten to the core.
