Book Review – Seven Deadly Sins by David Walsh

 

Seven Deadly Sins

My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong
by David Walsh

 Seven Deadly Sins
David Walsh’s Sisyphus has finally emerged victorious over his eternal struggle with the boulder – half man, half media – named Lance Armstrong. Beautifully written, shocking, occasionally heartbreaking, often resulting in the ‘ah, of course, now that makes sense’ sigh. A vindication, indeed beacon of hope, to all real journalists eking a living out there in the nether world that professional sport has become. Ask the questions that demand asking, without fear. Cycling is a truly great sport, once a leveller, it will be all the better for the eradication of the blind romanticism, myth-making and marketing that the wearying followers of Mammon seem to pedal each and every year. Thank you David, I just wish I had said it to you when you stood almost alone. I’m awarding this book 100% just for sheer persistence!

Read this book and enjoy riding and racing your bike in 2013.

Have a warm and wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year.
