A fly-on-the-wall account of the Lance Armstrong doping scandal – the greatest drama in modern sporting history by the New York Times cycling correspondent.
As Lance Armstrong’s precipitous fall from grace continues, New York Times sports reporter Juliet Macur takes the reader behind the scenes to bring you the astonishing twists and turns of an outrage that has rocked the world of cycling. With unprecedented access to the key players in the drama – from Armstrong’s fellow cyclists and top cycling officials to doctors, trainers and wives – Cycle of Lies reveals how Armstrong built a fortress of people around him to protect his image and upend the lives of anybody who stood in his way.
As America’s fallen idol faces potential perjury charges, Cycle of Lies widens the focus to expose corruption at all levels of the sport in a thrilling work of contemporary narrative history.

As you'd expect
Yes I definitely will. It's one of the best books I've ever listened to. Totally compelling.
It is about the same subject matter as Tyler Hamilton's excellent book 'The Secret Race' but clearly broader in its research and perspective.
Similar to 'Seven Deadly Sins' by David Walsh but Juliet's book is far superior.
Having listened to the whole book I remember the picture painted of LA in his home just prior to the removal men. It was sad to see the impact of his actions on his family and especially the impact on his youngest children being uprooted from the family home.
One of the best books I've ever listened to.
