Coach Dave Brailsford has been responsible for bringing British cycling to world dominance, overseeing victories in the 2012 and 2013 Tour de France. This behind-the-scenes look at his career considers his management style, psychology, and philosophy, focusing on his response to doping and other crises during his term at the helm of Team Sky. Cycling writer (and able, if sedate, narrator) Roger Moore looks at Brailsford's response to these challenges, including his reliance on confidants and management manuals. A short but intimate look at an elusive figure making a major dent in the sports world today.

Just a story

I was hoping for some profound knowledge sharing but for an hour long story which almost seemed like abstracts of a longer and better book.
