Description

The five-time Tour de France winner and Number 1 "New York Times" bestselling author returns with an inspirational account of his recent personal and professional victories--and some failures--and an intimate glimpse into how almost dying taught him to really live.
Since the release of his megabestseller, "It's Not About the Bike," Lance Armstrong has enjoyed a new series of thrilling rides, culminating with the extension of his string of Tour de France victories to a record-tying fifth in 2003. Continuing the inspiring story begun in his first book, "Every Second Counts" captures the mind-set of a man who has beaten incredible odds and considers each day an opportunity for excellence.
Armstrong's previous book recounted his journey from a grim diagnosis of testicular cancer to a stunning recovery that culminated in his winning the 1999 Tour de France. His new book addresses the equally daunting challenge of living in the aftermath of this experience and making the most of every breath of life.
A fresh perspective on the spirit of survivors everywhere, "Every Second Counts" will invigorate and enthrall Armstrong's millions of admirers."A joyous, triumphant book, a celebration of all the things that make life good." --"Booklist
"
"There's something of a vicarious thrill in being along with Armstrong for the ride." --"San Antonio Express-News "
