This is a good introductory book to cycling for those looking to get into race shape. The information is generally quite basic and can be repetitive, but Chris Carmichael does a good job of giving a large overview of cycling. Lance Armstrong's input seems limited to small sidebars, but they are interesting nonetheless.

The best part of this book are the training plans, of course. Carmichael delivers a wide variety of workouts that will help riders with speed, endurance, climbing and sprinting. There are good tips about how to not overtrain, yet still cycle on an almost daily basis.

Overall, while this book is already dated, the training plans are still great and useful. This gives a nice overview of cycling for the rider looking to take the next step from beginning riding. ( )
