     It's Not About the Bike is a great book that tells Lance Armstrong's incredible story. It starts with his rough childhood; he never knew his dad but his mom had a great influence on his life. He used cycling as an outlet for his anger and became very good at it. After he turns pro, he is diagnosed with cancer and has to undergo chemotherapy. When he recovers, he works hard to get back on the bike and start winning again.

This is a great book because it shows how you can overcome any challenge you may face. It gives a detailed description of what it's like to have cancer and experience chemotherapy. It doesn't sugarcoat anything and makes the problems you face every day look like nothing.

I recommend It's Not About the Bike to anyone who wants an inspirational story. Even though some parts are sad, it is still an excellent book.
