Over the course of two years, Daniel Coyle conducted more than 200 hours of interviews with cyclist Tyler Hamilton and spoke candidly with numerous teammates, rivals, and friends. The result is an explosive book that takes us deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to succeed that they would do anything - and take any risk, physical, mental, or moral - to gain the edge they need to win.

WINNER OF THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD On a fateful night in 2009, Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle met for dinner in Boulder, Colorado. Over the next eighteen months, Hamilton would tell Coyle his story, and his sport's story, in explosive detail, never sparing himself in the process. In a way, he became as obsessed with telling the truth as he had been with winning the Tour de France just a few years before. The truth would set Tyler free, but would also be the most damning indictment yet of teammates like Lance Armstrong. The result of this determination is The Secret Race, a book that pulls back the curtain and takes us into the secret world of professional cycling like never before. A world populated by unbelievably driven – and some flawed – characters. A world where the competition used every means to get an edge, and the options were stark. A world where it often felt like there was no choice.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I have a gift of being able to keep going no matter what. I am not masochistic about it, because I have a method. I can’t block out the pain, so I have to embrace it. My family is tough, and we always have been. #2 I had a close relationship with my mother, who was a great athlete in her own right. I always wanted to be like her, and when I was injured, she would be there to help me. #3 I was a skier and bike racer, and I was always able to keep up with the bigger and stronger guys because I loved to suffer. When I went all out, putting 100 percent of my energy into something, I felt good. #4 I met Lance in 1994, when I was entered in the Tour DuPont race in Wilmington, Delaware. I was fascinated by his energy and his in-your-face style. I admired how he celebrated at the finish line with a touchdown dance.

Between the 1870s-90s, considerable attention was paid to Jews and Judaism by English critics and writers. Argues that the consideration of Jews by English writers was often in the context of their efforts to describe and improve the English character. Observes that alongside English antisemitism there existed English attitudes which were in effect protective of the Jews. These included the Evangelical Revival's desire to both protect and convert the Jew, the English self-definition as both tolerant and believing in God (in contrast with intolerant Spain of the Inquisition and godless France of the Revolution), and the view expressed in George Eliot's "Daniel Deronda" which was affirmative of Judaism and the quest for a Jewish national homeland.
