From the cover: “In Paris on 25 July 1999, Lance Armstrong made world headlines with the most stunning comeback in the history of sport, winning the Tour de France in the fastest ever time after battling against life-threatening testicular cancer just eighteen months previously. A few months after that historic victory, he became a father for the first time. His first book, It’s Not About the Bike, charted his journey back to life and went on to become an international bestseller, and to win the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2000.

Now, in this much-anticipated follow-up, Armstrong shares more details of his remarkable life story, including four more Tour de France wins, an Olympic medal, and the births of his twin daughters Grace and Isabelle. Never shy of controversy, Lance Armstrong is a genuine global sports superstar and one of cycling’s greatest ever champions. Here he offers us his life philosophy — his thoughts on training, competing, winning and failure. He also recounts the work done for the Foundation he set up following his dramatic recovery and introduces further inspirational tales of cancer survival.

Every Second Counts is another extraordinary and awe-inspiring book from a man who strives every day to meet life’s momentous challenges.”
