In addition to interviewing pretty much everyone -- except Ullrich -- he provides a comprehensive account of how an exceptional athlete can be used and abused by those around him, regardless of the geopolitical dynamic involved.

Kudos to Friebe for humanizing what seems to be a good human being who has no ill will or malice in his heart. I wish the best for Jan Ullrich.
P.S. Just in case you think it could never be done, Friebe manages to humanize Armstrong and bring to light his best characteristics. Armstrong never left JU's side, regardless of the circumstances.
If anyone can understand Ullrich, it's Armstrong. Kudos to Armstrong for not coming across as a complete douchebag for once.
