Velodude said:Hamilton's author, Daniel Coyle, was also the LA approved author of "Lance Armstrong's War".
Coyle spent months in Spain with Armstrong and the team in preparation for the 2004 TdF. He dispelled some long standing myths and gained some insight into the man that served him well in writing Hamilton's book.
Back when he was promoting his Armstrong book, long before all this broke, Coyle was asked in an interview what in his opinion was the public's greatest misconception about Armstrong. To his credit, he answered, "The public's greatest misconception about Armstrong? That he is a nice guy."Pazuzu said:True enough. But what's so unique about Armstrong is that, unlike Barry Bonds or Roger Clemens - who the public knew were a$$holes, Armstrong was able to hoodwink a large proportion of the population into believing he was this noble person. When nothing could be further from the truth.
Scary how gullible some folks are.
