Reviews

Fascinating... not a typical rags to riches, triumph against adversity tale... Lewis does a fine job of unpicking a tangled narrative * Observer *
A remarkable story... attempts to import the Lycra-clad, precision-engineered world of the Tour de France into rural Africa form the heart of this absorbing book...Team Rwanda's story could have been edited into an uplifting tale of unlikely success, with Niynoshuti's Olympic appearance as the rousing finale. Instead this is a more complicated, darker, account. * Financial Times *
It's a book that successfully melds many facets and characters. At times deeply shocking, always moving and occasionally very amusing, The Land of Second Chances is ultimately an uplifting story of hope * Wheelsuckers *
His meticulously researched work merits a wider audience than appealing to devotees of the biking fraternity - and will surely get one.... A good cycling tale and this one is a cracker * Birmingham Post *
An eloquent and compassionate tale by Observer author Tim Lewis. Perfect for: sport lovers after a leftfield underdog story -- Sam Dansie * Bike Radar *
