I purchased Lance Armsrong's book. It had some good workout ideas, but I didn't get a whole lot out of it that I hadn't already picked up elsewhere.

Serious Cycling by Dr Edmund Burke
with Chris Carmichael.
I just finished it, and while I'm not specifically
training to race this book is excellent. Covers
Everything, technique, bikes, setup, medical etc.
has schedules etc.
And Suprizingly still topical is Lemonds book on
cycling.
