    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.
