Obligatory "Haven't read, but want to read." I think Jan's story was overshadowed and forgotten about in light of the craziness involved with Lance. I want to hear Jan's story, I know there's a lot of ups and downs involved just from what little I've heard on forums. Hopefully I'll get around to it soon.

Not a quick or easy read but worth it.

That book looked interesting but $50-60 used! Geez. Anyone have a copy they want to sell?
