I’ve been riffing on the rank commercialism of the latest Lance Armstrong book (the authors have already updated their twitter profiles with pre-order info) as much as my day job will allow.

But what really irks me is that the writing just plain sucks. I know you’re shooting for 5th grade level and action-movie pacing with this stuff, but c’mon—you ought to be able to write crisp, factual, prose without pinching off an homage to Dostoyevsky.
