“Descent is arguably the most shocking” doping book yet.

No one had more fun being bad than Thomas Dekker. In his award-winning, international best-seller DESCENT, Dekker spares no one as he tells the story of a yearslong bender that exposes the brutal truth of his life as a professional cyclist. 

“Thomas Dekker’s Descent…is arguably the most shocking yet, and not only for its descriptions of doping, lurid though they are. There are, of course, the usual stories of EPO and shady hotel room transfusions; Dekker sitting in a pool of his own blood in a bathroom at 4am with a needle in his arm. But it is the uncomfortably raw, matter-of-fact descriptions of the hedonistic lifestyle of a professional cyclist just one decade ago, and the depths to which he sank as he tried to navigate his way through that minefield, which are most shocking.”
