I'm in a bit of a unique position, with one of my children writing a memoir about her life, and the sportswriter co-authoring it being my other daughter.
Having read half of the book after the Fast and Furious 7 premiere last night, I have a few things to say.
First of all, My Fight/ Your Fight is a really good book. It's well-written and a good story. Sales have been impressive for a book that won't be out for another six weeks. I guarantee it will be a best seller.
Some people are portrayed as better than my opinion of them, while some come off looking worse, but those are just my opinions.
Second, reading through it, I'm struck by how your recollection of
events is determined by your vantage point. So far, I have not found
anything in the book to be inaccurate. However, there are events that other people might consider highly significant that she never bothered to mention, and other incidents that I wouldn't have mentioned but it was a big deal to her.
Third, and along the same line, I was amused by how much my view as an adult and her mother differed from Ronda's as a teenager.
I have promised not to give away details until the book is published. You can remind me to give my detailed opinion after it comes out.
I have also waived my right to sue them, which would be a pretty incredibly stupid waste of time since whatever I got would end up going back to them anyway when I die. Besides, it's a bad idea to piss off the people who will choose your nursing home.
Well, I better stop now before I give anything away.
