Read in November, 2010
Interesting, candid read. As a one-time huge fan, I was compelled to read the entire thing, in spite of the fact that I began to find him very unlikeable and amazingly narcissistic. I'm not sure what the point of the memoir is--other than perhaps the obvious: to sell books and make money. Nothing wrong with that of course, but it isn't as if I came away from the book saying, "Wow...what an amazing tale of someone who overcame adversity" or anything. I suppose you could see him as being brave for telling his story but for me, it seems opportunistic more than anything else. It is fairly well-written, however; not sure if he had a ghost writer or maybe a good editor but I was impressed with the quality of the story telling, if not actually being blown away by the story itself.
