it was ok

I didn't actually finish the entire book, I just couldn't do it. While Gypsy's life is interesting, and I find it fascinating the way she changed striptease from taboo to "American pastime," the book was hard to follow and ended up being a little boring. The author tends to skip around within subjects instead of presenting her life in a cohesive way. Perhaps I was just distracted and didn't get into it, but I've read better bios.
