I liked the book. Mika is straighforward in the mistakes she's made in her life and her recovery from them. Most memoirs are not. I was really moved by her description of her child's accident and her reactions to it --- full of "mom-guilt". I think that Mika is fooling herself if she really believes that she can be a good mother while she delegates raising her kids to other people. Every now and then a neon sign flashes "change your priorities!" Mika acknowledges the neon sign ... then continues her life, unchanged. Kudos to Mika for being willing to acknowledge this in her memoir, most people wouldn't.
