I couldn't help but notice some of the glaring contradictions to his brother's book. It seems to me as if this is a sort of 'hey, don't forget about me! I was abused too!' book. While he admits that his brother had it MUCH worse than he ever did, it seems to me that he wrote this in hopes of convincing others, and mainly himself, that he isn't a bad person for instigating and adding to the abuse of his brother. I don't know how I feel about him, but I certainly hate the mother even more now. I honestly am saddened that she was able to live to old age and die naturally...

Jen I also see that he and his brother haven't been on speaking terms in years due to differences of opinion in what actually occurred in the past. Apparently Dave thinks a lot of this book was embellished in hopes of selling copies, basically riding on his brother's coattails. Such a sad family/story, no doubt.
