liked it

I loved Randy Pausch's The Last Lecture, one of the few book I've actually bought so I can reread whenever I want. I really liked Jai's book, until the last few chapters. What started out as a great book about the struggle caregivers go through as they watch their loved ones die, ended as a "poor me" book. Jai complains about caring for 3 kids & not having any me time, yet has the money for a live in nanny & does not have to work. She decides to go overseas traveling with a girlfriend b/c she feels she "deserves it now" rather than wait until her kids are in college. Jai has had some very hard times in her life that would not be wished on anyone and I think if she would've stopped her book a few chapters earlier it would've been so much more appealing. There are many, many people who can identify with her early on in the book, but so very few have the financial resources & large family support that she draws on, & seems to take a bit for granted.
