Full disclosure--I have been in love with Greg Louganis since long before I knew one man could love another. I bought his book when it first came out, amid an insane hailstorm of publicity and forgot to read it. Last week I saw a clip from the documentary being made about his life and remembered that I had this book on a shelf somewhere. Better late than never.

It is a very good book and Louganis is shockingly honest. He doesn't appear to sugar coat anything and makes every attempt to share his sometimes very painful, sometimes very ugly story, warts and all.

I am always amazed when public people that I've been aware of forever (Louganis has loomed large in my life for as long as I can remember) share their stories and their private lives are so shockingly different from what I had imagined. The life I imagined Louganis was living couldn't have been more different from his reality.
