Michael This would be, what, the second time Oprah had a writer pushing a fake book on her show?

I thought this was interesting: I say in my book that my dad “never told me he loved me and I never said it to him either.”(pg 177) Now I’m sure a lot of kids had this experience with their dad, or some significant man in their life. But in his book he says, “I knew that my grandfather had never told my father he loved him, and my father had never said those three words back.”(pg 366). How can you say something “back” to someone who never said it to begin with. That's a good example of sloppy writing and I always try and look for those things when I read a story.

I guess if I wrote a book that was published and someone stole actual lines out of the book I'd be angry. So what's your next step?

Kenneth Tingle (httpwwwgoodreadscomktingle) | 14 comments Michael, I don't know. Is it even worth it to go to court? What would you get? I learned twenty years ago that you can be legally right, morally right, and still get screwed in a courtroom. I'm still thinking everything over.

Reading Wolf (readingwolfminda) | 25 comments Asking for a pubic apology would be a good idea. He should at least have the decency to do that if he knows he is in the wrong. And if he still swears that he has done no wrong. Karma will take care of it. LOL.

Kenneth Tingle (httpwwwgoodreadscomktingle) | 14 comments Thanks Minda. The support and agreement I'm getting so far is great. Just got an e-mail from an ex-local who is 1800 miles away. He read both books and feels it is blatantly obvious. He feels the odds of this many "coincidences" is a million to one.
