This book was a lotinteresting then I thought it was going to be I had no idea about the struggles of Laila Ali I envy her for her confidence and her boxing career I love how real she is in this book I expected a littledishonesty in order to protect her fathers name There are good lessons to be learned from her especially for young women. a good summer read for teenage young ladies. Have to say, didn t really care for this book I d be interested to read it if it were written by Ms Ali now, as opposed to when she was only 23 I was disappointed that the vast majority of the book focused on her childhood As a pioneer in women s boxing, I was hoping there would becoverage and emphasis on her training, career, etc I mean, of course, people would expect her to at the very least touch on her childhood, given her lineage, butthan half the book covers a period of ti Have to say, didn t really care for this book I d be interested to read it if it were written by Ms Ali now, as opposed to when she was only 23 I was disappointed that the vast majority of the book focused on her childhood As a pioneer in women s boxing, I was hoping there would becoverage and emphasis on her training, career, etc I mean, of course, people would expect her to at the very least touch on her childhood, given her lineage, butthan half the book covers a period of time before she even started training And between you and me, the writing felt quite amateur, although I suppose that s to be expected given her age at the time I felt that the tone to be argumentative and combative, in a way that turned me off almost immediately It would be one thing if she was telling of certain events with the explanation of how she handled it at the time, with a certain attitude, but there never seemed to be any reflection or admittance that it probably wasn t right, or this is how what I learned One such passage recalled how she was caught shoplifting and, while in custody and at the hearing, was defiant and putting on airs cause she was strong and wouldn t take anything from anyone Ummm you broke the law There s nothing morally ambiguous here say your sorry Or, now that you re an adult, at least admit it was wrong I also felt that that was a degree of disingenuous throughout much of the book Obviously, that s just my own feeling But many things just didn t ring true, and felt staged Some of which includes how she talked about her parents Everyone of us has flaws, some of them BIG, but you can still be a good person I certainly don t dispute that, but she went on and on about what a hero her dad was and how great her mom was with the exception of a period of time when she was in a certain relationship She referenced how some of her step siblings really her half siblings, not step harbored resentment towards her mom No offense, but can you blame them Her mom started an affair with Ali years before he and his wife at the time were divorced, and also got pregnant before the divorce Of course there was resentment Things happen, no one is a saint, and it takes two to tango, but you can hardly be surprised that there was bitterness regarding the situation Any way, that was just my take Another person in my book club felt almost the exact opposite So, to each their own She definitely was instrumental in bringing women s boxing to the forefront, and has lived through many hardships, and came out the other side I just didn t particularly enjoy reading this book
