It is a really good story. There are some goofy parts like her consulting a fortune-teller and actually believing the advice but that adds a degree of creditability to the story. Putting something like that out there had to expose her to some ridicule but I will give her credit for being honest in her book. She has had an interesting career(?) as a swimmer and I will have to google her to see what she is doing currently. I am not sure she will be able to leave the sport but I also don't think coaching is up her alley either.
I will be posting it on PBS at some point, there are 12 WL for it. I am no hurry though to run to the post office to mail just one book, so might wait until something else gets requested. I started reading Rules of Betrayal, the 3rd in the series--I have liked the other 2 and this one has started off good in the first 30 pages or so. I am also starting Kings of Cocaine about the whole drug trade from '70s on. Still reading Eat This Book also.
Age is Just a Number was my 5th book of February, a little slower than January, where I knocked out 8. I don't think I will finish another one, although Eat could get close. I have read 2 700+ page books already this year, last year I only read 3 books over 600 pages. That was one of my kind of goals this year--to read some of the larger books that I have sitting around finally. Of course some of the other 11 I have read have been a little shorter but that is just the way it goes too.
