Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to put down Great book. I can see that it might trigger a lot of negativity in some people, but if you are fairly open-minded and have some knowledge on mental disorders, you will truly enjoy this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hypnotizing This book grabbed me from the very beginning with the beautiful and insightful description of the experiences of mental health in the intense world of competitive sports. The candid sharing of one's own struggles - both in mental health and in family in general - regardless of the extreme situation is something that will touch you personally as a reader and encourage you to be more mindful of the journeys that everyone is on that we encounter in our own lives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVED it I read this book in one sitting, as it captured me from the first sentence. I read over other reviews (on a different site) and saw a lot of judgement and negativity, which really concerned me. It's so sad to see women hating on other women and judging their acts. I completely understand where everyone is coming from but feel the need to defend her. Men do things like this all the time and it's brushed off as "boys will be boys" but when a woman does it it's outrageous. I think it's time to be more open minded and less judgmental. I think it's clear that she did not do this out of selfish reasons nor was she clearheaded when this happened. I happen to work in mental health and addictions and see this type of behaviour everyday. Many actions and behaviours do not make sense and that is because their brain isn't functioning properly. You need to remember that when you're experiencing mental health issues you're not being a perfectly reasonably and freely thinking individual. There is almost like a heavy cloud surrounding your brain and you do what your mental health dictates unable to recognize or correct your behaviour. I think it took a lot to speak out about her story and we should all feel privileged to be able to step into her world and see how it feels to be her during her hardest times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Frank and insightful I enjoyed reading this memoir. Weiner writes with humour and honest introspection. The chapters include some previously published material, organized with new material that tells a complete story. I appreciated the details she shared about the publishing business: the work involved in writing a book, as well as the business decisions that come afterward.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Worth a read. Tough to understand what she went through. Unless you lived it. Happy for her recovery

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slow. Painfully zone 2 slow. The book has far to much non racing background for my taste. That may work for some put I had to skip sections to keep moving at all. I was having such a hard time it took me almost a year to pick away at this book. The last quarter of the book is the best. The stuff about her challenge Roth races and pre race injuries are interesting to hear.
