Have to say didn t really care or this book I d be interested to #read it if it were written by Ms Ali now as opposed to when she was only #it if it were written by Ms Ali now as opposed to when she was only I was disappointed that the vast majority of the book ocused on her childhood As a pioneer in women s boxing I was hoping there would be coverage and emphasis on her training career etc I mean of course people would expect her to at the very emphasis on her training career etc I mean of course people would expect her to at the very touch on her childhood given her lineage but than half the book covers a period of time before she even started training And between you and me the writing elt uite amateur although I suppose that s to be expected given her age at the time I elt 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 howwhat 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 Don't Hex with Texas 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 alsoelt that that was a degree of disingenuous throughout much of the book Obviously that s just my own eeling But many things just didn t ring true and elt staged Some of which includes how she talked about her parents Everyone of us has Black Women Writers (1950-1980): A Critical Evaluation 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.
