Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I had read Mr. McDougall's Born to Run (which I highly recommend to readers who are into self-improvement, physical fitness-wise and performance-wise). Girl Trouble is a non-fiction historical account of the spectacular emergence and eventual crashing decline of Gloria Trevi, a one-time hugely popular Latino entertainer. Mr. McDougall has a magical way of making me feel that I am actually there in the room with the personnae that he is writing about. I felt the emotions that the individuals felt. I felt their fears, hoped their hopes, experienced their times of frustration, felt their moments of anger, and was happy when they were happy. I involved myself in Mr. McDougall's opus so heavily that when I had finished reading it (yes, it's one of those page-turners), I was almost exhausted, both mentally and physically. This book is a movie just waiting to be produced. Having said all that, I would suggest that you spend your money elsewhere.
