I found Misty's new book "Digging Deep..." so entertaining that for the first time I found myself "bothering my spouse" frequently. It seemed like I "bothered" her over 10 times, to share a line or a story from the book. Some of it was sharing insights into the depths of the volleyball world, and some of it was just hilarious stories that Misty has experienced.
Misty's book reminds me of the promo line from an old movie entitled "Stuart Saves His Family". The line goes: "You'll laugh because it's not your family, and you'll cry because it is." I did find myself laughing out loud, as well as having tears well up in my eyes while reading Misty's book.
I highly recommend Misty's book for its unprecedented "bother your spouse" factor. It's "bother your spouse" factor is so high that my wife can't wait to read it.
The book was in very good condition and came pretty fast after I ordered it.
The book, Misty: Diggin Deep in Volleyball and Life, is in excellent condition and signed! what a great surprise!
very happy customer.
Would buy from seller again.
There's no denying that May is an amazing athlete who has done great things within the sport. And she's had a rough journey to get to where she is. May doesn't hold back about the issues she's experienced (her parents alcoholism and abuse, an assault in college and many injuries) and is very open about how she feels about things, which makes this book a fast and interesting read.
But I struggled with this book because I found myself put-off by the attitude that comes across. I realize this is an autobiography, but it was too focused on how May sees herself as such an amazing athlete. As an example, she cites a time in college where she partied too hard and missed practice with a hangover. She says she realized immediately that this was wrong on her part (very true) but the reason it was wrong was because she was the star of the team and couldn't miss practice because the team would suffer for it (she actually says this). It was too 'I'm so great' for me. I've read several autobiographies from athletes that come across more humble and appreciate than this one.
There is also a lack of information about the olympics themselves. Arguably, her two Olympic gold medals are her greatest accomplishment to date. But she didn't win them on her own. There is very little in this book about her parter on the court Kerri Walsh.Read more ›
