I think HE has a lot of apologizing to do. NO PARENT should leave a child for a girlfriend, especially a fifteen year old that doesn't have a sober mom and one who is living alone. Ryan is an arrogant Hollywood narcissist and he needs to ask for his own forgiveness instead of having his "people" do all his dirty work.
You are on the right path, Tatum. Keep going forward, with or without the arrogant, aging actor.

After watching the tv show about Ryan and Tatem, and now reading the book, I have to say that Ms. O'neil seems to be impressed with herself and talking the talk of recovery while she actually shows quite vividly what an angry, unforgiving individual she really is. She completely blames Ryan for all her own mistakes and considers herself an excellent mother after all she has put her own kids through, while being incapable of forgiving her own father for his mistakes. For all her talk, she seems to refuse to forgive him. She is the only one who can truly do that for herself. All she needs to do is forgive him, like her kids have done with her. It is not Ryan's problem, it is hers alone. She acts like a jilted lover, not a daughter who loves her father. She blames Ryan, attacks Ryan and doesn't hear what he is saying when he apologizes at all. She doesn't see her dad as being a human being with flaws and feelings, but cannot forgive him for not being the super-hero she thought he was wwhen she was a child. There are thousands of people who have had many more severe traumas growing up than she did and this book seemed not so much as her journey to improve herself, but a focused effort to make her father feel guilty for not being perfect and for having loved Farrah Fawcett. I don't see how she thinks this book is an inspiration to people when the end result is that she still has not forgiven her father. I will only be impressed when she has honestly done that. I feel sorry for Ryan having to deal with such public animosity from his fully grown daughter! Especially with years of AA under her belt, because this is not a story of forgiveness, it seems to be an attempt to point fingers at Ryan and make herself look so much better than him. I found it extremely irritating to listen to her congratulate herself when the truth is she has not learned what the true meaning of forgivness is! If she forgave Ryan truly, she would have a loving relationship with him. Period. She WON'T let it go, not that she can't but she won't. And I for one don't find that inspiring at all. She needs to hang on to this stuff because it would be just too scary to believe that some of the pain and insanity that happened all those years ago may have been caused by her own actions too. Time to grow up and act like an adult and let the past go, like a big girl Tatum!
