While Bruce Jenner was training for the 76 Olympics he lived in a small apartment overlooking the San Jose City College track. It was a perfect place for him to live because he could just look out over his balcony and visualize his ten decathalon events on the bright blue track below him. One of my best friends lived in the apartment next to his and thus I got to know Bruce a bit. I was very impressed by him. He had a happy-go-lucky way about him and he greeted everyone he met with a joyful smile. A lot of Olympic athletes lived in this particular complex, but Jenner was the man everyone rooted for. I was over at my buddy's place the day ABC televised Jenner setting the World's Record and winning the Olympic Gold. Every TV in the complex must have been on and the hollering and screaming of support and encouragement for Bruce was so loud it would not surprie me if he actually heard it all the way to Montreal. To those of us lucky enough to have known him, Jenner is still considered a God in these parts. So all these years later, when I saw his book I had to read it. It was inspiring and extremely honest. He revealed a deep inner insecurity that no one back when I knew him would have ever guessed. In doing so, he made it easier for everyone to gain self-acceptance. Heck, I thought, if Bruce Jenner can overcome his doubts and fears to make something of himself in the world, than so can I! I highly recommend this book!Was this review helpful?
