- Jennifer Sey is brave, but also strategic, for putting her story onto book shelves. Her release date (just 3.5 months from the games), the overly dramatic subtitle and lack of gymnastics memoirs out there made this book sure to get all the publicity it has gotten.
- Not a must-read, but an interesting book still. It is intriguing to read from someone that was NOT an Olympian, media darling, or was hugely popular in the sport. Learning about a gymnast that is not as well-known provides much more interest for the reader because of the more candid looks, thoughts, and emotions going on in a regular elite gymnast's life.
- I commend Ms. Sey for overcoming the disappointment of not making it the '88 Olympic team and turning into a successful businesswoman, getting married and having children. This is something that remarkably not many gymnasts, successful or not, can say. Many gymnasts are all like "I'm making a comeback to make the Olympic team at 35," but Sey has taken the initiative upon herself to be successful and happy beyond gymnastics.
