Having some surgery, or putting on a dress, and saying "I'm a woman now because I think I am," doesn't make you one . Bruce Jenner is not a woman. He is a male.

Is Caitlyn Jenner a hero? No. Is she courageous? Not particularly - although she might have been if she wasn't a privileged personality who could afford gender reassignment surgery. But she is an advocate trying to break down barriers on what might be the last prejudice - discrimination against transgendered persons.

This book recounts her struggle with her true identity at a young age, as well as a synopsis of her three marriages - the most notable to Kris Kardashian, but also to two other women - one of whom was a "Hee Haw" girl - and the children they produced. The book touches on Jenner's and Kardashian's friendship to both OJ Simpson and Nicole Brown before she was murdered; as well as Jenner's contentious relationship with the press as he was transitioning, most notably with Harvey Levin of TMZ. Well thought out and certainly heartfelt, although going back and forth between time periods was a bit confusing.
