I got the book yesterday from Amazon (arrived earlier than I expected.) Anyone else have it yet? I'm about 1/2 way through (though I did skim the rest a bit last night.) As I would have expected from Johnny's journal posts, it is very readable. So far I am most at how he described Michael Weiss (not so much what Johnny thinks of him, but the words used.) Page 80. The reason why he had to withdraw from the GPF in China (pp 116-117) - "Oh, Johnny!" - you hit the nail on the head, Patti! There's lots of sweetness there too, though, including Johnny's first sexual experiences, and his deeply meaningful 2005 Worlds exhibition performance. People who don't like Johnny now aren't apt to change their minds from what I've read so far, but those who appreciate all that he is are in for a treat. Wait'll you see the baby bird photo!
