    Story
    "Selfish -No secret here..."

    Unapologetic account of Caitlyn/Bruce's life. His behavior over the years has caused a lot of hurt and pain for his kids and the women he married. He glances over it in an "oh, well" not really my fault because of my internal battle sort of way. I have one word to describe this book and its' author Caitlyn-SELFISH!

    "Let down"

    This book is rubbish. No family secrets. It's all 'poor me.' Save your audible credit.

    Story
    "Enlighten into his...her World"

    I enjoyed listening to her book. I have awhile new view of what she went thru, kind of sad. I'm happy she's happy but if being totally honest, I feel for his, I mean her kids, all of them. I can only imagine what they went thru and continue to go thru. But over all, I'm happy a person gets to live their life how they want.

    Story
    "Jenner is sweet, funny and honest...good person!"
    What did you love best about The Secrets of My Life?

    Like most complex stories, it's not like Jenner just decided to become a woman one day. It was an issue that was intertwined throughout his life but--since he grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s--there were no words or precedent for what he was feeling. Instead, he did his best to create traditional families and be a good person. I don't know a lot about this issue, so I thought it was interesting to hear about Jenner's desires (we all have them, in various forms) and efforts to first stay busy to avoid them and then find ways to hide them. The book's message is: "Don't do that; live your true life."


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes glimpses of Jenner's very interesting life, from the Olympics to the Playboy Mansion. I remember the first time I flipped to "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and thinking, "Wait, is that Bruce Jenner? Why is he wandering around this crazy house?" Haha. But, in the book, Jenner has nothing but good things to say about his ex Kris (I think I read that she is upset, but I don't know how she could be). He said that she was social in a special/intimate way, organized, great mother, terrific in business...she gets the most compliments in the book.


    What about Caitlyn Jenner - exclusive introduction and Erin Bennett ’s performance did you like?

    I like Jenner's voice and was hoping that she would do the audio, but I thought it was nice that she explained that it would have been difficult because of dyslexia.


    Any additional comments?

    When the Vanity Fair cover came out, I thought, "Wait, no 'K' in Caitlyn?" In the book, Jenner said spelling it with a "K" would have been "creepy." Good point.

    "Blah"

    Blah blah blah, poor me and happy me. Brag book, nothing compelling. End of story. Just not interesting. I don't have a connection or more of an understanding like should after hearing his story.

    Story
    "Not Much of a Secret"

    I applaud Ms. Jenner for her journey and the transition into her life. However her actions throughout her entire life were selfish and self serving. She blames everything in her life on her gender issues. We all have issues, the difference is adults take responsibility for them.

    "Nothing to see here"

    Disappointed because I learned nothing from this book. Basically Bruce hides until Caitlyn comes to life.

    Story
    "Honest. Real."

    A bit hard to follow at times. I found it rather sad that although she admitted she abandoned her children, she did not seem remorseful for doing so. I applaud Caitlyn for being true to herself. It took great courage to make a move such as this while being such a public figure, but I couldn't help but feel this book was written only to make money.
