An admirer of John Curry for a very long time, I had a feeling I would be depressed if I read this book and I was correct. He was a typical bipolar person before that diagnosis was well known. Isn't it strange that most greatly talented people suffer so much. Having a mother, sister and daughter with various degrees of bipolarity, John's ups and downs are very familiar to me. I even have a touch of it and it can be pure heaven or pure hell. I'm just so thankful he persevered and gave us what he could of his beautiful talent and we can still watch it whenever we want with Youtube. I have to see his Olympic performances almost every day and I will never tire of them. To read that Don Quixote was an epiphany that came to him quickly was so interesting - so many amazing things happen that way!!
An amazing life and a wonderful book that I've already listened to twice.
Bless you dear John - you will never be forgotten.
But whilst fascinating the narration felt monotonous and so hard to binge listen to. In saying this Curry's story is completely fascinating and he comes across to me as thoroughly unlikable.
