Tina does a good job telling her story. She tells about her trials, her triumphs, meeting the love of her life and marrying him 27 yrs later. She was faced with health issues and family tragedies. She finds grace and purpose in her darkest hrs. Her story is inspiring.

I wanted more. We ALWAYS want more from Tina. I remember seeing her in a concert at Brewer Fieldhouse in 1970 and I will never forget it. She's such a powerful performer it is difficult to let her be just a woman. That's what her current frailties are telling us now: she's just a woman. We all face difficulties as we age and she seems to be doing well spiritually if not physically. For a follow-up I watched the youtube interview done by Oprah with Erwin and Tina.

I enjoyed this book, it was a quick read as I skipped about 1/3 of it which was about her time with Ike. Her childhood was devoid of love so maybe that explains how she was vulnerable to his abuse. The last third of her book was interesting, about her new husband, her deepening Buddhist practice which she says has helped her through her problems and her health problems. Also interesting was how she gets into her performing persona, it seems like the day to day Tina is so different from how she is when she performs and she explains that. All around inspiring woman.

Tina Turner's birthday was yesterday (11/26). She is 79.

My Love Story is different from I, Tina. Ms. Turner is older and wiser and gives readers the benefit of decades of candid introspection. I was sad to learn how drastically her health has declined since her marriage to Erwin Bach.

Enjoyed it, it was a quick read. However I didnt feel Tina was really sharing much new. At least 1/2 the book was yet about Ike. there wasn't anything too exciting about the other half.
