I bought this a couple of years ago after seeing Valerie on the Oprah show. I was interested to find out more about the woman who had been married to Eddie Van Halen.
While this book was interesting I thought that she glossed over a rather important subject - her own drug use - instead she focused on her struggle with her weight and the numerous diets that she tried (including the cocaine diet - who knew taking that could kill your apetite??).
It was surprising to know that just 4 years into her marriage she realised she'd made a mistake but was determined to try and make her marriage work. It's clear that neither party were faithful in their marriage, but Valerie didn't make the move to end her marriage until just over 20 years together and with a 10 year old son.
She was incredibly hard on her ex-husband, but I understand the stress she was under trying to look after her son.
I know she's written more books, but I don't think I'll be reading them.
