Terry My Daughter's Life and Death Struggle with Alcoholism Ú McGovern's story is riveting as he investigates Daughter's Life eBook #8608 his daughter's life reads her anguished and Terry My MOBI #204 accusatory diaries interviews her friends and doctors sifts through the sordid police and medical. I picked this book up at a library sale I just might donate it back The title suggests that the book is about McGovern's daughter Terry but I couldn't help but notice how many times political campaigns entered in And name dropping It became irritating pretty uick As well as McGovern's many parenthetical phrases to turn the focus on himself in the primaries all of which I won McGovern's tone was defensive throughout the book he repeatedly emphasized how the disease of alcoholism is genetic how it has little to do with emotional upsets in childhood the depression chaos and self destruction therein is explained by the alcoholism itself Cart before the horse in my opinion Somehow McGovern convinces himself that his and Eleanor's upbringing had little or nothing to do with his daughter Terry's problems The former senator and his wife uickly ushered Terry pregnant and at the tender age of 15 out of state to have an illegal abortion But heck no this didn't have anything to do with her later self destructive behaviors His many many days months years on the campaign and lecture circuit also didn't have anything to do with it He virtually ignored his wife's postpartum depression as well expecting her to bear the brunt of raising five children even having her drive them cross country while he finished up a press conference Five young kids I found his arguments faulty his reasoning inconsistent his lack of insight appalling and his whole tone arrogant and self serving I wish someone else had written this book A journalist who would have interviewed people someone who would not have discounted Terry's own entries from her diaries Terry exaggerated her sister's jealousies I felt so bad for Terry She got a raw deal Even after her tragic death characters Ö PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ George S.

George S. McGovern ´ 6 review

George S. McGovern ´ 6 review Memoir former Senator George McGovern recalls the events leading up to his daughter Terry's death as a result of alcoholism What McGovern learned from Terry is an unforgettable poignant tale certain to engender controversy and compassio. I found this to be an excellent account of a tragic situation The extensive use of Terry's journals and so her voice add the element of having a person who ultimately died from alcoholism tell us what that is like The author's research and commentary on alcoholism and treatment for alcoholism are also excellentI've read reviews that criticize George McGovern's attempts to explain alcoholism and offer suggestions for treatment based on the fact that another of his children went on to die of the disease I don't find that this takes away from his attempts Alcoholism remains tragically difficult to understand to treat and to recover from and no book by an anguished father is going to change thatThe book is interesting and entertaining as much a book about a true tragedy can be I know it has already helped many people see a problem in themselves or loved ones seek treatment and achieve the recovery that eluded Terry
