The intimate, inside story of the ultimately tragic life of multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse (“Rehab,” “Back to Black”)  is told by the one person most able to tell it—Amy’s closest advisor, her inspiration, and best friend: her father, Mitch. Amy, My Daughter includes exclusive, never-before-seen photos and paints an open and honest portrait of one of the greatest musical talents of our time.


Mitch Winehouse is Amy's father. He has one book translated in several languages.


REVIEW:
What a powerful read, and at the end, I'm in tears.
As a parent, I couldn't imagine having to bury your child. Adult or not. It is something I know I wouldn't ever get over, so my heart cries for her dad.
This book is from Mitch's point-of-view, and being her dad and best friend, he knew more than anyone.
I remember watching it all unfold in the media, them calling her 'Wino'. Seeing her dad's view really opened my eyes to her situation. She wasn't lost, or even a druggie, though at one point she had to kick drugs. She was a drunk. A fatal drunk. She wanted to be sober, but was caught in a cycle.
Such a sad way to go. Yet, if you look at that '27 club', weren't they all drunks and super talented?!
If you're a fan, read this. You will gain so much respect for her and her dad. More than you already have. If you're not a fan, read it. You probably have some misconceptions about her like I did. Thank the media for that....

5/5

  1. Sounds like a good one. I saw the film about her awhile ago and really felt for her after hearing her story.

  2. Such a shame what she did to herself! It seemed like she just control her addiction.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
