    One thought on “My Life, Deleted: A Memoir”

    1. Meh.This memoir was horribly written, but I d be willing to overlook that if the story was compelling It s hard to feel sorry for somebody complaining that they are worried about mounting bills, upset because their health insurance might lapse and they won t be able to pay for a 870 test, yet in the next breath wonder if they should take the BMW or the Porsche to visit their 325,000 yacht Meanwhile, the sixteen year old daughter drives a Tahoe and two other cars sit idle in the garage In one par [...]

    2. It s an interesting story, and I am sure they are lovely people, but I just didn t feel them I know it probably has to do with me than them, but when they were planning vacations to Hawaii and Paris and wondering how they were going to pay their bills, well, I disconnected As annoying as this is, I think that if they didn t have the financial resources that they had I would ve cared about them The amnesia aspect is interesting, and a little scary, but even that was a little flat We were being [...]

    3. It is harder to think of a intriguing memoir than one that is written by someone who has completely lost all their memory from a seemingly less than traumatic head injury from a fall in a bathroom Add in that he was an ex NFL football player, successful business man and committed family man, and you have the makings of a dramatic story or so you would think Unfortunately the book was overly detailed, plodded and dragged at times and was just not well written But overlooking it s faults, I reall [...]

    4. He may have lost his memory, but his ego is intact I wanted to like this book fellow south side chicagoan , but he makes it really difficult to feel any empathy or sympathy for him Not worth the 2.99 it cost to download

    5. It seems impossible to imagine that one s memories, such an integral part of who we are, could be deleted How Scott and his wife battled thru medical tests, everyday life and family dynamics presents an intriguing story.

    6. On a recent flight to Florida, I opened my guilty pleasure for my in flight entertainment Yep, I was ready to go armed with the latest edition of People magazine One of my favorite sections of People has always been the Book Reviews and that is where I discovered My Life, Deleted Once on the ground, it wasn t long before I made my way to the nearest bookstore to purchase my copy because I was too impatient to wait until I got home to get to the library and I figured I d have that in flight time [...]

    7. I made it 75% through before quitting This guy is an asshole How anyone could find him inspirational is beyond me He s filled with anger issues and petty masculinity issues, and it s clear from his book that this did not start with his accident Everything he says and does is filtered through a lens of Be a MAN He has a felony charge that could have been avoided in he had confided in his wife, but instead he decided to hide his plan from her Because, you know, women can t handle stress it s not l [...]

    8. Some reviewers have complained about the many details of Scott s day to day existence I met Jim for lunch at Smith s Cafe, where he had a fish taco with a Dr Pepper and I had a stromboli and Coke, even though I had no real idea what a stromboli was , but I thought that added to the experience of recent details filling the 47 year void He knew so little about anything, that at first I was surprised he could even communicate at all His wife s asking him to pick up a bag of potato chips at the supe [...]

    9. Oh, dear I m not going to fault the Bolzans for being wealthy, though this book could have been slightly sensitive to its likely mostly less wealthy readers They ve obviously had hardship come knocking, not as much of the financial kind, but there are other traumas life can throw at people Not only does Scott lose all long term memory, he doesn t even have a cool story as too how The poor man slipped in a bathroom Can you imagine losing your very self from falling in the bathroom Moreover, Scot [...]

    10. This is a memoir written by a man who has retrograde amnesia He sustained a head injury after slipping and falling in the bathroom at work He wakes up with no idea of who he is, who his family is, and lacks basic knowledge of the world Fascinating He has to relearn everything not speech or how to walk He is turned into a 46 year old virgin because he doesn t even remember what sex is, much less having it He has to relearn what Christmas is He has no idea that he used to play football and fly pla [...]

    11. Scott Bolzan, a successful businessman and former NFL offensive lineman, was on his way up to his office in a downtown Phoenix office building when he decided to stop off at a restroom on the main level As he entered, he slipped on something His feet flew out from under him and he fell backward, hitting his head so hard on the tile floor that it split open to the bone The result of this accident left Scott with the worst case of retrograde amnesia that had ever been recorded In this heartfelt me [...]

    12. The reason why this book didn t resonate with me was because I didn t really feel any empathy for this man I don t know what it was but he just didn t appeal to me or make care about him Because of this I think I criticized every word of what was written in this book I thought the idea of the story appealed to me, but not the subject of the story.

    13. Meh This memoir was terribly written I did enjoy reading about his experience and found myself cheering for him to get his memories back The writing style didn t flow much and I didn t find myself flipping the pages in great anticipation of how it would turn out I did however find it incredible that he survived such an experience and that he had such great support.

    14. I loved the book Lots of food for thought We are really defined by our memories I would like to have understood a bit why the apparent lack of pursuit of legal action, especially in light of the fact that Scott s life changed so dramatically I would recommend this book as a must read.

    15. There s not enough creativity or compelling writing put into this memoir to give it a chance I picked up the book because I m trying to research about amnesia Unfortunately, I didn t find out what it s like to go through daily life with amnesia because Scott Bolzan insists on completely avoiding any scene that would describe it Instead, we just get that the man s head hurt, or that he was anxious When he was talking about beating his son to death because he was taking drugs, it seemed less frust [...]

    16. This was a great read The writer was refreshingly vulnerable, able to expose every part of himself in his writing A fascinating story about reinventing ones self and learning to love all over again.

    17. A very compelling story from an ex NFL player about the accident that made him lose his memory and the long slow painful recovery that will never be finished.

    18. Scott Bolzan, head of a jet chartering company, slipped in the bathroom at work one day in 2008 and fell backward, like, right onto his head As a result, he suffered brain damage and somehow erased just about every memory he ever had His diagnosis was profound retrograde amnesia Along with severe insomnia and cracking headaches, Bolzan surely had a dramatic time of it, but the authors present his story with little panache and much repetition Reinserting himself into his own life proved difficult [...]

    19. This book was ok It was selected as a book club read so that s why I picked it up I really don t think there was enough material here to compile a book I found myself reading the same scenario over and over again and thinking, Haven t I already read this I think the book was poorly written and gave extraneous detail that no one cares about like what the author ordered when he went out to eat and what everyone who was with him ordered too.I also couldn t identify with the author because he was ca [...]

    20. I liked this book I ll say 3.5 stars Not so much for the writing but the idea of it was facinating to me This man falls on his head and loses all of his memory from his previous 46 years When this plot occurs in fiction, the person roams around not knowing his family and friends or where he lives In this true story, his wife and kids come to the hospital, bring him home but they are complete strangers to him He doesn t remember how to run his business or even basic information and life skills He [...]

    21. I checked My Life, Deleted out from my local library I very rarely read non fiction I have enough challenges in my own life without hearing about other people s, but I came across this book in a blog and the blurb caught my attention Geez, your whole life wiped away No memories, no concept of time, or relationships No understanding of what wife means, and worried this caring person will abandon you once their job, whatever it is what does a wife do What is family What is a home , is complete The [...]

    22. I am not a huge fan of non fiction however this book didn t really feel like how I m used to a non fiction book to be Some parts were boring and tedious but I got through it Having a knowledge of who Joan is and having met her personally long before the accident I do have empathy for them Think about it this way they built this life style, they weren t handed it Scott was the bread winner All of a sudden the main bread winner who was able to make the money for those cars, and yachts no longer is [...]

    23. I ended up skimming through this book as I found I did not really warm to the author and found him rather bombastic and a bit of a bully I have no doubt that the author suffered a severe head injury and was in considerable pain for a long time I found it a bit unrealistic that they were struggling financially when he had a yacht to sell, several luxury cars and an assortment of expensive watches, to name but a few of his over the top luxury assets I also found it a bit of cheek that he applied f [...]

    24. 3.5 True Story.A man hits his head and goes to the emergency room Little by little, he loses all his conscious memory He doesn t know who his wife is, and by the way, what is a wife A bedroom And who are all these people who know him And most of all, who is he This is a story of permanent memory loss Scott Bolzan is assured that his memory will return He waits in vain and is forced to begin his life over Re learn things he knew by heart before, and be re introduced to his family and friends It i [...]

    25. Let me begin by saying i do not recommend tjis book I have a family member with TBI and I thought this book would be helpful Sadly, I learned very little and gave it 2 stars instead of 1 only because I learned that there s a test brain injury can be detected with, even though it doesn t show up on an MRI This book is told entirely from Scott s perspective, even though his wife was a co author As the family member, I wanted to hear her feelings Instead, everything just seemed to work itself out w [...]

    26. Many things in this book were somewhat annoying too many cars, too much conspicuous consumption too much glossing over legal and ethical issues etc There were parts of the story that resonated with me than not The helplessness of this man in getting back to life any life his confusion in learning to negotiate his new world the frustration in redeveloping his marital relationship and perhaps, most of all, the difficulties, pain, mistakes made, and frustration, in dealing with a family member who [...]

    27. Let me begin by saying i do not recommend tjis book I have a family member with TBI and I thought this book would be helpful Sadly, I learned very little and gave it 2 stars instead of 1 only because I learned that there s a test brain injury can be detected with, even though it doesn t show up on an MRI This book is told entirely from Scott s perspective, even though his wife was a co author As the family member, I wanted to hear her feelings Instead, everything just seemed to work itself out w [...]

    28. So what would it feel like to awaken from a fall with a splitting headache and no memories at all The Bolzano recount the ordeals of relearning the world and that aspect of the book is intriguing However the look at their lives prior to the accident is appalling Their heroin addicted son becomes a sympathetic character as you read details of the multi addictions of his parents A past felony, obesity requiring a stomach band, multiple suits regarding his business, addictions to expensive cars, a [...]
