Misty May-Treanor was so excited about her autobiography being released Tuesday, she said she went out and bought a copy for herself.
The two-time Olympic gold medalist in beach volleyball posted a photo on her facebook fan page. The picture is of May-Treanor smiling with her new book.
"Book comes out today … both nervous and excited. I hope those that read it will enjoy it … thanks everyone for your support," May-Treanor's status reads.
The former Newport Harbor High standout's autobiography, "Misty, Digging Deep in Volleyball and Life," was written with Jill Lieber Steeg. In the book, May-Treanor, the all-time winningest beach volleyball player, reveals her past.
May-Treanor grew up with an alcoholic mother who became violent when drunk and a father who also had a drinking habit. Her father, Butch, soberted up after he was jailed for drunk driving.
