I adore this 'Ordinary People change the World' series Brad Meltzer has put together He illuminates some of the most interesting people I am not a big sports fan unless is ice skating or the olympics so I didn't know anything about Billie Jean King accept her name There were women tennis players before her and after but what put her on the map was that this was the late 60s and men still thought they were better than women There was this loud bully in the media that was in his 50s and retired He saw the women fighting for eual pay as the male tennis players and he challenged Billy Jean to a match a men vs women match Billie Jean wouldn't do it but this other #1 woman did He beat this woman and Billie Jean got mad and challenged him to a match They set the match up in the Astrodome where 90000 people came to see the 'battle of the sexes' match It sold tickets than some superbowls This was 1973 She spent months practicing and hit high fly balls while the other guy didn't think it would be that difficult Well Billie Jean cleaned the floor with this bully Who doesn't love seeing a bully lose When I get to see Karma hit a person who deserves it I admit to finding so much satisfaction in that I love people who come in and don't let other people tell them who they are They say this is what I'm going to do deal with it She did marry a man Roger who was a tennis player for a while but she figured out that she was gay and eventually they split friendly and she married a woman Fun fact she was called a tomboy as a child and she didn't like that term She played like a girl strong powerful and she didn't think it great that she needed a different label because she played like a girl I love that idea What these books teach me about these famous people who do something is that they work hard play hard and never stop No one can stop them They practice than anyone else and they believe in themselves than others They find those that will help them Then with a little luck they make it It's in every one of these books As usual I learned plenty in this story
