Summary Throughout a career spanning nearly three decades, Ricky Martin drew a clear line between the person within and the one he shared with the world, choosing to keep his deepest emotions to himself. Now the very private Martin opens up about where life has brought him and the remarkable journey it took to get there. In Me , Ricky Martin shares defining memories of his early childhood, his family's sacrifices to support his dreams, and coming-of-age experiences in the famed boy band Menudo-what they cost him and what they taught him. He explores his struggles with his identity during the 'Livin' La Vida Loca' phenomenon, reflects on accepting his sexuality, and admits to the sometimes oppressive consequences of denial and of fame. He also recounts some of his most profound milestones, like the travels to India that led to his founding the People of Children project and the realization of the greatest blessing of his life: his children. Ricky Martin's story is about his enlightening life lessons, the relationships that allowed him to embrace love, and the crucial decisions he has made on the path to becoming the man-and the father-he is today.
