If I Had Been a Better Man by Dennis LittrellDennis is a fatherless child at the age of four, his mother living on welfare and sailors. He becomes a semi-wild child of the streets and the beach, collecting bottles and working paper routes, running barefoot from June to September.
As a teenager Dennis discovers first love and how to fight bullies, and becomes the poster boy for the Lark Ellen Home for Boys. There is teen angst and self-discovery.
At 18 he joins the army, gets married, is admitted to UCLA (and actually graduates). He becomes a father, a newspaper reporter, a writer achieving royalty publication of his first novel, a poker professional and a guy who smokes too much weed.
Divorce follows and then a new wife and a new career as a teacher of other people’s children, and finally with maturity and some wise and lucky investments Dennis becomes financially secure.
This is a candid memoir about love and chance, heartbreak and a triumphant over circumstances. Dennis writes, “The hardest part about writing an autobiography or a memoir is deciding what to leave in and what to leave out. You want to be fair to family and friends but you also want to be fair to the reader. It’s not easy. I’m sure I will be told how well I did.”

Lest you forget, Taylor Swift is the Queen of songwriting. Whether you hate to love her or love to hate her, you've got to give it to her — she's one talented writer. In fact, she wrote a new song for the country group Little Big Town, and it's — as per usual — an emotional journey. Little Big Town's "Better Man" lyrics by Taylor Swift are gut-wrenching, mature, seriously emotional, and make me wish I had a front porch. We've all been so busy paying attention to Swift's latest album, Reputation , some of us didn't even notice she's also been low-key killing it for Little Big Town.

A Better Man
We all know by now that Taylor Swift is one of the many queens of music. She's a successful artist, yes, but she's also a phenomenal songwriter, writing music that she not only sings herself, but for other artists as well. Seriously, is there anything she can't do? The answer to that is obviously no. And if you haven't listened to the song, I highly encourage you to drop whatever you're doing and listen to it now, because it will bring you on an emotional rollercoaster. The lyrics Swift has penned for this song are pretty revealing, and I think the meaning of Taylor Swift's "Better Man" proves that we've reached an entirely new level of breakup songs.
