Format: Hardcover
Shirley MacLaine captured the minds and hearts of millions of fans by some of her best performances in several Hollywood movies, especially the Academy award winning movie "Apartment" with Jack Lemmon. In this book she shares very intimate and somewhat controversial ideas of life, but this is not unexpected from Shirley as she always has been a social revolutionary. She says that she has learned to ease up on worry, scheming for films or roles, planning for better surroundings, and feeling anger at American leaders who operate politically rather than humanely. She says; she is getting freer from the expectations of the external world. In fact, the one worry she can't seem to give up and get over is the fear of being lonely. Her thoughts, at times becomes quite intense and metaphysical; when she observes that she has found that people are looking for something to fill the loneliness inside them; It doesn't matter how wealthy or well situated they are, the thought turns to why are we here, what is the point of life, is God real, are we alone in the universe?

When she was in 50s, MacLaine says that she was unhappy at getting a lot of grandmother roles, even though in her own mind, she is still young and bouncy. She speaks very candidly about her best friend Elizabeth Taylor, whom she calls, a very down-to-earth person, loyal, funny and a woman to be adored completely. MacLaine is honest about open marriage, sex and living fully. She insists that having an open mind about life is helpful. She admits she had had "an awful lot of lovers". She often fell for the leading men she worked with, although she wasn't attracted to Jack Lemmon, her co-star in The Apartment, because he was too nice, or Jack Nicholson, whom she starred with in Terms of Endearment, because he was too dangerous.

Format: Hardcover
As always Shirley's books are great. Having read several of her previous books I was not left disappointed with this one. It is a very honest and frank view of her view on life. How she has come to terms with her age and lifestyle and is more than happy with her lot. I would recommend any of her books to others as they are an inspirational read.
