I just read this book, having recently won a copy on eBay. What a shame it is no longer in print; much as I loved I'm With the Band, I enjoyed this well-written sequel even more for its incisive, introspective look at evolving as a person and learning to make peace with the past. To all the hypocrites who condemn Pamela Des Barres as an immoral bimbo, I say, we've all had incidents in our past, sexual and otherwise, that we are not necessarily proud of or would have done differently had we been older and wiser. Des Barres was extremely brave to chronicle her failing marriage, becoming a mother, death of her father, search for spirituality, and learning to see her own shortcomings-codependency and avoidance of confrontation at any cost-with brutal honesty as well as a sense of humor and optimism. Details of Des Barres' Hollywood lifestle, such as being friends with such celebrities as the Zappa family and many others, also makes this book a fascinating read. However, what really hit home for me were the universal experiences that every human being goes through: the journey of finding one's sense of self-worth and purpose, learning to work through life's pain and setbacks to be strong and change for the better (always easier said than done!),and learning to find joy in every moment of every day. Pamela Des Barres, with her hard-won inner strength, sweet nature and spirit of adventure, is truly an inspiration.
