Ms. Candice Bergen is not only an exceptional actress, it turns out that she is also a brilliant writer /photographer.
This is such an interesting book, which left me, the reader, wanting more. C.B. describes the kind of childhood many of us would
dream we'd had: she was a child of Hollywood, experiencing birthday parties bigger than life, famous parents with amazing friends;
the book could have turned into a superficial sugary tale. However, Bergen's high intelligence, her descriptions of the unexpected roads that life takes us all down,
her own searching - and her truthfulness - makes this not only a enjoyable read, it is also quite an inspiration and a kick in the pants to the us,
the readers, as well.
The moral of the story is : get out there and do something exciting with YOUR life! Be hungry and curious! Take part! Grow to be a responsible person
and use your talents well!
Ms. Candace Bergen : thank you for your witty, wise, brilliant Shirley Schmidt- and thank you for this book. More, please!
