didn't know her life was so complicated and what a shame that she had all the tools of everything being at her beckon call. too bad and she is still paying for it but it was a good read--kinda like you sitting in a kitchen and drinking an glass of wine and interviewing her. She seems down to earth.
This autobiography was pretty good. She had a very interesting life. A lot of the details were a little it of a surpise, drug use, divorce, and abuse, etc. Overall, the book was very fun to read.

Natalie Cole has been to hell and back twice. It was interesting to read about her time at UMass Amherst (my alma mater) and in Springfield, where she got hooked on heroin.
An interesting read. Kudos for her overcoming addictions.
Loved this book!
