My mother sends me stuff from California all the time, little articles, self-help books, and now this little ditty. I think the author Kiki who was Ari's personal secretary is SO fawning over the Onassis family that is never really ventures too far into anything you can sink your teeth into. It is somewhat readable but she repeats herself again and again and belabors many observations of Jackie, Christina and Maria. The prose is over dramatized and frankly, kind of boring.

What can I say? Okay biography, a little outdated since it was written quite a while ago, overall not the best one I've read on the Onassis family. Still it was interesting in parts. The author got her material while working for Mr. Onassis and becoming a friend of the family, but I found accounts of her own life intrusive, particularly since I didn't much care for her.

It's a chicky biography.I am nearly sure that Kili knew much more that I really wanted to read.But as we say in Greece "better to get a little bit than to get nothing at all" !I wish Kiki was a friend of mine to get to know more stuff from the ONASSIS familly.I think after reading her book I will go on holidays at her hotel at the island to know more...

Not as many juicy details as you might hope, but still interesting. However, the excessive notes on what everyone weighed at any given point and time was annoying.

I like Jackie O. I like memoirs. So of course, I liked this! [Although I cringed from time-to-time thinking that the author probably revealed more than the Onassis or Kennedy family would have liked...)

a light hearted and intimate look on how many of us learn our lessons in life in a variety of ways.

This was written with love and from the heart. That's what makes this book awesome
