Dionne Warwick made her singing debut in church at the request of her grandfather, the Reverend Elzae Warrick, when she was six years old. No one knew then that she would become an international music legend, but what she knew—as words of wisdom passed down from her grandfather—was that "if you can think it, you can do it." And she did it. Dionne released the first of more ...more

Pretty good, but not as juicy or as revealing as I thought it would be.

Dionne has an interesting story to tell, but I found the book jumpy and hard to read.

First I want to say that I love Ms. Dionne Warwick and think she's a legend. I was very excited to read this book. But the book is all over the place. The book is not written chronologically at all and often times moves from chapter to chapter leaving the reader to wonder why/how things are connected or why they are even being discussed at that moment. You do get some in depth and a deep understanding of her professional life but you are in a lot of ways left in the dark about her personal life. ...more

This book doesn't reveal anything more than you can find out about Dionne on Wikipedia or any documentary about her, but I wasn't expecting a huge reveal anyways, since she is such a private person. Mostly the book talks about her recording sessions, charity work and awards. There is so much name dropping in this book, it's crazy. However, the people with whom she has rubbed shoulders also fascinate me, so I enjoyed making the connection. The book was released before Whitney Houston's death (her ...more

Recommends it for: fans of Dionne Warwick, fans of oldies and dusties music
Recommended to Mike by: found for myself
When one thinks of music from the 70s, one name that might come to mind is Dionne Warwick.

You might remember her for songs such as "I'll Never Love this Way Again" or "Deja Vu"....or for anyone whos a fan of 80s music you may remember her part in "We Are the World" or her later hit "That's What Friends are For". This book goes into her life from her start in Gospel Music to her fandom in Brazil.

A good book for fans of the icon Dionne Warwick.

A pretty odd read. It wasn't even in chronological order. I also found it pretty embarrassing how she seemed fonder of Whitney (Houston) than she did her own son. It just wasn't at all very good. Everything she wrote about in this could have easily been found out with some simple online research.
