This one is okay...I kind of skipped around and read the chapters that caught my attention. Basically in each chapter she tells you what she is done with such as "I'm over politics or fear taught through religion" or some chapters she tells you "I'll never get over good lighting" etc. Some of it is interesting from a woman who has had an amazing career and still continues to work.

Sharon, you will like this....
My favorite part is the story she tells about Danny Kaye...apparently he would fly to get her when she was on the set of a movie and then fly her away to a favorite restaurant of his then take her back in time to work. He did this once by flying (he was the pilot)paris...taking her to his favorite chinese restaurant in New York (where he sometimes cooked) and then flew her back to paris. He also remodeled her kitchen. She makes the statement "We had a fabulous relationship, full of love, starlit night skies, food and humor." she was apparently "with him" up until the time he died...she states that he didn't want a funeral..so it didn't happen.

Shirley MacLaine and Danny Kaye..do you think they danced together :) I hope so...
