I picked this up on a whim and I got absorbed pretty quickly. It's a pretty well-done autobiography with enough introspection and perspective to make you forgive her admitted personal failings. Which are relatively few considering the hard work and dedication that went into her career. I knew she'd been the one that dubbed the voices for Deborah Kerr (King and I), Natalie Wood (West Side Story), and Audrey Hepburn (My Fair Lady), but I didn't know anything else about her. It was fascinating to read about how those three movies were made (there was more to it than I thought) and to hear about the rest of Nixon's very full career. Additionally, she is a two time breast cancer survivor, which was of interest. The second time she was doing a Broadway show. She only missed two weeks of performances for a mastectomy and then never missed a show while doing chemo. Strong lady.
