Shirley shares some of the conclusions she has reached, after a long and very fascinatingly full life, and about what she no longer spends time worrying or thinking about. In a conversational style, as if talking to her dearest friends, and with her exceptional and wonderful sense of humor, she tells of her boundless curiosity and her endless journey to search out answers to the big questions in life. I love that she's lived her life "her way", without caring about what others may think of her. She is such a hoot and so witty, wise and intelligent. I loved sharing in her extravagant experiences where we who couldn't afford to take part of and that her open mind guided and led her. Her insight into 2012, Dec. 21st , is a bit unsettling, but all encompassing and is almost a satisfying answer to all of our curiosity. I love that she is so well versed in politics, the hearts and minds of people and is a spiritual seeker. She is an amazing woman and I intend to read this one yet again. I don't want to miss a word!

    Meh.

    I have not even finished the book yet, but even with the last five chapters left unread, I am not nearly as impressed as I thought I would be. Instead of a memoir, Shirley seems to have just written a collection of essays (some of which are incredibly short) and put them together into a book.

    I found that she didn't go much in to detail about the things I found interesting, and elaborated immensely on topics that really had nothing to do with the rest. The chapters are all over the place, and the majority of what I enjoyed were her recollections of Dean, Frank, Liz, and Mr. Hawking. When I read a 'memoir' those are the kind of things I am looking for.

    Shirley is very intelligent, however my purchasing of her book was not to feel as though I was geting lectured throughout. All in all, I was rather bored, but did enjoy certain gems and quotes in the material. I give this a big fat MEH, and I'm over it.
