Good Book!!

I found the book to be well written and well researched. The only negative I found was that the author did not delve into more detail as to what Ms. Fonda has been doing for the last 10+ years of her life since she left Ted Turner.

As an aside, I really wish people would stop giving the book (which they haven't read) one star reviews because they believe Ms. Fonda is a traitor. It is fine if you dislike Ms. Fonda and her politics, but the book itself should be judged on its own merit.

Please Don't

Please out of respect for all Viet Vets don't buy this book. My father died at 58 from Agent Orange poisoning after suffing for years. Our vets did not receive the honor they were due when they returned (if the returned) home. She needs to show some grace now and stop...
Please out of respect for all Viet Vets don't buy this book. My father died at 58 from Agent Orange poisoning after suffing for years. Our vets did not receive the honor they were due when they returned (if the returned) home. She needs to show some grace now and stop bringing up bad memories by putting herself back in the public eye. Please honor our vets now by not buying this book.

    Stuff you never knew

    Initially wanting to learn about the why's and when's of her political life, I ended up adoring and admiring this women. Indeed she was politically naive, but not afraid to speak her mind and take the consequences. Although I don't agree with her politics, I can't help wishing I had her verve. She has inspired me in many ways. This book helped me to learn and love Fonda, and kept me interested throughout.

    Just because I don't agree...

    I cannot help it, Jane Fonda is a very interesting person. I am as different from her as possible, literally, morally, philosophically, politically. Still her story and this book make for fascinating reading.
