    Segmented Notes from Kathie

    I read all the reviews posted here before writing mine because I can't seem to pinpoint highlights of this book even though I just finished it yesterday!

    I was somewhat disappointed with this book, maybe because I was looking for Kathie to reveal a bit more about the details of her career life but perhaps I will be more satisfied when I read her other book "I Can't Believe I Said That!"

    The book was an easy read and I agree with one of the reviewers, that you can pick it up and drop it down any time you want. I didn't find it to be especially inspiring, perhaps because I'm a woman in my mid 20s. It seems that the reviewers from the 40s and thereafter found it to be a worthy read. I agree that Kathie shows off her humor in this book and that's why I gave it 3 stars. In some chapters, Kathie talks about how her style of raising her children reflects her parents' style. I found her ending (the very last pages of her book) to be very inspirational and actually marked down her words and copied them onto a journal for me to reference later on in life. But other than that the book is just a composition of random anecdotes (2-3 pages chapters) and it's just one of those books where if the reader finds the chapter interesting s/he will continue reading and if not s/he can skip onto the next chapter without the feeling that s/he missed something crucial by doing so (guilty of the latter).

    for those who like references to having lived life and to look backward

    She's funny on The Today Show -- her book not so. Some of the sage remarks are "ah ha" moments if you have been through the same things and noticed "things" along the way. I expected her, somehow, to be funnier, a little lighter..
