thank you Ladies....
A lifelong Heart fan, a 49 year old Mom of 3, daughter of a marine, and 3rd of 3 sisters, I read more into this book than just the music --
Speaking of the music however, who didn't want to be a Beatle, I ask you?
Other reviewers talked about preferring to hear about the musical years, rather than the 'family life'. I, however, really enjoyed hearing about the family ties that shaped the strong, independant women they've become - they were able to fearlessly channel their creativity into the music we identified with....unafraid to cross the boundaries that Janis had approached - - Heart has torn through those barriers and never looked back...
Hearing the struggles, , , Ann -with her self-image, the experience of having her children, and her journey into sobriety - - Nancy- the difficulties of a marriage, feeling self-conscious in front of other Moms, reminds us that we're all just the same - Its refreshing to realize again that images are just that - sometimes a shield we all hide behind. I think the Wilson sisters have invited us into their lives and personal battles through their songs, finding a way to heal, and lets us know 'this too shall pass'..... I, for one, am grateful- as I continue to enjoy my favorites (Dreamboat Annie, Little Queen, Bebe le Strange), and explore the recent (Red Velvet Car, & Fanatic) - as well as helping to create a new generation of Heart fans - my 11 year old son is a huge fan! At Heart's next venture in our area, i plan to have him there to hear Ann belt it out, and Nancy make that guitar sing!
My parting comment is to let Ann know to "keep it simple"... after 23 years on my own journey, I can attest that the best part is just beginning.... Thank you Ladies....

Working Class Hero Is Something To Be
A simple and intersting telling of the truth as they see it. Openess with no pompous bull about their talents or greatness and much about their journey you did not know. Should have MANY MANY MORE PICTURES!

Ann and Nancy Wilson are golden, in my view. Excellent in their field.
This would have been an excellent autobiography, but the disgusting lack
of respect by Harper Collins re: editing, has ruined it.
I counted dozens of typos, screwed up sentences, and other editing problems.
As a writer and English teacher myself, I blame the idiot Charles R. Cross,
who obviously sent in to HC a careless manuscript.
But HC itself should be completely ashamed of the disservice they have done
two incredible women who, by contrast, are hard-working, and excellent in their
area of music writing and performing.
HC must be hiring 21 year old idiots in their editorial department.
It is disgraceful, and disgusting to allow such a lousy, unedited manuscript through.
Harper Collins and Charles R. Cross: have you no shame?
I felt sick reading the lovely acknowledgements to these swine by Ann Wilson,
who was so sabotaged by this disgusting company.

I thought Ann & Nancy where very honest and straight forward! I coudnt put the book down. At times I felt it was scattered or confusing but in any event I thought it was a excellent book and I would recomend it to anyone who enjoys not only Heart but biographys!
