Amazing, complex, fascinating

After reading this book, not only do I understand Jane Fonda a bit better, but I understand myself a bit better, also! Extremely well written and deeply felt, I can only say: read it and see for yourself. Wow.

If She takes the responibility for the deaths and suffering she was involved in! For example: The beatings the U.S. P.O.W.'S had to endure after she turned them into the commandant for trying to get the word out who they were and that they were still alive, to thier families! Is her proceeds for her book going to the families that don't have thier loved ones because of the atrocities she committed?

    Poor Me......

    Jane Fonda tries to enlist the reader's empathy in a series of unjustifiable ramblings about the lack of her father's love and the reason it was the impetus for wanting to 'make things better' in her life. Unfortunately, it seems to have turned out poorly for her in most of her efforts. For a woman who graduated from Vassar, I expected a much less shallow version of her chaotic life. There are others who have been through much more and have been deeply enriched and gone on to enrich others. Perhaps, in this third phase of her life, she can truly try to understand herself, see herself as others do lose the farce of being anything other than self-serving. Jane Fonda isn't the first last or only person who has suffered from the lack of her father's love and the absence of her mother. All empathy for that was whisked away when she embarked on her awkward ascent into acting and pseudo-adulthood. This reader is still waiting to see IF she will grow up? I won't be waiting around to find out.

    Spoiled All about me whiner

    I have always felt people were too tough on Jane Fonda! Now after reading her book, I feel she could benefit from a spanking and a few lessons on how to follow through with committments and realizing just how privileged her life has been. A TRUE LOVE FOR YOUR COUNTRY JANE? hmmm...Perhaps you served only to fulfill your self thoughts as if the country was a playground for your ever changing whining! J.d.larkin

    I did not make it all the way through this book. The first few chapters were OK but I feel like it is her way of trying to show her political views and make people feel sorry for her.

    Jane's Soapbox (again)

    I just could not make it all the way through this book. The first few chapters were OK but once I realized this was just Jane's way of trying to drive home her political views, I gave it up.
