    WOW! An articulate sex symbol with brains! What will the world come to!

    In her book Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage, she shows insightful thoughts, good logic, and a brain which has continued to develop. The beginning chapters on her early life and synopsis of her career were extremely interesting. The insights into her father, and her family's influences on her development and mental attitudes that she displayed throughout her life, were revealing and thought provoking. The mid chapters with her philosophy of life were a bit general and did not do much to enlighten this reader. Her chapters on style, fashion, hair, makeup, etc., were interesting and certainly well developed. The only downside is that in using her personal experiences, she gives advice which will probably not apply to all readers since there is so much variation among women. Not many can afford the dresses she prefers, the makeup she likes to use, the professional help she can hire, or the trips she can take for rest, relaxation, and beauty. Her last section on moving on was artfully and honestly handled. Her open discussion of uncertainties, change, and coping with life's unexpected surprises, was very uplifting.
    This book is worth reading to gain insight into a sex symbol's likes, thinking, and attitude toward life as an aging Boomer. Bravo to Raquel Welch for having the courage to tackle something like this and being so straight forward and honest.

    Getting to Know Raquel

    If you're looking for a kiss and tell, this is not it.

    This book is Raquel leaving her legacy. She tells us who she is, and explains her philosophy about life and what it means to be a woman.

    Her tone is very warm, almost conversational. The book is loaded with surprisingly useful advice and counsel that covers a broad range of topics of interest to most women. Raquel hopes that her readers will benefit from her experience, while understanding that many young women will not realize that it applies to them.

    She relates some amusing anecdotes in order to illustrate her points.
    This book was an easy read. I did not want to put it down and I finished it over a weekend.
