This is a great book filled with insight into the real life of Shirley Jones. The details of her marriage to Jack Cassidy are very interesting. Her account of her relationship with step-son David Cassidy is eye opening. A very good book. Highly recommended.

I am an admirer of Ms. Jones, and met her a few years ago.  She is a lovely and gracious woman.  But this memoir was not impressive.  For starters, it was brief.  Some interesting subject matter was merely skimmed over, while other parts were seemingly added in for shock value.  I admire a woman who is not ashamed of her sexual conquests, but I feel that those were added in at the last minute and without the proper context.  And to talk about the size of her stepson's schlong was just creepy.

    Very immaturely written self indulgent book.  Save your money, unless you want another Hollywood same old story 
    Poorly written Hollywood trash.

    Gives new meaning to the expression "Keep your hands to yourself."  I'm a Shirley Jones fan, but this was a creepy book.

    An interesting book and a quick read. I enjoyed the book, although she didn't need to go into her 'sexuality' as much as she did. Some things she skipped over. But on the whole a quick and enjoyable read.

    People are people: we all have strengths and foibles. Some things, though, are best left private. Part of me admires Ms. Jones for letting it all hang out, but most of me wishes I could forget what I read-- too much information!
