- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Bego's biography of the Divine Miss M covers the singer and actress's life from her early years in Hawaii where she was born to her current standing among the entertainment elite. Midler's career as a brassy and bawdy nightclub act moved up a rung when her cover of "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" entered the Top Ten in 1972. By 1979, she had earned an Oscar nomination and a Grammy for her contributions to the film The Rose. Since then she has won over audiences with her performances in Down and Out in Beverly Hills, Ruthless People, Beaches, and The First Wives Club, and earned a second Oscar nomination for For the Boys. As a singer, she's scored successes with "From a Distance" and the number one single "Wind Beneath My Wings." Fans of this all-around entertainer, who continues to appear in films and record music, will find that Bette Midler is the authoritative resource on the star's life.

If you are a Bette Midler fan or just like her, this book is for you. I did read this book 3 times already and now I am on my 4th time and every time I read it I always seem to learn more about the Divine Miss M. This book will make you laugh, cry and sometimes make you p***ed off at some of the people in her life. The Divine Miss M gives us her all weather it is in her singing or her acting. She has had her ups and downs in her life just like everybody else. If you buy this book, you will really love it and I am sure you will want to read it over and over again. It is such a great book. Thanks to Miss Midler for all the great music and movies that she has givin to us and hope there is much more to come. Buy this book, you will love it and make you fall in love with the Divine Miss M again.
