I have read every "biography" of Barbra Streisand in print - and it seems most of those are included in the exhaustive notes quoted in this book. William J. Mann's work is enlightening and meticulous; the research alone is incredible. Unless Barbra herself decides to set "pen to paper" this may be the definitive diary of those early years. Thank you, Mr. Mann, for an incredible and delightful book.

Have been a Streisand fan since the beginning. I was disappointed that the book stopped where it did and would have enjoyed continuing with her life story as well as this author wrote the early years. But it was detailed and specific and certainly an interesting piece to read.

I was left confused as why this author stopped this otherwise well written book just as Streisand broke out in Funny Girl. I was sometimes turned off by unnamed quotes...especially if they were negative. Ms. Streisand worked hard for what she has achieved. It always seems like sour grapes when someone puts her down. To the author's credit he mainly put down the facts of her achievements...which are many. I found that the book portrayed her as a human being with high goals. She, and this book, give us examples of how this was achieved. I enjoyed the book but still wonder why it was based on just a few years.

The author obviously hates Barbra. He wrote everything from a very negative standpoint. I can't believe she is as self-absorbed as he made her out to be. His information came from previously written books and commentators. Why write a book about someone you can't stand.

I haven't finished reading the entire book but if you are a Barbra fan you will enjoy reading this account of her early years. Well written and easy to read.

Much information about Barbra, but too many specific details about her relationships were repetitive, non essential facts, and seemed to be an effort to make the book longer. The info about her early life was well done, but after that it was just a will she be Fanny Brice in Funny Girl or not, and we already know that without reading this book. I really would not recommend this book unless you love minutae and are crazy about Barbara

What drives anyone to entertain/perform is very much the same untill you get into the family tradition where it is a business/craft handed down in various forms. That is what i find interesting
