I have to say that I truly loved this book. I laughed out loud many times. I really enjoyed Cybill's frankness and honesty about her past experiences. I have been a fan of Cybill Shepherd since her Moonlighting days. Even back then, there was always something that I admired about her. I couldn't put my finger on it until I read this book. Cybill reveals many secrets about her life over the years, especially her various sexual encounters. She also writes about her many experiences in movies and TV. I am a young woman and could very much relate to her tales of love, lust and betrayal. Cybill states clearly that she always did what pleased her and what pleased her was sex. Only a woman like Cybill could make a comment like that. She is so candid and such a real person. Some of us feel might feel this way but don't have the guts to say so. It's very hard to take an honest look at yourself and then reveal your soul to everyone. You can see how she has grown and realized the mistakes that she has made along the way but more importantly how she has learned from them. I admire her courage and strength for that. So, Kudos to Cybill for such an honest and humerous look at her very interesting life. I am an even bigger fan now than I was before.

I don't normally read celebrity bios but my wife laughed out loud so often while reading Cybill Disobedience by Cybill Shepherd that I just had to see why. I am not a Cybill Shepherd fan, but I enjoyed getting to know her better in this book, even when she was being clearly self-serving. Her story is made up of equal parts private history and public image. Image (her blond, beauty)and its impact on her private history is the dominant theme of the book. She shows herself constantly trying to overcome the dumb blond image while, frequently at the same time, using her beauty to seduce men she should have left alone - because she can? Needs to? Thinks she needs to?
Cybill is a complex woman in many ways and transparent in others. She was self aware early in her life but late in coming to a sure understanding of her own worth and power. Lots of missteps and bad moves - frequently sexual - in between. Her coauthor, Aimee Lee Ball, should probably be credited with making this story such an easy and entertaining read. There are recurring elements of self deprecating humor and a lot of genuinely surprising anecdotes that allow the reader to feel that they are getting the inside scoop.
And for those who don't really care about Cybill herself but just want the gossip, they won't be disappointed but will probably wish for more detail. The scenes with ELvis (sad and drugged up), Don Johnson (a five minute man), and the unnamed stunt men (the 'Cybill Sandwich') are more titillating than revelatory. Still amusing, however. I would recommend this for anyone who likes enjoys good gossip in a breezy, bright package.

I have been waiting for this book for a long time. Although I am younger than Cybill, I feel she portrays a realistic image of women in the media and in life in general.
This book ABSOLUTELY confirmed this. Cybill's writing is to the point and honest. If you are going to do an autobiography - it should be intertaining and honest.
Cybill pulls no punches and describes her life with humour (most of the time), some wisdom and a lot of honesty.
I was a little surprised at some of the relationships she has had, but she will be the first to tell you "no regrets".
This book is interesting, real and I have absolutely no regrets about buying it. Thank you Cybill for telling it like it really is.

Format: Hardcover
The first I ever heard of Cybill Shepherd (I suspect I'm of the wrong generation) was a clipping from a friend, saying she had been ogling LOTR's Orlando Bloom (young enough to be her son) on live television. I recall being puzzled by her behavior. After reading this book, I think I know why. In all honesty, I felt rather embarrassed to be reading this book.
The book chronicles her life, from a not-so-innocent girlhood in the South to an up-and-down movie career, and ending right around the demise of her self-titled show "Cybill." She happily breaks all the rules set down in her girlhood, and goes through a long list of emotional situations ranging from heartbreak to love to happiness to sadness. It follows her through three kids, a few marriages, oodles of movies, two TV shows, and a seemingly endless string of lovers.
Oh gosh, where to begin? Despite her comments near the beginning that she couldn't "tell it all," there's a pretty honest feel to it all. Cybill seems unafraid to reveal some of her uglier or more humiliating moments, her personal traumas (like the admission of infidelity from her ex), and her professional disappointments, as well as all the people she's ticked off. (Well, if not all of them, then most, I think) At times, however, you wonder what the other side of the story is, and whether the full story is being told.
What bothered me was Cybill's continuous focus on her love life and how many men she slept with, and how, and where, and why. First, I find the details embarrassing, as is her blithe attitude to them. Second, it seems that this -- and not her acting career -- is the focus of the book.
