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.

Well, I did finish this book. Will delete it immediately as if washing my hands after completing a nasty task. The writing is fine. Having said that I must also say that, by the end of the book, I couldn't muster even an inkling of caring, empathy or sympathy for someone who has, by her own admission, lived a selfish and self-gratifying life while clearly not caring for anyone else's pain along the way. I have no superior moral scruples about her sex life, though, in her attempt to be tittalating her hundreds of genital encounters becomes tiring. I would venture to say there are thousands of prostitutes who had more meaningful sexual encounters; hers seem to mechanistic and sad.

Despite her many assertions that she has "learned valuable life lessons", it would seem she has not. In her professional dealings she recounts how everyone screwed her both literally and figuratively. Everyone one her professional associates seems to have been at fault at some point in the relationship. Okay, the kindle version was free but I felt both sad and soiled for having given a few precious hours of my life in reading it.

Format: Hardcover
I was a rabid fan of Moonlighting and I must confess that is one of the main resaons for the purchase of Cybill Disobedience. What I found in those pages was much more. I expected brutal honesty( at least the way she saw things) from Ms. Shepard. She did not disappoint. She takes us from a detailed description of her Memphis underpinnings to the present not bothering to leave out the laundry list of men who shaped her life. Ms. Shepard's sex life is actually a character in the story anyone who has read the book will quickly realize this. The underlying theme of Cybill Dis. is the poor-me I'm beautiful yet undervalued for all my other traits scenario. Sometimes I actually feel sorry for her especially in the early portion of her life (the 60's-70's) when being looks'obsessed was expected of women but vanity was frowned upon. If anything this story can be looked at as one woman's evolution in her first 50 years. From tomboy to teen model to sexually viable young lady to TV "ice queen" to self assured woman, Cybill has played them all.
