Who doesn't love Barbara Eden? She's one of the classiest stars in show business and her biography is a breezy, fun read. There's no nastiness here, but Barbara still includes lots of stories from "I Dream of Jeannie" and beyond. Barbara has been inspirational in many ways; her dignity in personal tragedy, her loyalty to her "Jeannie" fans, and her willingness to embrace her pop-icon image. She also shares some candid and deep feelings here and it's all very touching. Her autobiography is sweet and to the point. I couldn't put the book down. We all dreamed of Jeannie, but you'll love Barbara.

Baby boomers with fond memories of the deliciously escapist 1960s sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie" will thoroughly enjoy this charming memoir by its star, Barbara Eden. Looking back on a career spanning more than 50 years, the classy and unassuming star has some great stories to share. As an up-and-coming young actress, she met a number of Hollywood notables, and her recollections about Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Groucho Marx, and Lucille Ball are fascinating. Before earning her own sitcom stardom, she played small roles in various popular shows of the 1950s, and the comparison she draws between Lucy and Ann Sothern, who reacted to the pretty newcomer in quite different ways, makes for interesting reading. Though she's never vindictive or insulting, there's a bit of spice to Eden's stories about life with the "Jeannie" company, notably the volatile and peculiar behavior of co-star Larry Hagman. Fans will also enjoy her reminiscences about other members of the "Jeannie" cast including Hayden Rorke and Emmaline Henry. Naturally, no one's real life could be as sunny and unblemished as a "Jeannie" episode, and Eden writes honestly and movingly about some of her unhappiest times, notably her son's drug addiction and death at a young age. Those who enjoy her work as a performer will welcome the opportunity to know her better through this endearing and entertaining autobiography.

I really like Barbara Edens' writing style. This book is a very entertaining read. One follows Barbara Eden from her days at 20th Century Fox, to her "gig" at Ciro's, and ultimately "I Dream of Jeannie" ( the TV show I grew up with!). The stories/anecdotes of Larry Hagman and I Dream of Jeannie is not to be missed. Anyone who grew up with this show, and/or just loves books on celebrity biographies, should get a copy of this book. Enjoy!

I have met Barbara Eden on 4 occasions, but even before I met her, I knew in my heart that she would be the kind hearted person we saw on Jeannie and I was not disappointed. She is a class act all the way. Even if you never meet her in person, believe me, this book is the next best thing. Barbara never resorts to name calling, nasty comments or vulgarity in any way, yet she is very easily able to vividly paint pictures of all the people and experiences in her life both good and bad. The stories about her Hollywood experiences and rubbing shoulders with the stars is a lot of fun, but I am so grateful that she chose to open her heart and soul to us about her personal life, as well. I only wish the book had been longer. I felt like she probably had so many more stories to tell and those of us who've loved her since we were tiny children would sit mesmerized by her, even if the book was the size of "War and Peace".

In an era when the "casting couch" was probably the easiest way for a woman to rise in the ranks and get noticed, Barbara Eden resisted and did just what her mother always told her and "rose above it". She managed to carve out a fairly steady living in an industry where people go long stints without jobs. She managed to land a show that would render her immortal, and she managed to create a career that is as much based on her acting and singing talent as her eternal beauty. Few women can say that and though Barbara confesses to her fascination with Marilyn Monroe, where as Marilyn was a vulnerable victim of Hollywood, Barbara triumphed over it without succumbing to drugs, alcohol, sexual promiscuity or any of the other usual vices associated with fame and Hollywood.

This is the book many "Jeannie" Barbara Eden fans have dreamed about for years. I grew up wanting to be Jeannie as a child and have followed her career many years. I enjoyed the book so much I could hardly put it down, it's a fun read!! Barbara is a very classy, kind and beautiful lady. She also has a wonderful sense of humor and always has a positive outlook no matter what storm in life she is faced with. She was very candid about all the highs and lows in her life . Barbara shares the heartbreaking tragic death of her young son Matthew from a drug overdose. I really enjoyed all the stories about the famous people she has met . Some were good and some not so good. I thought the story about a kind Marilyn Monroe was completely fascinating. It certainly supports the idea that Marilyn was not a suicide victim. Also Lucille Ball was a great lady and her friendship with Elvis during the filming of "Flaming Star" was interesting! I must say alot of the men in Hollywood sound like wolves! But through it all Barbara stays close to her Christain faith and strong morals , above all she is a surviver. I wish she would have talked about working on the "Andy Griffth Show" with Don Knotts. I especially liked hearing about how she got the part of Jeannie and what is was like to work with Larry Hagman. I never knew she picked all the colors for her Jeannie costume and bottle. This book was a pure delight and inspiring!! Thank you Barbara for being a wonderful role model!
