Review

"A  fascinating book...She is an articulate  sophisticated woman of the world." -- The New  York Times

From the Publisher

Immensely gifted with intelligence, curiosity, sensitivity, warmth, and a profound openness to people and places outside her own experience, Shirley MacLaine beings a very special quality of mind and heart to her acting, to her writing, to her travels. You Can Get There From Here is a remarkable memoir--the exciting and revealing journey of a woman who rediscovers the world an herself.

Shirley MacLaine's first taste of professional disaster.

The flowering of her social and political consciousness.

The China trip that will change her life.

From an ill-fated television series in the early 1970's that goes against everything she believes in...to her impassioned efforts on behalf of a major presidential candidate...to her emergence as an important voice in the international women's movement...to her life-affirming odyssey to the People's Republic of China--this is the unforgettable story of Shirley MacLaine's road from a crisis of self-doubt to a joyous new stage in her life.

"A fascinating book...She is an articulate sophisticated woman of the world." -- The New York Times

"Intensely personal...Written in candid, natural style...Spiced with well-told anecdotes and revealing vignettes...All can enjoy the journey's of Shirley MacLaine." -- Best Sellers

Format: Paperback
I first read this book years ago when it first came out and thought it was so great but after years of mental maturing and becoming more conservative in my thinking and knowledge I find her beliefs and her ideas scary. Not worth the one cent I paid for this copy.
