Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: My Passion for Design (Hardcover)
Having been a fan of Barbra Streisand, throughout her impressive career, from her unique and beautiful voice to the equally unique and funny movies that she's acted in, I couldn't wait to receive this gorgeous book.
This book is huge and beautifully done with quality and deserves a treasured spot in our homes. The price is certainly justified with the highest of quality page after page of exquisite color pictures throughout. I love how she created this book from the vantage point of sharing her passion for the search of beauty as opposed to writing an autobiography making it all about her. If you get bogged down with details, not to worry, she also adds her personal life subtly as in "Jim and I were vacationing....when I found the perfect porch, or waterwheel or soffet....I made him stop so I could take a picture to show the architect."....She worked in just enough of her personal history along the way that made it all that much more interesting. Coming from a poor background, her impressive career was achieved because of her grit, her hard work, her talent. She, the woman, the human being, deserves much acclaim and admiration.
