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.

When it comes to providing a sense of the subject, this autobiography actually does a great job. The only problem is that the person presented isn't exactly somebody one would want to spend much time with. Cybill clearly comes across as somebody who is happy to make her living trading on her beauty only to notice and protest that the game is rigged in favor of the young and pretty when her beauty starts to fade . . . who never manages to honor a single vow she makes, but acts betrayed when those around her act the same way . . . who chides Bruce Willis for being an actor who behaves as he is above his material while letting us know in tedious, unremitting detail how much better she is than her material . . . who turns a dispute over whether she should be able to promote her C.D. on her television show into accusations of racism . . .who uses blatant sexuality to sell herself when it suits her but plays the victim when anybody notices the currency in which she trades . . . who isn't able to maintain any personal or professional relationships, but somehow is never at fault . . . who is somehow a hero of the civil rights and gay rights movement because she marched in a rally or two and showed up at the opening of a museum (and who tosses her "status" in the movement around as if it means she can't be racist). Late in the book she inserts some "lessons" learned from therapy, but they don't seem to go very deep and they certainly don't permeate the book.

The book itself has a somewhat muddled style. I think the ghost writer struggled with how to present the material so it wasn't just an account of sexual adventures, professional tantrums, and a couple of lucky breaks in a career of mostly mediocre placeholders.
