This is a delightful book written in a conversational style as the author ponders life and the wisdom she has gained after 76 years; the book is filled with entertaining anecdotes that illustrate her points. It is unflinchingly honest and witty.
There are 50 chapters, many of them short, each a discussion of one idea the author wants to expand upon. My favorites are: "I Am Over Fear Taught In the Name of Religion" (Did you know that Shirley MacLaine discussed religious matters with Mother Theresa?), "I'm Over Feeling I Need My Family Around Me At Thanksgiving And Christmas" (an understandingly very short chapter!), "I'm Over Being Polite To People With Closed Minds", and "I Wonder If I Will Be Over The Drama Of 2012".
The author muses about such diverse subjects as terrorism and airline security and TSA, her experiences of past lives (of course) and her interest in UFO's (again, of course), homeopathy, "smalk" (otherwise known as "small talk", fame and celebrity, the Founding Fathers, 2012, and so much more.
I enjoyed that Shirley MacLaine doesn't bow to social expectations. I was entertained to read how she defines her life and lives as she wants to. I was impressed that she has lived a full and fascinating life by constantly surmounting her fears.
This is a fine and provocative celebrity memoir, and whether or not you agree with the author's beliefs, you will certainly find her book interesting!
Shirley Maclaine is well known for her many and varied views. She backs up all of her beliefs with her experiences in life. Some of her views are extreme to many of the masses, but that does not worry Shirley. She knows she is ten years ahead of the rest of us. Her life has become a culmination of searching for what is real in life and what has been, and how she has grown. The one worry she does have is wondering if it is healthy in becoming a reclusive, happy older woman. She doesn't worry about being seen, fashion, being socially acceptable, and being on the A-list. She does have a sense of curiosity, and she will never get over asking 'Why'? And, she believes that we are all seeking to find what it is that fills our loneliness, 'The Big Truth'. But, to get to the Big Truth we have a lot to get over, and Shirley Maclaine is going to help us understand.
This is such a well written, humorous but serious book. It may be one of her best. The experience and wisdom of her years is well worth reading. She has separated her book into 50 chapters. Some on which she is so over and others on how she will never or does not want to get over. Each chapter is filled with stories of her life. She does give name some names of her past lovers, and why they so excited her. Much of the book is written about her mystical experiences and her past lives. The older I get the more I believe that I have been there, done that, a little more than deja vous. Her dog, Terry, is one of the most important relationships in her life. She tells us she has finally learned unconditional love. One chapter that spoke to me is that of getting over people who have closed minds. It is a no win situation and just builds up frustration. Shirley believes that close mindedness is the loss of remembering who we really are and has a base in fear of the unknown. She is so over conservatives and liberals. Everyone has a belief system and it changes and waxes and wanes as we mature. She is not over having her hair colored, however. Why do I so relate to that? And, she is not over yet. Shirley has much to do. She loves her life, she has a one woman show. She has Spiritual boot camps at her ranch in New Mexico. And, she says our own perfection is yet to be reached, but that is what gives us purpose in life.
The book is all over the place, but it is highly entertaining. Just as you are absorbing the unusual, she says something that is more astounding, but somehow rings true. I was constantly amazed, and this is a page turner. It is also a book that keeps your mind moving and re-thinking your own perceptions. I like to think I have an open mind and want to learn all I can. Shirley Maclaine is way ahead of me and always has been. But she is willing to share. And one power I wish I had is this, "Often I ask my Higher Self which way to go in a traffic jam."
Highly Recommended. prisrob 04-12-11
