I admire Ms MacLaine very much when it comes to her curiosity, open mind and her courage in expressing sometimes unpopular beliefs, but she has a quality of self absorption that makes her quests sometimes annoyingly narcissistic... and very "Hollywood". Often while reading I stopped to think how she must drive her friends and family a bit crazy... and then she mentioned how she brings her dog to parties where "Terry" proceeds to pick the best dressed woman to jump up on in greeting... now I KNOW she drives them crazy! However, I gave the book 4 stars because although it's all over the place, there are a lot of interesting ideas and it's a quick enough read to be fun.
She covers many topics in the book - her life and famous friends, advice for healthy living, her past life in Atlantis, UFO sightings and information, philosophical and spiritual reflections on the origins of life and historical evidence of visitors from the skies, the so-called star people, dating rom past ages. These star people were called "gods" due to their being greatly more advanced than the earth dwellers, and it turns out that the Old Testament God "Jehovah", may actually not have been a god but a star person. (Jehovah was a jealous, vengeful god, unlike the loving God that dwells within us all referred to by Jesus in the New Testament.)
The first chapters are extremely readable, while the chapter on UFOs, which is packed with information, is somewhat long-winded. There is however no doubt about the veracity of this information. The author is seemingly friends with all the top people in the world, including former presidents and other heads of state, and even the physicist Stephen Hawking. She has thus had access to otherwise "secret" or withheld information.
As indicated in the title, the author seems to get wiser and wiser as she ages. This is not surprising, since she is continuously seeking information and asking questions, as well as pursuing her spiritual development.
Moreover she never hesitates to say what she thinks or believes in, no matter what this is. This is one of her most admirable qualities.Read more ›
