Penny Marshall tells her story in her truly unique, irrepressible style. She brings you in to her inner circle so you feel part of her down-to-earth, hilarious, Hollywood royalty life. Her memoir is a no-nonsense roller coaster ride, much like her person, as we come to know in this book. Who couldn't love this? It is entertainment at its best, just what her mother ordered. Enjoy!
Very good. Penny's performance was excellent and fun to listen to.
Tough to compare. I was amazed with the long lasting (and wide-ranging) friendships she has cultivated and maintained through the years. The title of the book is not really reflective of the content.
She made it sound as if she was talking directly to you (it wasn't "performed" at all).
No extreme reactions - just an overall good feeling that I got from learning more about her as a something more than just Laverne & Shirley
Overall, a fun experience and I am glad I listened to this one. Give it a shot!!
A MUST READ!!
Penny Marshall is fantastic and very funny!! I loved her voice, her story and her sense of humor!!
My favorite part of her book is the intro with the ninjas! Truely gives you a glimpse into her personality and her life in this book. VERY FUNNY!
I listened to this book with my girlfriend who is in her early 50's. She breezed through this one faster than I due to free time etc...but this is a great one to listen to in 1 sitting if you have the time.
Seriously, if you are over 45 years old and remember Laverne and Shirley, if you like SNL, you will LOVE this book!!!!
Just remembering penny's amazing accomplishments...from acting to directing.
I wasn't prepared initially for her New York accent.
I loved this book for the story and because Penny Marshall was the reader. Her accent is priceless. The recollections of her life so far and so funny and sweet as well. I didn't want it to end. I felt like I was listening to my best friend. I had to go out and rent all the Laverne and Shirley episodes, I just had to see them again.
Penny is one of a kind, can't compare her book to anyone else's. She is no B.S. honest and sincere. I love her fearlessness in her business dealings. She is more candid than most of us could ever be.
There was a lot of Penny in Laverne. Many of her stories sounded like things Laverne could have pulled off.
Her airport security story was pretty funny. Some people are so unique they shouldn't need an ID to get through security.
I was impressed with the value she places on frends and family and the joy she finds in life.
As a fellow New Yorker, I could relate to alot of Penny's references as well as her speech.
I loved the story from beginning to end. Sometimes sad. Most of the time very funny. Great job Penny! Thank you for writing this book.
