  • Shirley Jones: A Memoir

    For those who only think of Shirley Jones as the prim and proper Marion the librarian or the chaste and demure Mrs. Partridge, a massive surprise is in store. In this hilarious and heartwarming, shocking and intimate memoir, Shirley dishes the raw truth about her own highly charged sexuality, her two husbands - the charismatic and deeply troubled Broadway star Jack Cassidy and the wacky TV comic Marty Ingels - her legendary Hollywood costars, and her interactions with the cast of The Partridge Family, including her rock star stepson David Cassidy.

    Jeffrey says: "A Rare Gem!"

    Would you try another book from Shirley Jones and/or Shirley Jones?

    What an awful book. If you EVER cared for Shirley Jones then just cherish the memory. After this crock of crap you will dispise her as I do. Who the hell wants to hear about the size of Jack and David Cassidys penises and such? I am no prude but this grossed me out


    Would you ever listen to anything by Shirley Jones again?

    Never no how no way. I've had enough of her now for one lifetime as well as Jack Cassidy sex fluids and her other perversions


    How could the performance have been better?

    It was written to shock but it just grossed me out... just like your Grandma telling you about her life as a whore with ALL the blow by blow reports ugh


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None at all


    Any additional comments?

    Every time I hear about Jack Cassidys sperm I wanna barf

    The fate of Brooke Astor, the endearing philanthropist with the storied name, has generated worldwide headlines since her grandson Philip sued his father in 2006, alleging mistreatment of Brooke. And shortly after her death in 2007, Anthony Marshall, Mrs. Astor's only child, was indicted on charges of looting her estate. Rarely has there been a story with such an appealing heroine, conjuring up a world so nearly forgotten.

    In 1960, she was a 17-year-old Brooklyn kid with plenty of talent but no connections and certainly no money; her mother brought her soup to make sure she stayed fed as she took acting classes and scraped out a living. Just four years later, Barbra Streisand was the top-selling female recording artist in America and the star of one of Broadway’s biggest hits. Now the acclaimed Hollywood biographer William Mann chronicles that dizzying ascent, telling the riveting behind-the-scenes story of how Streisand and her team transformed her from an unknown dreamer into a worldwide superstar.

    At the age of 31, Betty Eadie died after routine surgery. The events that followed can only be described as the most profound and extensive near-death experience ever recorded. During the time she was clinically dead, Betty was given knowledge of the afterlife that would make even the greatest skeptic think twice. As she traveled through the spiritual realm, she learned more about the laws and history of the universe than perhaps anyone before her.
