Nothing new here, but always worth a quick review. Perhaps, any mistakes you've made will get your attention and allow you to make some adjustments.
One of the most interesting and comprehensive memoirs that I've come across in my many readings.
Quite a behind-the-scenes look at the Rhoda era and the many successes beyond her initial hit show.
Wonderful, warm and genuine performance.
My Friend, Rhoda
The latest medical news surrounding Valarie Harper broke just as I was finishing this audiobook. As I listened, enjoying every moment, I was amazed by the depth of her career and her love and affection for many friends and family. Her show "Rhoda" was a TV sensation, but she has done so much more since then, including a life filled with passion and care for those less fortunate. The depth of her sharing goes way beyond most bios. Her anecdotes made me laugh and her honesty and emotional stories renewed my love for the woman we knew as Rhoda. Bless you Valarie!
I'm certain that Howard's wisdom was passed along to many of his students. However, this biographical story lacks any real depth or significant ideas. I just kept waiting, expecting a gem or two of real wisdom. Just not there. Very disappointed in the purchase.
Less affectation with his voice.
It just passed some time while I was on the road, but I was very disappointed that it lacked any depth or interesting concepts and ideas.
As for Howard's Wisdom, I guess you had to be there in person to see the magnificence.
They really threw me a curve with this one. Not at all what I expected. It was more of a book about the brain. I thought I was listening to a required lecture in Medical School. While there were a few interesting facts, overall it was boring and tedious.
Much too medical and biological in nature.
Saved the listen.
Character? There was a character?
Take a cue from author Malcolm Gladwell. This type of subject could have been presented in a much more powerful and entertaining manner.
One of my top ten listens.
Carol tells it all, from the intense joys to the lowest lows. She is authentic, funny and a great storyteller.
You could hear honest emotions in her voice. It's rare when you hear a celebrity's voice quiver as they tell a biographical story.
I laughed out loud often and was touched emotionally during her stories of pain and loss.
Carol Burnett has given us the gift of returning to that era of television magic when a show and its star actually became part of our family. For me, it became a reunion with great TV memories.
