Connecting the story from so many years ago to now. I could almost feel myself standing in the places she talks about.
None that I have read thus far.
For the most part, pleasant to listen to. At the risk of being nit picky - I must say, two things bothered me. I didn't care for the parts where she sings, and her mispronunciation of some of the Hawaiian words. She put the accent on the wrong syllable of some of the Hawaiian words. (for instance PALama should be PaLAma).
Amazingly Strong Women
Enjoyable and enlightening story, with some parts that very much angered me learning what the Korean woman had to deal with.
It was fine to entertain as I did housecleaning
Being it was short, it was as if I were sitting chatting with friend about his experience.
Nothing. I'm not a "Change the story" kind of person. If I wanted to do that, I'd write my own story. :)
Nothing. It was fine. The only reason it has a 3 rating is because it was just a fun little chat with not a bunch of substance. Not a bad thing, it's just that I knew what I was getting when I bought it.
Anything else he was willing to tell. Again, it was his story to tell, not mine to change.
If you want to have a fun chat with a guy friend and you don't have one handy, this book will suffice as a good fill in.
Artie's honesty intertwined with his signature humor
His Mom, sister, and Adrienne. Amazing women.
When he and the young guy were pulled over by cops and left to spend the night in the car. The way Artie tells that scene, I could almost see it as if I were there. Hysterical.
Yes, it was hard to put down because I could hardly wait to hear what happened next. I was rooting for him at every chapter.
These celebrity "train wreck to sobriety" stories never cease to amaze me. The depths of what people do for drugs is beyond my comprehension. I have two glasses of wine and I worry about dumb things I may have done. I cannot imagine what they live through, by their own admission, by their own choices. It's always great to learn they've beat the demons.
I loved being able to hear some of his stand up act along with his life story
The appreciation Billy has for his family, friends and career. No whining, no sob story, just great entertainment.
So many to choose from but one is when he played with the Yankees.
And he just keeps getting better.
I think I've fallen in love with Billy Crystal as a man, not just an entertainer. His love for his wife is so real and so obvious through this book. And the voices he does - pure entertainment.
One of the best and quickest "reads" so far
His crazy mom and his whole childhood
His voices, a great Michael Jackson impersonation and he really brings to life all the characters in his life.
Meet the REAL Corey Feldman
I don't care how much his mom denies his story, I believe every word of it because he tells his story with such (seemingly) honest conviction with no "woes me".
I have a whole new respect for Corey Feldman and I hope he has opened the door for more child stars to come forward and tell their stories. It's time to out these awful stage parents and the other animals in the industry who need to be exposed.
That Belinda was a wonderful young woman and remembered as such by every person involved in this tragic story, even her murderer's family and friends.
Quinton's wife's commitment to her friend Belinda, even though they had a little estrangement prior to the murder.
It was fine. Although I realize it is part of storytelling, I don't care for women trying to sound like a man.
It disgusted me at some points simply for the way sport stars in high school, college, and even pros think they are above the law. Also, I am troubled by the fact of who is now raising Ethan. I was really surprised at that.
While a tragic story, it is a good book.
It's not the book that I couldn't take - it was the narration
Something similar, just not with this narrator
Her voice was not my taste and her cadence was very distracting for me. I couldn't even hear the story, all I could hear was her talking.
Disappointing. I've heard/read similar books about the inside scoop on hotels and restaurants. I really looked forward to enjoying this as much. Unfortunately, I've tried every month or so to listen PAST her voice...I just can't. I give up!
Hearing Tony talk with that trademark accent. You can just picture him sitting across from you sharing his experience.
None, this was unique because Tony's experience was unique.
Tony himself. I love the honesty he tells the story with. And I love how he refused to semi-script his reality show, even at the risks that were presented as a result.
I laugh at his story telling, I cried with him many times. His soft heart is so admirable!
Anyone who has been in the teaching profession or even knows someone in the teaching profession will love this book. It is so relatable. Plus, who DOESN'T love Tony Danza?!
Possibly parts of it because it was interesting.
I was really surprised at the end. I guess I'm out of the loop of the music industry!
I don't know about FAVORITE, but I enjoyed learning an insiders's perspective of many of the "characters".
Hearing about his firing and how the family got through it.
Good book, especially if you are interested in the music world.
Same place as most celebrity memoirs. Fun to listen to.
Debbie seems like such a spunky woman with a great sense of humor. I also love Todd for having been there for her through everything.
This was the first one.
What happened behind the scenes of one of the longest running "America's Sweethearts".
Ya gotta love Debbie Reynolds. A trooper, a survivor, an eternal optimist. And cute as a button even at 80 years old!
It was factual and very respectful of a man which most anyone from the 60s loved and admired.
None that I've read till now.
Audible books read by someone with an accent normally distracts me from the story. However, being this was about one of the most famous English people I'm familiar with, her accent kept me in the moment the entire book.
Every John Lennon lover's must see.
It is quite obvious to me how much Cynthia loved John before he became "The Beatles' John Lennon" and beyond.
Julian's forward was very touching.
No surprise about Yoko.
The whole book felt to me like it was written with love.
