    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who wants to know who hangs out with whom in Hollywood would enjoy this book.


    What was most disappointing about Penny Marshall’s story?

    I purchased this book because I enjoyed her brother's memoir immensely. However, Ms. Marshall spent much time listing off all of the famous people that she knows, especially those who attend her birthday bashes. And the link between the title of the book and her life story was quite weak.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Fewer lists and better life link to the title.


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

    The book had several entertaining parts and I enjoyed learning the backstory of Laverne and Shirley as well as several of the movies that she has directed (e.g. Awakenings filmed in an actual mental hospital).


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend this to friends.
