    "Outstanding"

    Unexpectedly good book. Wonderfully written and read. I felt like Wynonna has just having a chat with me. Please do not pass this off as a chick book - I am a man but found myself staying awake until 2am listening about female relationships.

    Most folks think that rich and famous folks have got it made and do not have any real problems or conflicts in their lives, but this book proves them wrong. Wynonna has had many struggles in throughout her life that have, until now been hidden from the public. This wonderful book traces Wynonna?s life and its many interesting and challenging relationships. Listeners will find out Wynonna finally makes sense of her life by coming home to herself. You will not be disappointed with this book.

    "Skip the second half"

    I love the Judds, bought Wynonna's first solo CD, and always followed them in the media. I was thrilled to download this book and hear from Wynnona who always seemed to hide behind her Mom's more dominant personality.
    The first half is background on her upbringing, relationship with Mom and sister Ashley and that part was edifying. I feel like I know all three of them much better now and heard cute stories of their rise to fame.
    The second half is mostly long, tedious accounts of how Wynnona got life coaching and learned how to interact with her husband and kids. Many mundane and specific examples that have been more grippingly detailed in many a self-help book. Snooze... boring!

    "Fascinating Story...She Hold Nothing Back"

    I own a few Judd records from their debut days but would never refer to myself as a Wynonna fan. HOWEVER, I was intrigued enough by the "finding myself" theme that I bought it. It turned out to be a joyful, entertaining romp, disarmingly candid and insightful. I "saved" the last 2 hours, because didn't want it to end. Highly recommended.

    "Love her, and loved this book"

    If you're looking for touching and poignant insights into Wynonna Judd's life, and how she came to be the person that she is, you'll really enjoy this book. The narrator does a superb job of capturing the emotion without going over the top, yet keeps you listening, wanting more. Wonderful audio book!

    "I wanted to like it more..."

    Being a Judds fan from way back, I was interested to hear Wynonna's take on growing up with Naomi and in the limelight from such a young age. I loved those parts of the story.

    However, she often drifted off into "self-help book" speak and, while it was interesting and educational, I didn't think it flowed very well with the rest of the book.

    The narrator was all wrong for her "voice", as well. I really wish Wynonna would have read it herself - or at least had a narrator with an authentic Southern accent.

    "Not an Interesting Memoir"

    You may be fooled by the many positive reviews about this book, which I believe are mainly by Winona's hard-core fans. However, if you are not a fan, you should skip this one.

    We live in a time when ghost writers are available for any rich or famous personality to tell their stories and these books are sure to get a good audience. This is unfortunate, because now one doesn't need to know how to write, nor to have a good story to tell before publishing.

    Wynonna's book has basically three parts:

    1) Her crazy, gold digging mother destroys her childhood and adolescence by using her as a child singer in a country music career. Wynonna is basically a prop in her mother's show, what a doll is to a ventriloquist. She grows up without developing any maturity, insecure and codependent.

    2) Wynonna as an adult is wildly successful. Because of her mother issues, she has weight problems, spends millions in an irresponsible lifestyle, and doesn't manage her life, her career nor anything else. She is a 30 year-old teenager. Monster mommy still stays in backstage, pulling her strings and manipulating her.

    3) Wynonna is almost 40 (yawnnnn...) and finds a psychology clinic which helps her to have some very basic ideas about how to control her life. She marries a guy who is sane and helps her to have some (just a little) independence from monster mommy. Now she is free to enjoy her millions of dollars and millions of adoring fans.


    The problem is that Wynonna's life is not inspiring. I like memoirs because we usually find there tales of courage, of exceptional trials or unusual situations. Wynonna's life, however, apart from the singing career which she doesn't detail nor analyze at all, is just boring. How can anyone sympathize with her problems, like not being able to control her spending millions of dollars in useless junk ?

    Wynonna still lives the life of a teenager.

    PS: the narrator is superb, as usual with audible.
