Publisher's Summary

Beloved actress and bestselling author Shirley MacLaine contemplates a wealth of subjects from the mundane to the esoteric in this all-new collection of musings that begin with two simple words: What if...

What if hope is the most dangerous emotion?

What if a frog had wings? (Answer: He wouldn’t bump his ass so much.)

What if our political leaders actually led?

What if Downton Abbey was full of Americans?

What if, for some reason, I couldn't be creative and work?

These are just a few of the “what ifs” that Shirley MacLaine considers in her new book written in the style of her beloved and laugh-out-loud memoir I’m Over All That. In What If..., she speculates on a wide range of matters both spiritual and secular, humorous and profound, earthbound and high-flying, personal and universal. This is Shirley MacLaine at her most funny, acerbic, imaginative, and irresistible.

    "What If..: I really enjoy this Book?"
    What did you love best about What If...?

    Shirley is an excellent actress and it comes through in her audible books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Shirley tells her own life story in a fascinating and intriguing way.


    Have you listened to any of Shirley MacLaine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to three of Shirley's earlier works and this one was my favorite.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoy Shirley's candid insight into the behind the scenes look at the Hollywood elite.

    "Better speculative books out there!"

    These inquiries work better in live discussion than in written form. Nothing revelationary here and the brief, diarist discourses the author raised were raised by better authors found in new age classics (Sitchin, "Slave Species of God," Tolle, "What the Bleep," among others). And do I hear Shirley's voice sounding more cynical and irritating than ever?. I didn't like this audiobook.
