Mr. Lowe,

I saw you on Oprah, and since we've grown up together, decided to get your book. I have some news for you.... as good as your acting is, and it is good, you are a writer in your soul. Never have I read a book that was so well written and so well narrated. You also do really good impressions! Please write another book, I have a newly found respect for you; your outlook, your perspective, your talent. I hope I will read you again!

  • The Elephant to Hollywood

Charming, engaging, and surprisingly forthright, Michael Caine gives us his insider's view of Hollywood and the story of his brilliant second act. When he was in his late 50s, Michael Caine believed his Hollywood career had come to an end. The scripts being sent his way were worse and worse. Salvation came in the unlikely form of his old friend Jack Nicholson, who convinced him to give acting one more shot. What followed was one of the most radical comebacks in film history.

This was a really good book from start to finish. I love Michael Caine's sense of humor as he relates events in his life.... he doesn't whitewash the events of his life, he just tells it like it was. His narration is splendid.

When Susan Lucci and All My Children were introduced to the world in 1971, American television changed forever. Susan's character, the beautiful, spirited, and mercurial Erica Kane, was an original. But while millions have enjoyed getting to know Erica's many sides, the woman who plays her has remained a mystery.

Susan Lucci- the woman that never had a bad day

I am truly disappointed in Susan Lucci and this poor excuse of an autobiography. Susan Lucci is the narrator of course- but the narration has a gushy, over-emotive tone that is really annoying. If you believe this book, she has never had a bad experience in her life- why, I bet she doesn't even go to the bathroom like us regular folks. Clearly a whitewash story and more like a fairy tale than an autobiography. Shame on you, Susan. The people that are your fans are going to be sorely disappointed.

  • America by Heart

America by Heart is a highly personal testament to Sarah Palin's deep love of country, her strong roots in faith, and her profound appreciation of family. The book includes brief readings from classic and contemporary works that have moved and inspired her, as well as other Americans, both famous and obscure, whom she admires.

I don't ascribe to Sarah Palin's beliefs, but I always try to balance the equation with information from both sides. I couldn't finish this book. Not because I don't believe in what she says, but because it is more of the same, same, same talking points. Cliche'? Yes. Boring? Yes. Even if you are a Sarah Palin fanatic this is a boring book. I'm sorry I spent my credit on it.
