Publisher's Summary

When Linda Gray, iconic star of Dallas, was 20 years old, a magazine editor coldly rejected her as a model, writing that perhaps one day "you might shape into something". At 38 Linda got her big break, as Larry Hagman's wife on Dallas.

To celebrate her 75th birthday, Linda is opening up about her life for the first time. She tells deeply personal stories with wit, humor, and candor and reveals how she's learned to love every day and treat herself with the kindness she bestows on friends and strangers alike. Linda shares her accumulated practical tips about maintaining a healthy lifestyle - how to strengthen and detoxify your body, liberate your mind, and uplift your soul.

Happiness 101

Would you listen to The Road to Happiness Is Always Under Construction again? Why?

oh yes, because Ms Gray Makes soon many good observation. Unfortunately no one talks about how different it is once u get older and how it can at times do a number on your head. Yes this book is written from a woman perspective but the lessons can be for anyone

What did you like best about this story?

the Dallas stories and the friendship between her and JR :) that is a friendship.

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved it when she was driving and had the vision of the baby

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes But I could not so I did it in the car or at work

Any additional comments?

Ms Gray makes soon many great points I hope she writes another book. She has soon much to offer the world.

Loved this book!

Honest, classy, engaging! If you're looking for lots of dirt on lots of celebrities, this is not the book for you. It is a sincere, honest, and direct story of Linda Gray's life. For women over 50, two 100, you will admire her.

LABOURED NARRATION ...

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

By having someone else narrate it.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Nothing wrong with the story - but the narration was plodding and dull.

What didn’t you like about Linda Gray’s performance?

Her performance was wooden - there was no natural ebb and flow to her narration because she was trying so hard to EN-UN-CI-ATE every word, resulting in a very laboured 'listen'. It's a shame, because her story is interesting enough and she comes across as a pleasant and fun person in interviews - but she needs to leave the voice work to someone whose acting skills are broader than hers.

Any additional comments?

I would suggest that this is a book that should be "read", not "listened" to. Her story is interesting, but her narration is not engaging enough to keep one on board.
