I have loved Goldie since the "Laugh-in Show" where she made her uncontrollable laughter and "ditsy blonde" ways into a memorable "go-go dancer" character. In this memoir, she traces her early years with her family and friends to her current family with Kurt Russell. She reveals her search for strength and enlightenment in the face of pressures and life's sorrows. Her positive nature comes through, as does her love of children, friends and life in general. This is a good, inspiring read with lots of great pictures.

Any woman who has been a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife... should read this book. Goldie Hawn reaches into her soul and reveals her struggle to be accepted by her peers in school, her deep love and affection for her parents and sister, and her luck (and her angel that helped her) in surviving a near fatal accident. She shows a depth of feeling and character I never saw in some of her film characters. She's wonderful to watch on screen, but so much more than that. She seems to have found just the right balance in her life. She adores her children, and reveals the love and respect she has for her life partner, Kurt Russell. A wonderful read. Don't miss this one! And pass it on when you're done!

This is not a biography. Goldie Hawn explores the essential moments of her life. A very spiritual person, Ms. Hawn describes childhood events, friendships, travels and family life events that she treasures. She has an extremely positive outlook on life.
I enjoyed the book but must admit I was ready for the book to end. Very well written, easy to read.

A pretty touchy-feely, but not badly-written, memoir by Goldie, who does seem like a pretty great person! Photos in the book, too, which are always fun.

I loved this book by one of my favorite actresses. It was so wonderful to read about her life and how she became an actress. It was very interesting and kept my interest all the way through. I laughed and cried with her. I can see why she was a favorite of mine.

Really great book. It took me a little while to get through, but I was satisfied with it. The only thing I did not enjoy was that she constantly talked about her trips to India when I really wanted to know about her life around the movies she was in. She would talk about some movies, but not even the best ones that she was in. I still suggest giving it a read, you might enjoy it especially if you are a fan of her like me.

It's amazing to read about what a spiritual life that Goldie Hawn has led. The trials and tribulations she experienced was a far different path than any biography that I have read.

This was not the typical movie star biography. It was more like "these are things that happened to me and this is what I learned from them". It was very interesting and insightful.

I always knew there was something special about Goldie Hawn and this book confirmed it. She is one of those rare individuals that never looses their optimism and joy of life. I enjoyed reading about her various experiences and how they shaped her into the woman she is today. She had amazing parents who nutured her well and gave her that effervescent bubbliness that is her trademark. The lessons shared in the book are priceless and timeless. This is a good book to share between mothers and daughters especially.

I loved Goldie Hawn before and after reading/listening to this book I love her more. She has a wonderful voice to tell her story. Her life experiences and what she has learned are welcome lessons from which we can draw insight to our own worlds, selves, family and friends. Thanks Goldie Hawn. You are wonderful. :)
