She is very forthright with the details of her life and it was a good way to see that money does not always bring instant happiness. It is a short book, read it quickly.

This was a quick read that I finished in a few hours. The only reason I found out about Gloria Vanderbilt was because of her son, Anderson. (I'm young...and I missed the glory days of her jeans!) I liked the pace of the book very much, but the only thing I wish she would have done differently is to have made it more linear--it feels as though the memoir jumped around and while it was easy to fall back into place at times, it made it a little confusing for me. I also wish she would have focused on Wyatt Cooper, seeing as though she still feels he's the true "love of her life."

Overall, it was an insightful read about a woman who's still in high cotton, and I have a new appreciation for her because although she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, she obviously worked hard to make a name for herself and prove her worth.
