In this frank and witty autobiography, Debbie Reynolds shares her vivid memories of her public and private life: her widely publicized and turbulent marriages to Eddie Fisher and businessman Harry Karl; her experiences with other stars like Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Bette Davis, Shelley Winters, Glenn Ford, Robert Wagner, Fred Astaire; her hard-won and enduring relationship with her son, Todd Fisher, and daughter, actress Carrie Fisher; and the fabulous success of her later career in nightclubs, television, and theater. This recording is a unique documentary - the story of Golden Age of Hollywood from the perspective of a survivor, an act of courage from a woman whose screen performances have touched us all.

The whole book.
The parts were good but jumped all over the place.
None stand out as they noticeably cut from one period to another.
Perhaps the whole book in two parts or just the whole book.
Look forward to the unabridged version,
"You got to love Debbie!"
Her to be second husband gives here a diamond pin in the shape of a swanjust because they are going to the ballet....but, of course, later steals all her money.t.
Debbie is sitting there telling you this story.
Elizabeth did Debbie a favor.
Just a really good read. I read a lot of political non-fiction and needed the change.This book is just good for your soul.
"Told like only Debbie Reynolds could do!"
The story was told by Debbie, herself. It was as if she was sitting here chatting away telling her life's story in a very personal way. Her description of happenings gives the listener the opportunity to use your imagination and can picture it all!! Such a talented lady that had quite a sad life when it came to love.
You will become entangled in these events, which are unbelievable..yet true. It couldn't have happened to a nicer person.
"To much cut out"
This book has so much cut out from its written format I hated it. Read the book not the audible one.
