Congratulations, A reflective autobiography with some depth and truth. Before reading Patti's, I read Aretha's, which I ultimately felt like tossing in the middle of the street! Great job! I thought the book was very inviting to the personal side of Patti. I have always admired how forthcoming she has been with the public in relation to her late sisters. This book can truly encourage one to live life, as well as love and appreciate life.
However, there are a few things I would like to clear up, which I found inaccurate or inappropriate. The Jackie Wilson episode I found rather distasteful, particularly since he is not around to defend himself(it was o.k. to slander Al Green). Also, as I had to do with Gladys in her book, I need to clarify a few inaccurate points you raised in your book. In reading your relationship with Atlantic Records in the 1960's, one is left with the impression your group wasn't given a fair shot due to the success of Aretha. Well, that's not totally true, since you were with the label two years before she signed on. It just wasn't your time yet! Now is your time. You sound greater and look more beautiful than ever. You have a wonderful spirit in which people adore you far and near. You are truly a blessing. Wonderful job.

Patty LaBelle is amazing. She has an incredible voice, a career full of ups and downs, and can bring down the house in concert. This book is just another triumph for a lady who deserves all the accolades she receives. With absolute honesty, she reveals so much about her life--from sexual abuse to the fear of dying of cancer like her sisters and good friend--you feel that Ms. LaBelle has given you all that she can. Throughout her life, she has faced a good deal of challenges but has emerged with a positive attitude about life and can still entertain with the best of them. I have seen her in concert 3 times and she blew me away each time. This book does the same. After reading the dismal biography of Aretha Franklin (From the Roots), I realized what a gem this is. If you wanna read a really good book about an incredible entertainer, give this one a go. Its worth every penny!

PATTI takes you on a journey-from the Bluebelles, to LaBelle and through her solo career. She talks about her battles with her self-esteem, record companies, men and THE TRAGIC deaths of sisters. Did you know that NONA had a nervous break down during one the LaBelle concerts-and was taken to the hospital in restraints? WOW! This lead to the break-up of LaBelle! Pick this one up and you'll find out much more.

This book is a tell all exploration through the life of Patti. We all know where she can go with her voice. Now we learn where she has gone has a person. She gives us her insight into the music world as well as her own inside information on the industry. From her feelings about her childhood all the way to her feelings regarding other "supposed" divas. Patti just tells it like it is. But what would you expect from the Queen Bee, Grand Dame, Ms. Thang, Powerhouse, Sista Girl, Wonder voice, Soul Sister herself. If you don't have this book, you need to get out there and get. Don't forget about her cookbook too.

Patti scores with this book. Other than a slow beginning this book is fabulous. I can thank Patti for at least one of my insomnia nights. I stayed up all night to finish this book. I simply couldn't stop reading. Everytime I tried I'd pick it up again. Patti is mutitalented. Buy the book trust me it's the best money you'll spend. The girl can not only sang she can write too.

This Book was GREAT! Once I picked it up I could NOT put it down. And the Fact that I got an Autographed Copy when she did a booksigning at Barnes and Nobel (Sorry Amazon, Y'all don't do book signings) makes the book all the more a TREASURE to me. I've Learned not to Block the Blessings Thank you PATTI.

First of all, i read this book a year ago...but i was telling a friend about and realized that this book helped me see a lot of things. i would give ms labelle a 10 overall because when she talked about her sisters i always felt some kind of connection that im missing with my sisters. i hope this make since. yes ms patti labelle is a entertainer but when i picked up this book i felt like patti and i was having a conversation, i was the listener and she the story teller, that how much i was into the book. it has inspired me to change my outlook on my family and enjoy them while they are here. read her book and i gurantee you that it will change your whole being and outlook on your family values...who comes first and what comes last.
