What a Life July 16 2000
By Bob Waskiewicz - Published on
Format: Paperback
Doris Day didn't have the perfect life everyone thought she had.She was abused by one of her husbands,her son was almost killed by Charles Manson,and her Father married an Africa American Women,that Doris loved.This book is fantastic,and no stone is unturned.I wrote to Doris Day when I bought this book in 1975,and she wrote back a beutifull letter signed in Ink.I still have this note,and Cherish it with all my memories of Doris Days great films and music she has given us over the years.I think Doris did the right thing,retiring while she was still on top,and enjoying her life with her animals,and beutifull house in Carmel.

Doris Day Her Own Story Jan. 24 2000
By Dean E. Davis - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book was written in a way that made you feel as if you were listening to her talk to you in your living room. I was surprised that her life was not as the girl next door, full of sweet and lovely living. Her being able to have such difficulties with the men in her life and still survive with compassion and enthusiasm shows how well grounded she is. What a wonderful person. This book was a great read and touched my heart.

A great read about a great lady - Doris Day April 28 2008
By Dennis J. Faulkner - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a entertaining read, as well as inspirational. Doris Day has to be one of the most
admired women on this planet. She has seemed to never get sucked into the vapid world of "stardom",
and has seemed to keep an eye on what is really important. Her work with the Doris Day Animal League,
and the many animals she has helped - is awesome!
The author does a good job of letting the reader know about Doris Day, and meaningful events
in her life. While I was disappointed in her tv show that she kept changing the stars (she started out a
widowed mom - and somehow the kids disappeared after a few seasons - as well as the charming farm, which
I felt was a terrible move on the show) - you come to realize how much her life was in a turmoil during the
period of the shows creation - her real-life husband had just died, and her financial empire had been
swindled from her - but just like Doris - she takes it head on - and gets justice!

Fabby. The woman is a star Feb. 20 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Can't believe I'm the first person to review this. I *know* I'm not the first person to read it. What can I say - Ms. Day - not all apple pie. Not that she likes it anyway. If you're a doris fan, then this is a great book. It's touching, down to earth (as is the great lady herself) and is inspiring to say the least. After all this woman has had to put up with, she's still the one making our days full of sunshine. Read this and see if you don't admire her. Dare you.

Doris Day Her Own Story Dec 12 1999
By Maryellen O. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read this book many years ago. I was very touched by Doris Day's love for animals. I wrote a letter to her telling her how much I liked the book and how much happiness my own dog added to my life. I enclosed a picture of me laughing while my dog, Ginger, was licking my face. Doris actually wrote to me! She sent a postcard with a typed note on it. One line said: "Kiss Ginger on her nose for me." It was signed: Love, D.D. It was raining the day I got the card. A raindrop made one spot of the card blurry. However, from that point forward we have always referred to Doris Day as: "Ginger's Aunt Doris." Ginger is now gone, but the letter from Doris is a great part of her canine legacy.
