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!
Fairly early in her life she was exposed to Christian Scientology. It is this reader's opinion that while it gave her some sense of a strong foundation in basic faith beliefs, it may have done her ultimately more harm than good. She later wisened up, again,just my opinion,(no hate mail please),and adopts a more balanced view of religion. It means if you get sick, you go to a doctor for God's sake and your own sake.Doris Day appears to touch on everything you would want her to; her musical career, her many movies and her co-stars in them,her candid, healthy outlook on sex, love, and even exercize and make-up tips for her female reader's appropriate for the 1970's when the book was published. At the beggining of the book, she is asked by the co-author A.E. Hotchner if she will tell all, she doesn't hesitate. You get the feeling she does. I like her. You will to.
