“Life’s too short. I’m not.” You might know her as a Tony Award–winning Broadway star, who originated the role of Galinda the Good Witch in the smash musical Wicked and won a Tony for 1999’s You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Or you may recognize her from her starring roles on TV—The West Wing, Pushing Daisies, Sesame Street...oh, and her huge hit sitcom Kristin on NBC. Or her appearance on Pat Robertson’s The 700 Club. The 700 Club? Kristin is a wonderful collection of contradictions—but everyone who’s ever met her remembers her as the little girl with the big voice. At four-foot-eleven, Kristin Chenoweth is an immense talent in a petite but powerful package. In this lively, laugh-out-loud audio book, Kristin shares her journey from Oklahoma beauty queen to Broadway leading lady, reflecting on how faith and family have kept her grounded in the dysfunctional rodeo of showbiz. The daughter of an engineer and nurse, Kristin was singing in front of thousands at Baptist conventions by age twelve and winning beauty pageants by age twenty-two. (Well, actually she was second runner-up almost every freaking time. But, hey, she's not bitter.) On her way to a career as a professional opera singer, she stopped in New York to visit a friend and went on a whim to an audition. Through a combination of talent, hard work, and (she’s quick to add) the grace of God, Kristin took Broadway by storm. But of course, into every storm, the occasional drizzle of disaster must fall.

    " I pure delight. Love her even more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/9/2014

    " I rarely go for this type of book, but I was forced to visit the library on the cruise ship when I finished what I had brought with me. I think Kristen Chenowith is incredibly talented and so cute, so I thought I would skim her book. I ended up reading the whole thing, and liked it just fine. She's spunky and fairly down-to-earth, and it was fun to read about how her career got started. A pleasant, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/5/2014

    " I've always liked Kristin Chenoweth and after listening to her book, I like her even more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Yarbrough | 2/4/2014

    " Great read if you like anything in acting, Broadway and a good sense of humor. It's interesting how she has bent her theology to fit her lifestyle but she loves Jesus and stands for him. But, he has grown as an actress and person. I enjoyed listening to it and want Amanda to listen to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 1/29/2014

    " This was absolutely adorable! I listened to it rather than read it in book form, and boy am I glad I did! Kristen herself narrates it, and the whole thing feels a little like a conversation with a friend. And then there's the sometimes singing--which is also made of win. Now that it's over, my car feels a lot more lonely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 1/23/2014

    " I love Kristin Chenoweth! The narrative of the book is exactly how you'd expect to hear her talking. It is witty, funny, sweet, and makes you want to be her friend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 12/15/2013

    " It was a cute story. Lots of funny little sayings. My opinion, a tad to early in her career for a memoir. "

    " I'm sorry, Kristin! As much as I adore the hell out of you, I just couldn't get through this book. She skips here and there and everywhere, I found it hard to be grasped. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meg | 10/7/2013

    " I felt myself wanting to just finish this book. Though it was funny and witty, I just got bored. "

    " I loved this! She was my favorite character on what would have been my Sunday night guilty pleasure (GCB) if ABC wouldn't have cancelled it.... I recommend this to anyone who is familiar with her work... and for those of you who haven't, she's definitely worth youtubing at the minimum. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 10/8/2011

    " Hilarious, great read by an amazing woman! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tania | 5/12/2011

    " A fluffy little memoir with some neat anecdotes about the world of Broadway and television. I would have preferred much more detail, especially about the developing of a Broadway musical, but perhaps the book contains enough detail for the average reader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 5/7/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 4/12/2011

    " Very interesting if your a Kristin Chenoweth fan. I enjoyed the behind the scenes bits about her Broadway and TV shows. I found her relationship with Aaron Sorkin interesting as well. She makes no bones about the fact that she had a ghost writer. I'm glad she read the audiobook herself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 4/12/2011

    " Great read if you like anything in acting, Broadway and a good sense of humor. It's interesting how she has bent her theology to fit her lifestyle but she loves Jesus and stands for him. But, he has grown as an actress and person. I enjoyed listening to it and want Amanda to listen to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 4/5/2011

    " I love Kristin Chenoweth and the fact that her personality and voice comes through loud and clear. My only issue with the book was keeping track of the timeline, which made me give it 4 stars instead of 5. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas | 4/5/2011

    " Loved this book, as read by Kristin Chenoweth.

    Have gained much respect for her after reading this.

    Would highly recommend this book, especially if you're a music theater/arts lover anywhere between the coasts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 3/30/2011

    " You can hear Kristin in the writing. So many things I didn't know about her career, Broadway and how her relationship with Aaron Sorkin has played out in both of their careers. Can't wait to read her memoirs in another 40 years. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 3/22/2011

    " Do not read if you have a problem with in-your-face Christianity.
