    " Fun read, esp if you like Penny Marshall! "

    " I like Penny Marshall! I've only known her as an actor and director and the sister of Garry Marshall. So when I saw that she'd written an autobiography, I was already inclined to read it and like it. I didn't expect to come away with a real admiration for this multi-talented woman. From her life in New York as the 3rd (and unexpected) child of a mother who was nuts and a father who was boring - her words, not mine - Penny Marshall lived a life of dance classes in the basement studio her mother presided over. Everything revolved around dance - from her mother's point of view. Penny much preferred boys and smoking! Once she was able to do so, she left home for college in New Mexico and ended up in Hollywood where her much older brother, Garry, was making a name for himself in the TV and movie industry. From there, it was nowhere but up for this rising young actor. Surprisingly, I'd never watched her directorial movies, A League of Their Own or Big...until this past weekend, when ALoTO was on TV....having read the book, I more fully understood the story. Quite amazing! Thanks, Ms. Marshall, for a wonderful book....I will continue to watch your amazing career! "

    " Sex, drugs and name-dropping would be my subtitle for this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 1/19/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. I've always loved Penny Marshall and saw everything she was ever in or directed. Since I grew up not far from the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, I knew all the places she wrote about as a kid. I had to smile when she wrote about Alexander's, I had some great memories of my own about that department store because my grandmother was a saleslady there. I also went to Walton H.S., but I started right after she graduated. Any one who grew up watching Laverne and Shirley will enjoy this book. The stories about her many famous friends and aquaintances are interesting and funny and sometimes sad, but this book is a truly enjoyable read. "

    " some moments were plagued with tangents, but overall was a great read. enjoyed getting a glimpse of her life and her childhood. she seems like a very loyal and true friend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly Wilkerson | 11/2/2013

    " What an interesting life she's had. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becki | 10/19/2013

    " Lots I didn't know about "Laverne" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vince Colucci | 10/16/2013

    " What a fun ride, Penny Marshall brings us from the Bronx, around the world and back again on a Gumpian journey. Wittily written and endearingly approachable Penny tells it like it was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leonora Foley | 10/14/2013

    " I always loved Laverne, and I loved this name-dropping memoir. I had no idea how connected and funny Penny Marshall was, and if I could have a BFF in show biz, it would definitely be her. An amusing and easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 9/11/2013

    " Have been, and still am, a Penny Marshall fan....just not a fan of this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Lundy | 9/10/2013

    " I read this when it first came out and just re-read it. I loved her references, her philosophy of life, and her pragmatism. LONG LIVE PENNY! And thank you for such an honest analysis of a life lived to the fullest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louise | 9/1/2013

    " Better than some, nothing earth shattering or riotously funny. Still, an enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 8/9/2013

    " I am amazed at how many paths crossed in the Bronx that later reconnected through life in Hollywood! A fascinating read about a remarkable woman. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 8/9/2013

    " Very entertaining. A fun and interesting read! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqui | 6/12/2013

    " I thought this was a really interesting read. Penny's story is certainly an interesting one. She is very candid and open, but I can't help but feel like she's not a grown up, which is a bit sad. Still, worth it for the history of comedy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen Womack | 4/26/2013

    " Enjoyed this book so much, I had to jump to Garry Marshall's memoir next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Snyder | 2/23/2012

    " The author keeps your attention with her full life, but like so many biographies by celebrities, it is disjointed and jumpy at times. Still, pretty funny and she is inspirational the way she approaches life and all it's obstacles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 10/27/2011

    " Penny Marshall has had a very interesting life. Makes for a very entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Driver | 10/15/2011

    " So funny and interesting. Even funnier because Penny Marshall read it herself and her accent is great. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hanson | 4/27/2011

    " Disorganized and difficult to wade through. I like Penny Marshall's work in television and films, so I wanted to like this book. It's so poorly written that I couldn't finish it. Sadly, I found it a complete waste of time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronni Zuckerman | 12/30/2010

    " This book was so much fun to read.. Light and not meant to be taken too seriously!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cat | 7/19/2010

    " I actually enjoyed this book. It was like Ms Marshall was sitting right next to you talking about her life. I was/am a huge Laverne and Shirley fan so it was nice to hear about that time in her life as well. I think it would be great to hear the audiobook because it was read by HER. :D "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 4/29/2010

    " Overall the book was ok, interesting in parts, but I agree with other reviewers. I found the constant stream of names repetitive to read, and the overall story slow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 6/18/2009

    " As a fan of Penny Marshall's work both in front of and behind the camera I was curious to read this memoir. I really enjoyed learning about her childhood in the Bronx, her excapades in Hollywood and NY and her relationships, especially with Art Garfunkel (I love him). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bobbi | 1/25/2009

    " I didn't know or remember much about Penny's life except that she is Gary Marshall's sister and that she was married to Rob Reiner - she has had a very interesting and successful life perhaps because her Mother was Nuts! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elsa | 7/27/2008

    " This was laugh-out-loud hilarious. What an interesting person. "
