“I’ve been a questioner all my life.” So begins Academy Award–winning actress Shirley MacLaine as she invites listeners to join her on the most powerful, provocative journey of her life. Sparked by the experience of moving into a new house, she is inspired to look back across the remarkable professional and personal milestones she has experienced so far. Surrounded by the artifacts of a life well-lived, Shirley discovers the invisible threads that stitch together the seemingly random events of her days, adding meaning even to the mundane.

Having grown older, she is increasingly concerned with the potential pitfalls of modern medicine. She shares personal insights into nutrition, homeopathy, and alternative medicine, offering practical and bracing advice for anyone looking to expand his or her understanding of health and well-being. Beyond the physical, Shirley also explores those things that are unseen. What is consciousness? What is the purpose of our lives? Are we alone in the universe? And perhaps the greatest mystery of all, what happens to us after death?

Filled with her trademark wit and candor, this is a fascinating, inspiring memoir that will delight and captivate Shirley’s legions of fans and fellow travelers everywhere.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/11/2014

    " Shirley at her wisest and wittiest. A compellation of her insights from the past 40 years. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jean Johnson | 2/2/2014

    " Liked some parts of it, but some was a little far out, even for Shirley. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula Bates | 1/28/2014

    " Always fun to read her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia Sky | 1/26/2014

    " Yes, Shirley has a very interesting take on human life -- details of which you may or may not believe. But if you suspend your disbelief, her openness to thoughts "way beyond the box" will inspire you. I checked it out from the library, read it, and then decided to buy it so that I can go back to it whenever I need a little kick in the pants to stop thinking so linearly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 1/20/2014

    " I really enjoy her honesty about how she feels regarding her aging process. Her real life experiences and thoughts add a wonderfulness to her story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 1/20/2014

    " Having read all of Shirley's earlier books it was really interesting to read her thoughts as a septagenarian. If you read this, you MUST talk to me about it!!! As usual, wild and thought-provoking!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane | 1/20/2014

    " Fairly typical Shirley MacLaine book. However, I always enjoy reading her. She holds before me the possibilities of the unknown. She broadens my horizons from the intellect to the spirit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/15/2013

    " A wonderful informative book. Shirley is so knowledgable on many subjects and additionally quotes experts and research. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lawanda | 11/28/2013

    " I always enjoy learning other people's point of view...very interesting but a bit far fetched for me in places!! I admire Shirley very much! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lorifog | 11/12/2013

    " Awful! The first few chapters were good if for nothing else than comedic relief...lol. Rambling nonsense...not worth the time it took to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Swirl Girl | 11/12/2013

    " Just wanted to confirm for myself, and, yes...Shirley Maclaine is a little "out there." The only part I found interesting was her chapter on healthy eating. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ocean38 | 11/8/2013

    " She covers way too many subjects - it got a little deep for me at times - boring at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 11/5/2013

    " The author very simply introduces the word coincidence and shows how there is no such thing, but rather, synchronicity. I found a kindred spirit; encouragement; that life is still very much an amazing adventure after age 50. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Antoinette | 9/28/2013

    " Don't waste your time like I did mine. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sylvia | 4/17/2013

    " this was sitting in the biography section of my Five Corners branch of the Jersey City Library. I thought I'd see what she has to say. It was somewhat of a self-indulgent ramble. Not recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 8/5/2012

    " If you believe in UFO and ets as Shirley's does this is an interesting book = there is a lot of names and places where things have happened. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margaretflynn | 11/8/2011

    " Thought provoking. She is very engaging and easy to read. She goes out a bit too far for me into the fourth dimension. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jody | 9/16/2011

    " This was boring. Shirley doesn't give us anything new here. Already knew about these theories either from her earlier books or from other authors. Skimmed the whole thing and was left feeling let down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 7/18/2011

    " This is interesting, then it got alittle wierd. But I did enjoy it and could relate to some of it, not the UFO parts, but the other parts about meditation and finding your spiritual side of your life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cheri | 11/3/2010

    " Didn't like at all - never even made it past page 40ish. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alice | 10/26/2010

    " I love trying to figure this celebrity out by reading her books. In spite of everything I think she'd be an interesting neighbor. At least she's an original. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 6/27/2010

    " Very interesting book ... different perspective for sure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimee | 9/20/2009

    " A little more overwhelming than Shirley's other books but no less life-altering! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Faith2 | 12/25/2008

    " She has lead an interesting life and has some unusual views on things but the UFO stuff is just too wacky. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 12/13/2008

    " The only reason I am giving this book 2 stars and not 1 is because it was a total riot discussing it with my buddies who were reading it with me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Gross | 10/13/2008

    " Funny, informative. Love Shirley's books. "

    " I like Shirley, she speaks her mind regardless of what anyone thinks. She is a little out there in most circles, but I think she is a step ahead. "
