"This book is a must-read for those in the acting profession; one of the most intriguing parts of her memoir is finding out how she finds a character and her own method of acting. Turner is a true professional and artist, and although she has made a few questionable choices ("V.I. Warshawski," "A Simple Wish"), overall, she is much to be lauded for the daring and diverse roles that she has played and created (her tackling of the role of Martha in "Virginia Woolf" is revelatory). Yes, her tone is a little much at times (a lot of "Honey...") and her language is quite frank, but I found it very refreshing. She is discrete where she needs to be, and upfront and honest where you would not expect it. You may not agree with some of her opinions or choices, but let's remember this book is about her, and with her sense of survival (she has conquered many demons), she should be allowed to write whatever the heck she wants to. I also enjoyed learning about her sense of volunteerism and positive attitude about making a difference. Turner's maternal feelings and the raising of her daughter are also enlightening to read; besides acting professionals, this book also makes a great read for women who try to juggle a career and family."
