Now in her 60s, Jane Fonda looks back over a life in which she won Oscars for her roles in Klute and Coming Home and produced blockbuster hits Nine to Five and On Golden Pond. And with unflinching honesty she addresses the tragedy of her mother's suicide; her turbulent relationship with her father, Henry Fonda, her lovers and husbands, her passions and political views.

"Remarkably frank autobiography." (Sunday Telegraph)
Ardent Australian lifestyle entrepreneur, solid friend, prolific Airbnb guest, life-long animal lover, proud Mum of two impressive young men
I'd recommend this book to women in life transition, particularly those of us who, like me, have come through a storm & taken the time (4yr in my case) to heel, nurture & ground herself. I bought Jane's 'My Life So Far' & 'Prime Time' after viewing her impressive TEDX talk about 'The Third Act'. If, like me, you enjoy biographies &, in the case of this book, value the life perspective of an older, wise (yet vulnerable & uncertain in herself) & ever attentive woman, then I suggest that you will enjoy & reflect meaningfully with this book.
what a woman! Jane Fonda's life story had much to teach and her voice is engaging to listen to
"An amazing lady and story"
I loved this book, not only did it change the way I think about her but a number of topics she touches on in the book , she read it well and you just hear the talent in her voice. I think that the way she tells the story is heartfelt and honest and she really did this for her benefit as much as for ours to hear it. An amazing story from an amazing legend of screen and life!
