This next book was written as sort of a part biography/part rant. It was written in 1997 by Oscar-winning actress, Whoopi Goldberg. In it Whoopi treads on certain subjects giving HER opinion on the details at hand throughout this funny book.
Making true/accurate statements on certain subjects. Rants true to this day. Fair/square. Giving some detail of her life growing up, Caryn Johnson and her brother, Clyde, and their mother in Chelsea, NY. Growing up, in the 60s, Caryn's mother, a nurse, gave both of her kids every opportunity.
Reciting different truths from her childhood. Certain topics decree/can add truth to what's in this book.
2. Cost - the price of everything
What an auction costs someone
Just different variations
When Caryn was a kid, you did as told. If you want to do something - earn the privilege!
As far as it comes/goes w/ race, DON'T GET HER STARTED, all I am going to say was that Caryn is from NYC. She is as American as Chevrolet. When it comes to sex, she'll give you a different "talk" on what's it all about. Whoopi treads on the health & financial status of this economy. Even then - still TRUE and RELEVANT words TODAY! Receiving welfare for her and Alex, Whoopi also worked multiple jobs. When it comes to parenting, all I can say about that portion of the book is that - Don't you hate it when we hear our parents?
Whoopi gives her opinion on a lot of things, from talk shows to more. Whoopi goes through 7 years of welfare and odd jobs before fame came along.
Here's MY Opinion:
This book shows you that just because life may hit you hard at times, no matter how shitty, you HAVE to be able find the humor!
