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.

1. Space

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?

At the age of 14, Alex tells her mother that she's pregnant, WANTING to keep this baby. With another child, making that 2 children, Alex is married. The point was just about that - choice! When it comes to words - certain words - that's all that they are and they can't hurt/harm you unless you give them the power.

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.

I think you know the story from there . . . .

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!
