Book by Whoopi Goldberg

Many, many years ago I purchased this book in one of those buy-5-for-hardly-any-money deals... at least, I think that's how it appeared on my shelves.

Autobiographical essays on various subjects make up the content of this book. It isn't a strict autobiography / memoir - but it does offer insights into Whoopi's personal history and ways of thinking.

And, it makes it you think about things yourself. How you became who you are. The things that bug you so much, you can't rationalise it. Words that offend you - or words that offend others, and why. Religion. Politics... It's all here.

As you'd expect from Whoopi Goldberg, it's funny. But, it's also bittersweet. And touching. And it is definitely worth reading.
