Goldie Hawn's life is an ongoing tableau of stories, and she has the knack of one born to tell them. In this candid and insightful book, she invites us to join her in a look back at the people, places and events that have touched her.

With her trademark effervescent humour and generosity, Goldie shares the lessons she's learned and the wisdom she feels she's been given in the hope of giving something back. Far from just a Hollywood 'tell-all," this is a very personal look at moments both private and powerful: the delight in her father's spirited spontaneity; the confidence instilled by her mother; the unexpected gifts of comfort from strangers many miles from home; and the joy of being a daughter, a sister, a parent, and a lover.

Goldie writes about her younger self - a little girl who felt like an ugly duckling - and her growing up in suburbia with dreams of becoming a ballerina. She takes us on a tour through her go-go dancing years in New York of the 60s, her phenomenal success on TV's 'Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In',and then to the world of Hollywood stardom and extraordinary experiences in films like the Oscar-winning 'Cactus Flower', 'Swing Shift' and 'Private Benjamin.'

She also talks about her relationship with her extraordinary family - partner Kurt Russell, her children Kate Hudson, Oliver Hudson and Wyatt Russell, and her stepson Boston - her growing faith, her curiosity for that which she doesn't yet know, and her unquenchable thirst for knowledge and understanding. Most of all, this is a trip back through a life well lived by a woman well loved.
