Talkalot, Shania says you have to read the book in order, no jumping ahead.

Interesting if shania had a choice she probsbly would have pursued design and architecture. She has a passion for it even to this day.


With the way she wanted to just be the creative person behind the she was sort of like Mutt in that respect. Be in the background, not the star. Her mom wanted her little singer to be the star.

For some of the names she changed you can kind of guess who they are from the Eggar book.

So do you consider it a memoir or an autobiography?

I think it is a combination of the two. She follows a chronological order, she focuses in on various events, and then comments on them from present. It is a lot more interesting than the eggar book, since we get Shania's perspective on things, which makes it more personal than the Eggar book could be. Shania lays out the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I wonder where this is from, or did Shania write it herself....

""Mommy, you're so sweet, your face is like candy"
Mommy replies, "Well son, your face is as beautiful as a flower."
The five year old boy then says without skipping a beat, "and mommy you picked me."


I can not take credit for choosing my incredible son, as Heaven picked him for me. Thank you Heaven!" "- Shania

I really enjoyed the book and have a whole new level of appreciation for Shania. She has got to be tougher than everyone in Nashville!

Perhaps it's just me being very picky, but I found the editing, or lack thereof I should say, very distracting. It's mostly the editor's fault, not Shania's. For example, Mary Bailey was introduced twice within 15 pages with almost identical wording. I said to myself "I know who she is. You just introduced her" lol. Also, Loon Echo's location was described as being twenty miles from the Canadian border, but eighty miles from Montreal and eight miles from Ottawa. Eh? Of course I know it should be eighty and was just a typo, but it interrupted the flow of reading for me because I had to stop and reread the sentence. Even picture captions had improper grammar. I could keep going on and on, but it doesn't matter overall. It's a great book that I've already passed along to others. I just wish someone had tweaked it with more care. Maybe the second printing will have corrections?
