"Sometimes I think that speculation is more fun than
knowledge. I just turn the answers into more questions
Beloved actress and bestselling author Shirley MacLaine
contemplates a host of intriguing topics from the everyday to the
esoteric in this all-new collection of ideas and observations, each
of which begins with two simple, powerful words: What if?
Taking this as her starting point, Shirley explores a wide range of
matters-spiritual and secular, humorous and profound, earthbound
and inter-galactic, personal and universal. From big questions
about family, friendship, politics, war, and religion, her gaze
lifts even higher. A famous trailblazer in making topics such as
reincarnation and past-life therapy mainstream, Shirley now takes
the lead in opening her mind to crucial questions about the
existence of life on other planets, what that means for those of us
on Earth, and about the true genetic ancestry of humankind. Along
the way, she reflects on joining the talented cast of Downton
Abbey, receiving the prestigious American Film Institute
Lifetime Achievement Award, and introducing a new puppy into her
formerly one-dog home.
From Shirley's "What if" questions emerges a striking portrait of a
constantly curious woman who thrills to new ideas and
discoveries-all while enjoying one of the most extraordinary and
enduring careers in Hollywood. As Shirley says, "I like to think
that I'm open to exploring anything, always questioning, trying to
live free of preconceptions and blind certainties." What if . .
. captures the one and only Shirley MacLaine at her witty,
acerbic, imaginative, and irresistible best.
