about

To celebrate her 75th birthday, Linda Gray, the iconic star of Dallas and timeless beauty, is sharing her road map to happiness in her revelatory memoir.

When Linda Gray, iconic star of Dallas, was twenty years old, a magazine editor coldly rejected her as a model, writing that, perhaps one day, “you might shape into something.” Since then, Linda has been evolving and growing, and has shaped into a role model for women of every age in her grace, beauty, generosity, and wisdom. She’s been through more pain and tragedy than her longtime fans realize, having suffered paralyzing polio as a child, growing up with an alcoholic mother, landing in a emotionally abusive marriage at twenty-two and living by her husband’s rules for sixteen years before she openly rebelled against him to take an acting class. At thirty-eight, Linda got her big break, as Larry Hagman’s wife on Dallas. With fame came a bitter, public divorce, trouble at home with her two kids, and the loss of her beloved sister to breast cancer. Linda got through it all—the challenges of sexism in Hollywood and the pressures of being a single working mom—with a relentlessly positive attitude that kept her cruising, with a few speed bumps, to the place of serenity she thrives in now.

To celebrate her seventy-fifth birthday, Linda is opening up about her life for the first time. Inside this book, she tells deeply personal stories with wit, humor, and candor, and reveals how she’s learned to love every day as the blessing it is and to treat herself with the kindness she bestows on friends and strangers alike. Along with wisdom, Linda has accumulated a lot of practical tips about maintaining a healthy lifestyle—how to strengthen and detoxify your body, liberate your mind, and uplift your soul—and shares them as well. Her message to “give, love, and shine, baby, shine” will fill anyone with inspiration to live life to the fullest, and never stop pursuing honesty and joy.
Linda Gray is an award-winning actress, an accomplished director, a former United Nations Ambassador, and one of the world’s most recognized and admired stars. Her portrayal of Sue Ellen Ewing, in the original TV series Dallas, brought her international fame and critical acclaim. The role also earned her an Emmy nomination for Best Act...

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inspirational directions for the road to happiness I picked up this book because I was hoping to read an autobiography of a famous actress. Like someone else said in the book I was hoping for funny stories about Larry and Patrick. There are a few stories about Dallas but this is mostly a inspirational-self help book. As an inspirational book it is not bad it was just not what I was expecting to read. She does offer a lot of tips on how what has worked for her. As an autobiography this is a 3 star book, as a self help-inspirational book it is 3 1-2 stars. Read this book if you are looking for ways to improve your life and find happiness, do not read this book if you are looking for dirt on Dallas or other Hollywood Scandals. I received a copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review
