about

Beloved actress and bestselling author Shirley MacLaine contemplates a wealth of subjects from the mundane to the esoteric in this all-new collection of musings that begin with two simple words: What if…

What if hope is the most dangerous emotion?
What if a frog had wings? (Answer: He wouldn’t bump his ass so much.)
What if our political leaders actually led?
What if Downton Abbey was full of Americans?
What if, for some reason, I couldn't be creative and work?

These are just a few of the “what ifs” that Shirley Maclaine considers in her new book written in the style of her beloved and laugh-out-loud memoir I’m Over All That. In What If…, she speculates on a wide range of matters both spiritual and secular, humorous and profound, earth-bound and high-flying, personal and universal. This is Shirley MacLaine at her most funny, acerbic, imaginative, and irresistible.
Shirley MacLaine, Oscar, Emmy, & Golden Globe-winning actress, has appeared in more than fifty films, been nominated for an Academy Award six times, & received the Oscar for Best Actress in 1984. A longtime outspoken advocate for civil rights & liberties, she is the author of eight international bestsellers--"Don't Fall Off the Mountai...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes! I am halfway through the Kindle edition of this collection of mystical musings, wherein Ms. MacLaine recounts the story of the time she was on safari in Africa. The party spotted a mother black panther and her two cubs up in a tree. This was royal game...off limits, but one member of the safari was going to shoot them. Shirley grabbed her rifle and threatened to kill this hunter if he shot these animals. She saved their lives, but she left the party and waited for the next small plane to fly her out of there. Funny, Shirley related the same narrative in her 2011 book titled I'm Over All That. Except the cats were leopards and not panthers. She needs to keep her stories straight. Of course it is possible she had the misfortune of traveling with amoral human hunters both times. Or was she repeating the first story and couldn't recall if the animals were leopards or panthers? The author's insights in the books I've read are thoughtful and entertaining, however. I highly recommend them.
