    This is Barbra Streisand’s first book, and, like Keith Richards’s recent memoir, it is about excess, the pursuit of excellence, and how, when you come from no place at all and claim the world Author: Hilton Als. Barbara Sher presents a unique perspective on self-improvement. She is a career counselor and bestselling author, who is dedicated to showing you how to do what you love. Learn about her Success Teams and get ideas, information, contacts and a cheering section that won't quit. Her Success Team “is everything your family should have been and probably wasn't.’.

    Barbara Joan "Barbra" Streisand (/ ˈ s t r aɪ s æ n d /; born Ap ) is an American singer, actress, and a career spanning six decades, she has achieved success in multiple fields of entertainment and has been recognized with two Academy Awards, ten Grammy Awards including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the Grammy Legend Award, five Born: Barbara Joan Streisand, Ap .   As we wait for Streisand's memoir to be completed, I thought it would be fun (and interesting) to see what some great titles would be for the book if we were asked to give suggestions. Who knows? Maybe that's what's actually holding up the publication - she can't decide on a title!

      From Funny Girl to The Way We Were, Barbra Streisand’s body of work is as iconic as the artist a new limited-edition photography book, Barbra: Streisand’s Early Years in Hollywood Author: Lenora Jane Estes.   Barbra Streisand and James Brolin make up one of the entertainment industry's longest-lasting power couples. They seem to share a perfect relationship, but that doesn't mean that certain quirks in Author: Dianne Gebauer.

Smartly written and incredibly witty, What Would Barbra Do. is part memoir, part musical history tour, and, at its heart, the touching story of a daughter, a mother, and how musicals kept them together. It will have you laughing and singing/5(6).

The author pretty much only devoted one chapter to Barbra Streisand, and the rest of the book to somewhat snarky comments about many other musicals. For a book that is I recently read a book with a similar title - What Would Grace Do.

KIRKUS REVIEW. A memoir about musicals that doesn’t come up roses. Recalling a spat with a friend over the musical Cats, Brockes admits, “I don’t know quite what point I’m trying to make here.” Agreed.
