Few women in the past three decades have lit up the American imagination like Cybill Shepherd. From wholesome Southern beauty queen to saucy cover girl, from heartbreaking movie star to one of television's most beloved comediennes, from devoted mother and champion of women's rights to sultry cabaret singer, she has imbued each of her roles with an indomitable spirit that has made her, at fifty, an icon to an entire generation. Whether stepping on Elvis's blue suede shoes or going toe-to-toe with Bruce Willis, Cybill has never held anything back, and it's all in Cybill Disobedience.

I really didn't like this book. I thought Cybill was a name dropper, who only wrote the book to be vindictive towards people who had previously wronged her. Although it didn't seem like she was particularly wronged, but rather went around with an "I'm hard done by" attitude. She also placed too much emphasis on her looks.
It was written in a very odd style, with really long chapters, but them being split up into sections. It didn't flow, she jumped from story to story.
Didn't like the book at all.
