Barbra Streisand is by any account a living legend, a woman who in a career spanning six decades has excelled in every area of entertainment. She is among the handful of EGOT winners (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) and has one of the greatest and most recognizable voices in the history of popular music. She has been nominated for a Grammy 46 times, and with Yentl she became the first woman to write, produce, direct, and star in a major motion picture. In My Name Is Barbra, she tells her own story about her life and extraordinary career, from growing up in Brooklyn to her first star-making appearances in New York nightclubs to her breakout performance in Funny Girl (musical and film) to the long string of successes in every medium in the years that followed. The book is, like Barbra herself, frank, funny, opinionated, and charming. She recounts her early struggles to become an actress, eventually turning to singing to earn a living; the recording of some of her acclaimed albums; the years of effort involved in making Yentl; her direction of The Prince of Tides; her friendships with figures ranging from Marlon Brando to Madeleine Albright; her political advocacy; and the fulfillment she’s found in her marriage to James Brolin.
No entertainer’s memoir has been more anticipated than Barbra Streisand’s, and this engrossing and delightful book will be eagerly welcomed by her millions of fans.

  • What talent, talents

    By Hayward777
    Her life story is truly remarkable and she captures every success and every emotion. It was poignant, sad, funny, and insightful. So, add gifted author as yet another talent.
  • Fair

    By bullpup6
    This was a well written book but much too repetitive regarding the making of her movies and albums. The political views and jabs would’ve been nice to leave out considering we’re bombarded every day through social media and the news from the right and the left….too expensive for this book!
  • 100% Enjoyable

    By Akrimay
    Barbra is in my opinion American royalty. With a career spanning 60 years & every award given, she is indeed a “singularly unique rose”. I read the 1000 page book in 4 days & still felt short. Didn’t want it to end. She is funny, self deprecating, honest & humble. And loves to eat. I cried & laugh & finished the book feeling inspired by this amazing woman. Nothing is impossible as she says. She is right. What a treat to have gone back in time with her from the very beginning to now. Do yourself a favor. Read it. You’ll miss out if you don’t. Thank you Barbra.
