This review is on the audio version of this memoir, performed by Dolly Parton. This rendition is more like an interview than a reading of the material. It has a lead-in comment by an unnamed interviewer before Dolly comments on the history of the song. It is interesting to learn of the background of the many, many songs she has written. We learn about her spiritual beliefs, a little about her family and her husband, and her working relationships with some of the other country singers she has performed with. She also talks about the Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, which gives away well over one million books each month to kids from birth to school age. It was created and established by Dolly as a tribute to her father, a man who, though quite intelligent, never learned to read because he dropped out of school to work. It’s interesting to listen to Dolly talk about the songs, about the ones that were hits and the ones that weren’t, although she she seems to like them all, and has many favorites. She comes across as a genuinely nice person, down to earth, and not puffed up but a loving soul. The audio version also includes snippets of several songs, which adds to the enjoyment of the book.

This was an amazing book to listen to. Dolly Parton is the narrator though there is an interviewer. I loved hearing Dolly talk about her life and the songs she wrote. She pays homage to her family and roots in her songs. She also talks of her Imagination Library. If you haven’t heard of it, it is a program to get books in the hands of children. In my town, the newborn babies are registered. My grandson received books. It is an awesome charity and hearing why she began it truly touched my heart. My roots are in the area where Dolly comes from. While listening to this I could relate to a lot of what she spoke of. I think readers, Dolly or country music fans or not, will find this book interesting. I recommend the audiobook copy as hearing her speak of her experiences adds so much. ( )

I was actually a bit disappointed by this one. I really enjoy Dolly Parton and was excited to get this one on Libby. I think i was disappointed because many of the fun anecdotes in the book I'd already heard during her press tour for the book. I also didn't necessarily love the interview style of the book. Though you don't hear too much of the interviewer, I think i would have liked a different set-up to the book. Also, reading all these anecdotes and stories together seemed like one long humble brag which ends up being more brag than humble, which is not Dolly. ( )

This was a great audiobook to listen to, narrated by Dolly herself which I really enjoyed. As a music lover of all types of music Dolly is a song writing force to be reckoned with. Her songs spanned so many years, decades even and has been sang not only by herself but so many well known artists even today she still remains relevant particularly in the country music fraternity. The format of the audiobook is one of an interview on her music, the song she wrote, the people she worked with snippets of her music intertwined which makes for great listening. I really enjoyed how she explains her song writing process and how she takes an idea and then builds it out into a poem or song and then the music compilation. She certainly has worked with the whos who in the music industry and I enjoyed the snippets of information that she shared about her experiences working with these folks from Goldie Hawn to Porter Wagoner to Kenny Rogers it all makes for very interesting listening. Take a listen and you will benefit from the wisdom and beauty that is Dolly. ( )

What a delightful oral history by Dolly Parton. She takes you on a journey through her life and music and gives you the stories and inspirations for her songs. I own the book, but I listened to the audio because Dolly narrates and you also hear snippets of the songs she discusses. ( )
