I grew up watching "I Dream of Jeannie" and was mesmerized by it. I always wanted to be able to cross my arms and blink just like Jeannie. However, try as I might, I was never successful. Barbara Eden has written a beautiful and honest autobiography. From her work as an actress, to her three marriages, to the death of her beloved son, Matthew, Barbara has spoken openly with honesty and integrity. She talks about the "hungry years" when she was struggling as a chorus girl; the famous and not so famous actors she worked with; and her relationship with Larry Hagman. Barbara reflects on the challenges she faced in both her personal life and working life and about the great joys she experienced. There are also sixteen pages of photographs that every fan of Barbara's will love to see! I enjoyed this book so much that I read it in one sitting.
