あらすじ・解説

Beloved actress and bestselling author Shirley MacLaine contemplates a wealth of subjects from the mundane to the esoteric in this all-new collection of musings that begin with two simple words: What if...

What if hope is the most dangerous emotion?

What if a frog had wings? (Answer: He wouldn’t bump his ass so much.)

What if our political leaders actually led?

What if Downton Abbey was full of Americans?

What if, for some reason, I couldn't be creative and work?

These are just a few of the “what ifs” that Shirley MacLaine considers in her new book written in the style of her beloved and laugh-out-loud memoir I’m Over All That. In What If..., she speculates on a wide range of matters both spiritual and secular, humorous and profound, earthbound and high-flying, personal and universal. This is Shirley MacLaine at her most funny, acerbic, imaginative, and irresistible.

EXCELLENCE!

Shirley MacLaine did a beautiful job introducing an enormous amount of information; covering many and various subjects/topics - and touching on most.
A book well written & read by the eccentric author ; which is almost as impressive, to me, as the contents. I LOVE her no-nonsense interaction with life in general and people in particular. she is an icon who will enhance anyone's life who is (even a little bit ) interested in spiritually evolving ... or just waking from the dream state. I have been intrigued by her since the movie "Some Came Running", because I observed a diamond in the rough becoming polished; which she stripped & sanded over the years to become REAL! And appear to be polished when neccessary.
Shirley MacLaine is, in my opinion, the most versatile, open, honest, secure, talented and aware person I have ever observed.
The only thing I have left on my "bucket list" is to meet her.
This book is only one of her many excellent pieces of art.
If I had to choose one thing to say about this book it would be this:
I was looking for intertainment (a break from listening to and reading hundreds of serious 'self-help' and esoteric books) and what I received is both!

Very relatable!

Fun, interesting, and relatable. I want to say "Me too!" constantly!
She's not "out there". She's "In there".

Gratitude to Ms. MacLaine

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and getting to know her history. Such an intelligent and mindful delight! I feel so much more enlightened and educated, aware thanks to her. It will stay with me a lifetime no doubt. Her courage to be an individual is so admirable for someone like me who is constantly striving to get to my true self and stay there in peace. Thank you so much! Precious gem she is!

“A dancer who thinks”

Shirley MacLaine describes yourself as “a dancer who thinks”. It was quite enjoyable to listen to her reflect and wonder about a myriad of topics both mundane and supernatural. Part of it was practical, part of it was science fiction imaginations, all of it helps us in our personal journey of self study to live better lives.

Fascinating!

I didn't know much about Ms. MacLaine but saw her on Oprahs Super Soul Sunday and became intrigued. Many of her ideas are really far out there but I truly enjoyed the idea of being curious and her methods of asking the question, What if? One thought flowed to the next, weaving in and out. I wish I could sit with her and chat over coffee...

Feast for thought...

Shirley has a talent for asking the questions that we all have at different times of our lives. Deep thinking and provocative questions provide opportunities to see things from several perspectives. Excellent read.
