Inside Out Periodically I find and listen to celebrity memoirs I like the audiobooks because generally the author narrates it and the book feels gossipy, funny, heartfelt The books are also slightly

the author narrates it and the book feels gossipy, funny, heartfelt The books are also slightly voyeuristic, and if the author shares little moments, vignettes, which allow the reader to feel they are friends sitting together over coffee sharing life experiences.Rob Lowe, for instance, has two books which made me smile throughout I felt like I remembered the stories I felt like they were something we shared And Portia de Rossi shared a tough, smart story of her eating disorder which allowed me to develop a compassion for her that wasn t previously there So I was hoping that this book would be similar, but I was a bit disappointed.The pros Moore s memoir deals with childhood trauma and it s aftermath very well She is open and truthful She exposes the issues of her birth family which were mostly caused by alcoholism and abuse She shares the way these issues made her feel worthless and how hard it was during her life to escape the fear that came from her background In this way it wassimilar to de Rossi s book.The cons When the book gets to the part of her life the 1980s when she was most famous I felt it failed It didn t feel gossipy in a light hearted and fun way, but rather it felt gossipy and mean spirited or selfish There were a couple moments in particular that I hated One of those is this ahe brought up a sexual relationship with Jon Cryer which was quite selfish in nature She stated that she took his virginity which he says isn t true, but that doesn t matter To me, this is an invasion of his privacy It isn t her story to tell True or not, he gets to tell the story of his own sex life The story even came off as a bit mean girlish, as though she was the hot girl and he wasn t the hot guy, so of course he was a virgin and he was lucky to have her It just didn t feel positive.And then there was her discussion of Ashton Kutcher I realize that the end of their marriage was one of thedifficult periods of her life and that there may be some resentment And honestly her discussion of infidelity didn t bother me at all But there was a scene where she blamed him for the fact that she chose to drink alcohol again after being clean and sober This really bothered me It is not responsible to put that burden on any other human being I understand that we can trigger one another and that is especially true in close relationships However, it is important that we take ownership of our own failings, weaknesses, addictionsThe book closes in a positive way, where she discusses her personal growth and shares the closeness she has with her daughters But it came too quickly She failed to show the steps that she took to repair her life They were touched on, glossed over it makes it look like it came easily And if your book is about how hard childhood trauma is but that it is recoverable, then I believe the most important aspect of the book is to show how it happened for you That element should have the most pages dedicated to it This was such an anticipation read for me as I was in my teens when Demi Moore was the biggest star in Hollywood I loved Demo Moore This somehow made me like her less which is was as I wanted to like herI watched an interview with her on Ellen and ordered the book immediately Don t get me wrong her childhood was a mess She suffered emotional neglect, abuse and a traumatic sexual assault However her later experiences when she was famous did leave me with a bad taste in my mouth I tot This was such an anticipation read for me as I was in my teens when Demi Moore was the biggest star in Hollywood I loved Demo Moore This somehow made me like her less which is was as I wanted to like herI watched an interview with her on Ellen and ordered the book immediately Don t get me wrong her childhood was a mess She suffered emotional neglect, abuse and a traumatic sexual assault However her later experiences when she was famous did leave me with a bad taste in my mouth I totally understood that this was her view of events however The description of the irony that Ashton Kutcher could have made a speech about underage girls being used for sex when he had been unfaithful with someone only slightly older than her daughter aggravated me Yes he was unfaithfulness but the woman was not underage In fact Kutcher is closer to that girl s age than he was to Demi s age It would have been appropriate for him to date a girl in her 20 she was in his 20 s Look I didn t expect a literary masterpiece but this did read a bit this happened to me and then this and then this etc The Psychologist in me also wondered how much of her enlightenment at the end of the book came from her therapist.The good news is that I inhaled this book as it was such a simple and easy read and finished it in almost one sitting The only way out is in she quotes in her epilogue, which strangely is what I also felt in the middle of the book where I was strangely stuck and just out of compulsion had to complete it The compulsion here is not meant in a good thriller suspense kind of a way, it slike, I ve committed so many hours to this now that I have to finish it typesI can imagine it must have taken a lot of courage for Demi to put herself in a such a vulnerable position by putting out her life s story with The only way out is in she quotes in her epilogue, which strangely is what I also felt in the

graphic details I honestly don t know why I picked this book Maybe it was the voyeur in me who had been aware of her car crash of life at least from the outside and wanted to know her side of story, I guess And tell her side of story she did The difficulty of her childhood and parents right out of hell to her fraught relationships and a complete lack of a coherent structure which came out in various ways in her addiction and behavior can be empathized in so many ways However, it seems to me she was very selective with the information she s sharing seems to take responsibility for her action only to later deflect it or rationalize it by some other event But, who am I to judge As far as she s concerned that s her truth that she put out in the world and I paid to read it and was entertained for a good few hours A win win I d say Just because things mentioned here seems far fetched to me doesn t mean it didn t happen or is exaggerated I d still favor her account over my suspicion, after all, she was there for all of her life s event A good pop corn read There is a step in Twelve Step recovery the 4th step that asks that we take a searching and fearless moral

Emmett Fox and widely read by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous In the 80s, 12 step recovery became widespread Those of us in recovery knew of the many celebrities who were sober, including Demi.I read this book and I think I will re read parts What is most gripping are the chapters on childhood and young adulthood being a misfit growing up with alcohol and pill addicted parents always on shaky ground never popular getting sober switching addictions to food and other people.This is honest She talks about the early days in her career Although she was not drinking she was overeating I woke up covered in crumbs Later, she switched her focus to her high profile husbands No matter how rich, successful, she was still co dependent and insecure Who am I if you don t love me Wow, who can t relate to that.Thank you, Demi Moore, for being so honest Also, thank you for sharing your experience of growing and aging These are really the best years Really they are As we age we fall upward, as Father Richard Rohr says in his book of the same name These can be the richest spiritual years I am embracing them with arms wide open Just finished it Wow Most boring book I ve ever read thru entirely I kept waiting for her to take responsibility for anything at all Nothing was her fault, apparently At no point did she make a mistake that was entirely her fault Wait, sorry Yes Taking Jon Cryer s virginity She apologized to him for that Why was that blameworthy She doesn t explain I m ok with Hollywood stars writing self serving autobiographies with glaring omissions but at least make them juicy This book reads like Just finished it Wow Most boring book I ve ever read thru entirely I kept waiting for her to take responsibility for anything at all Nothing was her fault, apparently At no point did she make a mistake that was entirely her fault Wait, sorry Yes Taking Jon Cryer s virginity She apologized to him for that Why was that blameworthy She doesn t explain I m ok with Hollywood stars writing self serving autobiographies with glaring omissions but at least make them juicy This book reads like a really long motivational speech geared toward young women Boring She talks about her obsession with body image but at no point discusses her obvious breast augmentation or face lifts She talks about the movies takes responsibility getting made but only the good ones A book or chapter at least about the phenomenally terrible Striptease would ve been fascinating, but no No mention of how bad it was Perhaps the only surprising aspect of this book was that Striptease is really pronounced StripTEASE This memoir was absolutely enthralling A must read for anyone who enjoys a great memoir I did the audio book version and Demi Moore narrated her own story and she did an excellent job Her story from beginning to end just pulls you in and gives such insight into her life and upbringing From being a innocent child with parents who were practically children themselves to a working actor in Hollywood, to a wife and then a mom The ups and the downs, the films and the expectations put upon her an This memoir was absolutely enthralling A must read for anyone who enjoys a

upbringing From being a innocent child with parents who were practically children themselves to a working actor in Hollywood, to a wife and then a mom The ups and the downs, the films and the expectations put upon her and her body for these roles Her relationships and family hardships with drugs and alcohol My take away from her story is this, she s been through a lot and she loves her family I have a lot of respect for her and I have always loved her as a actor She named a lot of famous people in her story, who might not be pleased She also told a lot of private and personal struggles about herself and her life I can t explain it but her voice doing the audio just seemed strong and she came across as so She just put it all out there and I think it was done tastefully What a nice surprise this book was I feel like this memoir is pretty honest from Ms Moore s POV meaning she doesn t hold back on unpleasant revelations and seems open about trying to learn and do better as her life continues I ve also got significant sympathy and respect for those who survive difficult childhoods to reach stability and those who succeed in overcoming addictions Inside Out also has good writing mechanics a lot of autobiographies have which makes it apleasant read and the subject matter is interesting.But I feel like this memoir is pretty honest from Ms Moore s POV meaning she doesn t

interesting.But I do have quibbles Mostly relating to her continued perspectives on past behaviors and decisions where I don t think she s really able to have clarity Of course, everyone has emotional perspectives they can t let go of Maybe being completely honest with ourselves in all ways isn t possible It s just that if you re going to put your story out there those gaps are going to be notable to some readers.There are aspects of her past relationships with men and her kids where I feel she still sees through the lens of dysfunction Worth reading Famed American Actress Demi Moore At Last

trauma alot because that is what she was experiencing and she never had proper ways of coping taught to her It appears that she knew enough to try and raise her children differently and with values and role models I wished there were a few parts she didnt have to tell us like which actor lost his viginity to her and she treated him like shit but overall I enjoyed it and feel that many can learn
