The first half of this was very good indeed, and I was thinking that it would continue in that vein. But then things began to get rather sketchy, and a bit puzzling as well (eg, Gene Clark, who was portrayed as being very skittish about his affair with her, suddenly shows up in the front row of a M&P concert with a big grin on his face). Certainly it's difficult to figure out what the writer is thinking sometimes, and her moral compass doesn't always seem to be too highly magnetized. Okay, s [...]

I have NEVER cared for Michelle Phillips and my preconceived notions of her were confirmed in this book. It was fascinating to learn more of the background on a lot of their songs and interpersonal relationships. As it's one persons account, you have to take that into consideration, and a lot of the turmoil and disruption in the band came directly from her actions. She justifies herself, as we all do, and I can see her point, but I just don't care for her. Regardless, I love it. Read it in one n [...]

Doesn't hold up very well in comparison to the John Phillips memoir. Not nearly as comprehensive or entertaining.

If for only the first few chapters how california dreaming the song was made and the sheer coincidence i read it new years day about being in ny and wanting to get in the sunshine and see the rose bowl for real ,this was cool enuf for me! Also she did not bash John at all, in fact she saw his genius in music and respected it in the book! All The Leaves are Brown,And The sky is grey,I,ve been on a walk on this winters Day

Writing Style: 3.5/5Overall Rating: 4/5 A must-read for anybody whos a fan of Michelle Phillips, The Mamas and the Papas, or 60's music in general.In this autobiography, Michelle Phillip's outlines how The Mamas and the Papas came to be, and we get to learn about her own early life and how she came to meet John Phillips, Cass Elliot, and Denny Doherty.The book was nice, short, and to the point. You hear more about the fights, the songs, the affairs, the good times, and the bad times. Not only th [...]

This is an interesting read about the Mamas and the Papas that describes how the group originated and developed. Phillips is not a writer and repeats herself at times but her story describes what and how it all happened. She was there and involved. Worth reading if you are interested in this group. These young talented people worked hard and went through many life experiences for which they were unprepared even when they attained the fame they sought. The music they made was incredible. John Phi [...]

I have to say overall I was not impressed with the writing. I love The mama's & The Papa's music so I wanted to read more about them as people. I read John's daughter's book about his sexual relationship with her.So I also wanted to see if he had some kind of warning signs with his wifeYes is my oppinion he did. Michelle being only 16-17 when they strated a sexual relationship, while he was married to a woman he had two children with. All I really learned is how they met and what drugs they [...]

Eh, I don't know if it's really the "true" story. It's definitely her true story, as her brain filtered it. If you are a considerable fan of Michelle or M&P, you'll first interesting, otherwise there are probably better choices for the casual fan. Also it's just a wall of text.

I read this a couple of years ago and failed to put it on my list. This is Michelle Phillips memoir of one of my favorite groups "The Mamas and the Papas". A must read if you are interested in the history of this legendary group.

Reads well given it was written 28 years ago. This is Michelle's side of the story.

Not great, not terrible. No index. Nevertheless, there are some pretty good anecdotes and a nice portrait of the world of the hippie beautiful people, circa 1966-67.
