Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Who among us can resist the inimitable country wisdom and wit of Dolly Parton?” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Part memoir, part self-help, Parton’s book shares her life philosophies and the guiding principles behind her Dollywood Foundation, which provides free books to children through the Imagination Library program…Parton’s style is folksy and winsomely charming…Parton remembers struggling through classes in a one-room schoolhouse as a child, only to later return to her hometown as a successful performer and provide students with scholarships. Parton goes on to outline the practices that made her a successful businesswoman…Fans will particularly enjoy ‘The Wit & Wisdom of the Dolly-Mama,’ which contains Dollyisms like ‘I’m just the girl next door, provided you live next door to an amusement park,’ and ‘Home is where I hang my hair.’” Publishers Weekly
“Country music’s spunky doyenne presents an inspirational, feel-good stocking stuffer…Parton’s kooky, boobcentric sense of humor gels nicely with pages of song lyrics, anecdotes, and countrified witticisms. A pocket-sized pick-me-up for fans and dreamers.” Kirkus Reviews
