NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “Not your typical Hollywood autobiography. Brutally honest, restless and questing.”  —O, The Oprah Magazine   Sharon Stone tells her own story: a journey of healing, love, and purpose. Sharon Stone, one of the most renowned actresses in the world, suffered a massive stroke that cost her not only her health, but her career, family, fortune, and global fame. In The Beauty of Living Twice, Stone chronicles her efforts to rebuild her life and writes about her slow road back to wholeness and health. In a business that doesn’t accept failure, in a world where too many voices are silenced, Stone found the power to return, the courage to speak up, and the will to make a difference in the lives of men, women, and children around the globe. Over the course of these intimate pages, as candid as a personal conversation, Stone talks about her pivotal roles, her life-changing friendships, her worst disappointments, and her greatest accomplishments. She reveals how she went from a childhood of trauma and violence to a career in an industry that in many ways echoed those same assaults, under cover of money and glamour. She describes the strength and meaning she found in her children, and in her humanitarian efforts. And ultimately, she shares how she fought her way back to find not only her truth, but her family’s reconciliation and love. Stone made headlines not just for her beauty and her talent, but for her candor and her refusal to “play nice,” and it’s those same qualities that make this memoir so powerful. The Beauty of Living Twice is a book for the wounded and a book for the survivors; it’s a celebration of women’s strength and resilience, a reckoning, and a call to activism. It is proof that it’s never too late to raise your voice and speak out.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Shows a woman who’s spent the majority of her years in the public eye seizing the opportunity to tell her story entirely on her own terms.” Time
“She offers a hopeful glimpse of life beyond trauma.”  Washington Post
“This is a remarkably special audiobook listening experience…This extremely candid work reveals the tremendous strength and resilience that she has exhibited since her stressful childhood. Stone simply does not accept failure, and her fierce determination is evident throughout her performance.” AudioFile
“This is not your typical Hollywood autobiography. Brutally honest, restless and questing, Stone bravely grapples with her own imperfections with courage and candor.” O, The Oprah Magazine
“With her wicked sense of humor on full display, the memoir is catnip for fans who have never managed to crack the exterior of the elusive star. The behind-the-scenes anecdotes from her four-decade career are predictably fabulous.” Vogue
“In this courageous, daring and tender-hearted memoir, Sharon Stone interrogates her own trauma and a myriad of losses and discovers the gift of clear seeing.” Dani Shapiro, New York Times bestselling author
