Publisher's Summary

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.

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!
