    This was a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. I sort of got addicted to watching "The Young and the Restless" (as well as its sister-show "The Bold and the Beautiful") while growing up. My mother was an avid fan, and that meant getting a chance to watch the episodes each night as she watched them on VHS while I did my homework. That means I have been hanging out in Genoa City and with some of these characters for something like 30 years, which is most of the show's 40-year existance.

That means I have been hanging out in Genoa City and with some of these characters for something like 30 years, which is most of the show's 40-year existance. Jeanne Cooper is the grand dame of the show. Her character of Ketherine Chancellor was a very early addition to the show, and viewers have joined her as Kay recovered from alcoholism, been kidnapped multiple times, fought with her one-again-off-again daughter Jill, and even had facial plastic surgery (in real life on the show). Jeanne Cooper shares her life story here with a number of the chapters focusing on her time on the show. With that said, she provides great insight into her family, including her less-than-perfect childhood and a rough marriage with her husband Harry Bernson with whom she had Corbin Bernson of "LA Law" and "Psych" fame as well as another son and daughter. Not surprisingly, I was mostly interested in her stories about the show and its cast. Jeanne is very nice, not really spilling gossip, though she does provide surprising information about herself such as a long-time affair with one of her co-stars. All-in-all, it was a really good book, though I doubt anyone who isn't a fan of "The Young and the Restless" would be particularly interested. I did like the narrative tone of the book. it felt like I was sitting down with me and just telling me her life story. She has no problem sharing her opinion, but she also is pretty modest and very generous to the people around her. I liked it enough that I read it in a day.

    As a years (and years) long fan of the Young and the Restless, I was excited when I heard Jeanne Cooper, aka Katherine Chancellor, had written her memoirs. This book is a humorous, yet touching look at the life of the 84 year old actress who has become so much a part of the lives of millions of devoted soap fans around the world. From her birth in the late 20's to her blossoming acting career, her disasterous marriage to Harry Bernson, to the birth of her three children (including Corbin Bernson As a years (and years) long fan of the Young and the Restless, I was excited when I heard Jeanne Cooper, aka Katherine Chancellor, had written her memoirs.

From her birth in the late 20's to her blossoming acting career, her disasterous marriage to Harry Bernson, to the birth of her three children (including Corbin Bernson) and her lucky (for us) casting in the roll of her life, which started as a three year contract to which she decided, "it's not like I'll still be playing this role in my 80's." Cooper is as strong willed as her TV character, and just as human. Truly enjoyed this book. But have to go now. Young and the Restless is on.

    Just because I am a fan of the Young and the Restless,and because Jeanne Cooper died back in the spring, AND because I am writing a blog and plan to feature Y&R soon, I read this book.

I was a bit turned off by Cooper's enormous list of "great pals," which at times seemed a bit fake, though I know her to be very genuine so maybe that was my natural reticence to such phony sounding offhand comments or my own projection of some self-loathing. I am not recommending this one to anyone but Y&R fans, and they will surely find it worthwhile.

    I picked this book up on a whim as I watched The Young and the Restless for a time some years ago and thought Jeanne Cooper was great. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I tend to read reviews after I finish a book. I get that no book is for everyone but some of the negative comments of this book seemed somewhat ridiculous. So much so that I thought I would clarify a few things for those thinking of picking it up: 1.

So much so that I thought I would clarify a few things for those thinking of picking it up: 1. Although J.C. does discuss her costars on Y&R, she does not ‘dish the dirt’ on them which disappointed some reviewers. I think it should be kept in mind that she was still working on the soap at the time this memoir was published so had she gossiped-it probably would have been awkward on the set. Also there is a possibility that she actually liked her costars. 2. J.C. loved her family. She proudly gushes about her family in some places in the book. This was just too much for some reviewers. If a mother’s love is upsetting for you -this is not the book for you. 3. If you’ve never seen an episode of The Young and the Restless and aren’t an actual fan of the author-then this is probably not the book for you. Granted some memoirs can be enjoyed regardless if you’re a fan. However, most celebrity memoirs (including this one) tend to be for fans of said celebrity. That said, if you’re a fan of the late, great Jeanne Cooper-I recommend the audiobook. She tells her story in her distinct voice and I thought it was a treat.

    This mediocre memoir is not the tell-all the author claims: it is mostly repeated praise for family members and co-workers, with few details about some of her interesting life experiences. On the first page of chapter one Cooper claims she will be unlike other autobiographies, saying, "I intend on sharing it all," but the book is all downhill from there. She spends most of the first fourth of the book slamming her husband and revealing how clueless she was in allowing him to trample all over her.

She spends most of the first fourth of the book slamming her husband and revealing how clueless she was in allowing him to trample all over her. She skips entire periods of time and at one point a whole decade of her life is summarized in about four pages. She runs through a list of TV shows and movies she appeared in without any stories about any of them. She name-drops other "good friends" like Doris Day but never says how she knows the people or tells any stories about them. The actress does reveal the name of some of the famous people she slept with but tells nothing more than that; as a matter of fact she simply writes their names in a one-paragraph list! She also reveals that she had a one-year off-screen sexual affair with her on-screen son, who was 20 years her junior. If you are a Y&R fan you might enjoy a couple of the behind-the-scenes stories but Cooper bends over backwards to make sure you don't believe the negative things you've heard about her on-set behavior. However, the few soap stories she does tell make her sound like a demanding diva who is difficult to work with. I would like to have heard more about her relationship with her son Corbin Bernson, who is only alluded to here briefly. At just over 200 pages, Cooper says very little about anything and certainly falls short of "sharing it all." It seems more like revisionist history for someone nearing the end of her career, who wants to put to bed all those nasty stories about her. Instead the book doesn't help her image much at all.

    As an original viewer of YR, it was quit interesting to read her take on things through all those years, especially her relationships with so many of the other actors on the show. It seems she walked the fine line between trying to tell all and trying to maintain some vestige of privacy for those in her very public world. While I'd love to have heard more detail, I do have to respect her professional integrity and ability to maintain some dignity about situations that were probably anything but As an original viewer of YR, it was quit interesting to read her take on things through all those years, especially her relationships with so many of the other actors on the show. It seems she walked the fine line between trying to tell all and trying to maintain some vestige of privacy for those in her very public world. While I'd love to have heard more detail, I do have to respect her professional integrity and ability to maintain some dignity about situations that were probably anything but dignified. It was interesting to note that while she was probably well paid for her work, she wasn't so rich that she had carte blanche to pay for anything she wanted, as in her plastic surgery experience. That definitely brought her down to the level of most of us and I say that with the kindest of meaning. That made her real, which of course she was. Another thing I appreciated about her was HER appreciation of the good life she had. She worked to achieve it but she also recognized that she had help along the way and I liked knowing she never forgot her origins and was willing to work hard to improve her goals and dreams. Everyone could take a lesson from her attitude. I also think she took the high road in the telling of her marriage. It could have come across much uglier and vindictive, but she maintained her dignity while admitting her own weaknesses. So, overall, it was a good read, not difficult, not perfect, but definitely a more accurate portrayal of the Hollywood life than we might have expected. I was glad to read it and I took away some good lessons for my own life. RIP, Jeanne. PS: At the end of the book was a disclaimer that it was a book of fiction. Why would an autobiography be called fiction?

    What a delightful book! Having been only an intermittent viewer, over the years, I still enjoyed the story of her life and the character she brought life and credibility to, Katherine Chancellor. Part behind the scenes look at the making of a soap opera, part tribute to her friends and co-workers for so many years, generous in her praise, sparing in her criticism and part showcase, by a proud mother, of her three beautiful children and their many accomplishments.

There are great stories about on set high-jinx, the odd argument or tiff, occasional screaming matches over dialogue and her long running campaign to get the last line in, in any scene with her good friend Eric Braeden, aka Victor Newman. If she improvised an additional line, at the end of the scene, he would carry right on with the exchange and the instant there was a pause after his line the director would immediately yell "cut!". Just one time she managed to one up him by throwing a line out and quickly exiting the scene, so he was left with nobody to respond to, and responding with glee at the sound of "cut" following her off stage. Get it, read it and enjoy it - they don't make them like Jeanne Cooper any more!

    I really enjoyed that. Years ago my Mom and I watched The Young and the Restless religiously and I recognized everyone she talked about in the book. I feel bad she had a crappy marriage but had three great kids to show for it.

    My only real criticism is I feel like she skipped over a lot and didn't provide enough specific stories or details over various parts of her life. I know a lot of people seemed disappointed it wasn't more about Y&R, but it's a memoir about her life, not just about her time on Y&R, so I felt like that aspect was balanced fairly well, just found it disappointing that she kind of skipped over most of her childhood and a lot of other parts of her life I'm sure I would have found interesting.

I don't feel like I got to know her very well, it felt like it just touched on the surface of her life. Now, this is not really a criticism as I'm sure it was out of honest belief as to what she was told growing up and ignorance of the truth, but she's not Cherokee despite her belief that both her mother and father were part Cherokee, as she spoke of in the book and also in interviews. I don't think she at all set out to deceive anyone, neither likely did her family that passed the story on to her, but as people in the Genealogy community know, it's an extremely common belief (usually a false one) among many Americans that they have Native ancestors and this false story gets passed down through generations. As soon as I read it, I couldn't help but wonder if this was the case or not, and so I did a little genealogical digging and her ancestors are definitely all white at least 4 generations back. I didn't bother spending any time trying to go further, so she could potentially have distant Cherokee ancestors, but even if so, in no way would they have faced the racism she thought they were running from when they moved to California, and based on an interview she did, she seemed to truly believe that at least one grandparent on either side of her family was full Cherokee and that was why they moved. It's interesting that this is such a common phenomena, even though it's often false. Also yikes to her son calling his production company "Team Cherokee" and using a feathered headdress as the logo (as I came across while researching this) even if the family were part Cherokee, considering they did not grow up in the culture I think that was a pretty gross move anyway.

    This was a great memoir written by the late great Jeanne Cooper, who is best known for her role as Katherine Chancellor on the CBS soap opera, The Young and the Restless.

I remember watching the show and seeing Katherine on the show and she was a force to be reckoned with the people of Genoa City (and yes, there were scene Jeanne Cooper spoke about in her book that I remember very well because Y&R got my mother and I to connect and bond over). In the end, this memoir was well-written and I loved listening to the audiobook because Cooper read it (so it felt like Katherine was reading it to you). Growing up with nothing in Oklahoma, she became a talented actress and hit a gold mine with Y&R. She also was a social activist with multiple charities and she is truly a remarkable woman. I highly recommend this memoir to everyone, especially if you watched Y&R.

    I’ve been a fan of The Young & the Restless since it debuted on CBS in 1973. I enjoyed watching the classy and ruthless Katherine Chancellor played by Jeanne Cooper. I remember her groundbreaking face lift shown on Y&R. And I remember her death. This is the third autobiography I have read by an actress. The first was by Carol Burnett; the second was from Sally Field. All were candid but Field’s was more exposing of herself and those important people in her life.

The four-star rating I planned to give dropped a star in the penultimate chapter. I did not need to read about her children and grandkids BORING!! Not a bad book but perhaps too long. Three stars

    What a fun memoir! When I was teen in the 70s and early 80s, nearly every woman and girl I knew watched Young and Restless. Of course, as a high school student, I could only watch it in summer, school breaks or snow days. I could keep caught up on the show via my mom, friends' moms or older coworkers at my evening waitressing job. I watched the show less as I grew up, but as this was my mother-in-law's " story" I would sometimes see it at her house or listen as she discussed it with my sister-in- What a fun memoir!

I'm surprised how much of the show I remembered while reading this book! This is probably why I can't remember any really important things in my life -not much room left in my brain. It was fun to relive some of that while reading this book. Cooper seems like she was a fun person with many interesting experiences, and a lot of the book was just laugh out loud funny.

    An honest and compelling read No one says it better than Jeanne Cooper. She was a brilliant actress, a forthright subject and most of all, a mensch who used her voice for good without always having to publicize it. You will enjoy the read about a working actress and how a successful daytime serial is made.

    Ms. Cooper's writing in her memoir was refreshing and revealing. Her life, both public and private, was much more than the public could see. Although she often lived in and around glamour. I was able to identify with her experiences on a different level. She managed to allow the reader to become familiar with the people she knew. It was a quick and fascinating read.

    If you're a fan of 'The Young and the Restless,' then this is a fun book to read. Jeanne Cooper was no Katherine Chancellor, she's a much nicer person. I did learn something that surprised me; she had a year long affair with one of her cast members. YR fans know him as Brock Reynolds. Yep, her TV son. lol If you're a fan of 'The Young and the Restless,' then this is a fun book to read. Jeanne Cooper was no Katherine Chancellor, she's a much nicer person.

    My only complaint is that this was too short! It was entertaining and endearing. I loved all her stories and wish there were many more. She was friends with so many famous and interesting people, it would have been amazing to hear all her stories with every one of them. It's so sad that we'll never get more stories from her wonderful life. My only complaint is that this was too short! It was entertaining and endearing.
