In 1960, Barbra Streisand was just a seventeen-year-old Jewish girl with plenty of talent and even more ambition. Four years later, she had taken over Broadway as the star of Funny Girl, and had three platinum albums. Everyone of a certain age remembers when the phenomenon of Barbra Streisand rewrote all the rules of stardom. In this intimate portrait, William Mann incisively illuminates the woman before she became the icon.

Always have loved her singing and movies but puzzled by her lack of desire to perform, this book explains that. That said, when she was young and determined to be a star she was narcissitic and a real user, sounds like later she would acknowledge some of the people who helped her through the years. This is almost too much information, I am 65 and don't remember many of the names of producers, directors, musicians, ect. that were mentioned but I read the whole 500+ pages during the quarantine and am glad I did.
