Jane Lynch, best known for her award-winning role as hard-driving cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on Glee, tells the story of how she reached success by anything but a straight path. From teen alcoholic to out lesbian, from strange coincidences and chance meetings to offbeat character roles and finally a star turn--part comic memoir and part inspirational narrative, this is a book equally for the rabid Glee fan and for anyone who needs a new perspective on life, love, and success.

A terrific story of a very determined midwesten girl who worked very hard to make her dreams come true.

She was once a drunk but a cheerful and funny drunk. Her preHollywood actor's life is quite fascinating and often laugh-out-loud funny. Last portion thanking Everyone bogs down but otherwise worth it.

Very funny memoir. Gives you a sense of "I can do it" while you're reading.

This was a sweet memoir. I really like Jane Lynch and it was interesting to read about her childhood, battle with addiction, coming out and all the happy little accidents that led her down her career path. She's someone I'd like to hang out with.
