#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Discover Jane Fonda, in her own words--and now experience the story of her life in the HBO documentary Jane Fonda in Five Acts .

"To hold this book in your hands is to be astonished by how much living can be packed into sixty-plus years."-- Los Angeles Times

America knows Jane Fonda as actress and activist, feminist and wife, workout guru and role model. In this extraordinary memoir, Fonda shows that she is much more. From her youth among Hollywood's elite to her film career and her activism today, Fonda reveals intimate details and personal truths she hopes "can provide a lens through which others can see their lives and how they can live them a little differently." Surprising, candid, and wonderfully written, My Life So Far is filled with insights into the personal struggles of a woman living a remarkable life.

"In the process of writing this book I discovered there were clear, broad, even universal themes that ran through my life, a coherent arc to my journey that, if I could be truthful in the telling, might provide a road map for other women as they face the challenges of relationships, self-image, and forgiveness. What I did not anticipate was how my journey would also resonate with men."-- From the Introduction
