I have significant ones that will haunt me forever and which I hope I have been brave enough to confront in this book.' So says Jane Fonda in the preface to 'My Life So Far', a powerful account of an extraordinary woman. Oscar winner, controversial political activist, groundbreaking fitness guru, wife, mother, lover, philanthropist - just some of the roles Fonda is known for. In this candid book, written by Fonda herself, there are messages for women of all ages as she holds a mirror up to her own life but lets us see ours reflected there. Now in her 60s, Fonda looks back over her life but also looks forward to the future.
