Originally from Brooklyn, NY - Actress and activist, Mary Tyler Moore (born December 29, 1936) wrote this book in 2009.

Throughout her long career Moore (a multiple Emmy Award winner) became something of a cultural icon and also served as an inspiration for many younger actresses, and professional women.

Later in her life Moore was fairly active in charity work and various political causes, particularly those regarding the issues of animal rights and diabetes.

In May 2011, Moore underwent elective brain surgery to remove a benign tumour. On January 25, 2017 she died from cardiac arrest (due to pneumonia) at the age of 80.
