    One thought on “I Ain't Much, Baby--But I'm All I've Got”

    1. I read this in the early l970's during a very difficult period ofmy life. One sentence grabbed me: "I will never again do anythingI am not committed to." I taped it to the wall of my office.It gave me courage to leave an unhappy marriage. I did so and havenot looked back. Thanks Jess Lair for positively changing my life.Very inspiring writer.

    2. I'm usually not one for self-help books, even more one's that are inspirational, but this one really struck a cord. I found it on a basement shelf during the summer and wanted a light read, instead I found something that changed my perception of things in a lot of ways. It may have been written WAY before I was born, but the ideas and ways to change still resonate now.

    3. These were the first 'self-help' books I ever read - didn't even know there was such a thing as 'self-help' books back then. Oh well, but I really LOVED this oneed this poor little angst-ridden catholic school girl back then.

    4. Jess Lair really inspires one to live their truth in "I Ain't Much Baby But I'm All I Got," by being straight forward, to the point, and gives all a reality check. Being inspired by true life situations that can move people past their current state of being is what is done in this book.The book was published in 1995 and still lends to the "old way" of doing things that works and is simple. You have the ability to change yourself and this book says how. It shows why and how things can be changed [...]

    5. I read this account of the author's life on advice from my sister, many years ago. It got me interested in his quest for spirituality following a heart attack while he was just in his thirties. The guy is a prolific wordsmith and story teller, and all his books have helped me to live more in touch with others

    6. If you need a pick me up and you're ready (need) to stop feeling sorry for yourselfis book is AWESOME!!! Thank you Mrs. Sharpe for introducing me to this book my senior year of high school! I still quote parts of this book to my children (17, 14, and 10 months)!

    7. I have no idea where I got this book -- it was used when it fell into my hands and I still have that tattered much-underlined copy. I've pottered around with self-help books from time to time, but this one seemed so much from the heart.He bases his life on the 12 Steps and says he attends AA meetings although he is not himself an alcoholic. He says one of the most important things in life is to have five good friends and it takes at least a year to find just one. Difficult for me, having had to [...]

    8. I realize this was written in the early 70's, when everything was very touchy feely and introspective. That said, it's overly wordy with tons of stories that take a long time to get to the point, and others that never finish. It's not terribe, there are certainly some great points, and for the time it was written was probably about the right speed. All that being as it is, this book takes a lot of focus to pull the main points out of the stories and tangents here.

    9. Only you can direct your growth. Only you can choose the lines that your growth can take so it truly reflects your uniqueness -- and adds to the strength you need to keep on growing.

    10. One of the most memorable nonfiction books that I have read. Of course back when I read this, I had less to remember!

    11. I read this book while in college, and it gave me a new perspective on what is really important in life !! A new way to look at yourself.

    12. This book is a must have for those who are readers and changers and dreamers. Merely, those who were willing to make a difference between today and yesterday .Jess Lair explains how an acceptance of yourself and others can make you change.This book was the result of a big drift in Jess's life after a non expected heart attack . Jess notes"And we all need to understand that each of us were uniquely created": I think I have Linda's book the women who reviewed this book in 2009, idk i bought it fro [...]

    13. Exceptional little book. Out of print, but well worth finding. The focus of the book is self-acceptance, accepting your limitations and opportunities and learning to work with the resources provided you rather than focusing so much negative energy on reviewing what you don’t have! Note particularly Chapter 11, “If there’s a problem here – I caused it.”
