Summary

A revealing memoir and empowering manifesto - a voice for generations.
Rose McGowan was born in one cult and came of age in another more visible cult: Hollywood.
In a strange world where she was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualisation. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them for profit.
Hollywood expected Rose to be silent and cooperative and to stay the path. Instead, she rebelled and asserted her true identity and voice. She reemerged unscripted, courageous, victorious, angry, smart, fierce, unapologetic, controversial, and real as f*ck.
Brave is her raw, honest, and poignant memoir/manifesto - a no-holds-barred, pull-no-punches account of the rise of a millennial icon, fearless activist, and unstoppable force for change who is determined to expose the truth about the entertainment industry, dismantle the concept of fame, shine a light on a multibillion-dollar business built on systemic misogyny, and empower people everywhere to wake up and be Brave.
Includes two original songs by Rose McGowan.

Really interesting.

An interesting memoir of an intelligent woman. Worth listening to as an audiobook as her delivery is excellent. It made me laugh and get angry in equal parts. Rose pulls no punches, bravo!

Brave, Insightful and thought provoking.

Will change the way you view film and television, will make you examine the ways in which both influence your world view and will inspire you to really self examine.

Must read...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd recommend this book to everyone. Buy it. Read it (listen to it). Give it to your daughters. Give it to your sons.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

What Ms McGowan has faced and continues to face is heart-breaking. That she has been able to come through all of that a little dented but standing strong is testament to her resilience.

Essential for Humans

I spent the whole day consuming this book and audiobook at the same time. More than a book, I see this is a vessel for truth in Hollywood. Fascinating, disturbing, honest and powerful. Also, Rose’s voice has always fascinated me through the years. It has this ethereal quality to it that I find part alluring part vulnerable. I recommend doing what I did. Listen, read, get the album planet9 and you won’t look at Hollywood or even Rose’s movies the same way.
