Everything I Need To Know I Learned From Dolly Parton


Throughout her life, Dolly Parton has been seen as a beacon of guts, straight-talk, kindness, and grit, beginning her life in poverty and growing to become one of the most resonant, prolific, and long-lived icons of the modern era. In this book, Dolly’s personal code of conduct is transformed into practical guidance for readers who want to know how she would handle many of the real-life challenges they themselves are facing. Calling upon Dolly’s personal examples, quotes, song titles, and lyrics—plus famous film scenes that were meaningful to her—as well as personal anecdotes provided by her co-stars, friends, family members, and peers, Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Dolly Parton: Country Wisdom for Life's Little Challenges provides insights into how to handle dozens of challenges, from managing heartbreak and succeeding at work to raising children and responding to inequality. Dozens of quotes, insights and full-color photos provide a glimpse into how Dolly has lived her life and how her approach can help readers overcome anything thrown at them. Hardcover; 176 pages.
