From Publishers Weekly:

In this candid, courageous autobiography, MacGraw discusses her artistic, emotionally cold parents, her schooling at Wellesley College and her stint as Diana Vreeland's "girl" at Harper's Bazaar . The focus, however, is on her struggle with addiction--alcoholism and "male dependency"--that grew as her acting career and personal life sputtered. A sudden star in her first major role, in Goodbye, Columbus in 1969, and the following year with the even more popular Love Story , she felt immediately that she was "in way over my head," mainly because of her fear of the camera ("I was scarcely trained at all as an actress"). Alcohol compounded problems and she continued to run after unavailable or hard-drinking or cold men. (Third husband Steve McQueen forbade MacGraw from working, yet convinced her to sign a prenuptual agreement that left her penniless after their divorce). In 1986, the actress spent a month at the Betty Ford clinic. Although she receives few film or TV job offers today, MacGraw is sober and "growing up at last." Photos not seen by PW. Literary Guild alternate; first serial to Cosmopolitan.

From Library Journal:

Twenty years ago, MacGraw was on top of the Hollywood heap, thanks to her starring roles in Goodbye, Columbus and Love Story . Ten years ago she was a star of a more dubious nature, thanks to the tabloids, following her tumultuous marriages to mogul Robert Evans and superstar Steve McQueen. Having not worked in film or TV in three years, McGraw now tells the whole sad story of her life. In what could be appropriately filed under "self-help," she writes extensively about coming to grips with her addictions to alcohol and men. This is certainly not a series of pretty pictures, but the clever use of the word "moving" in the title does work from time to time. Appropriate where celebrity bios circulate well.
