Reviews

"Enthralling."--Robin Young, NPR's Here and Now
"To Moore's great credit, she tells her story frankly but also with dignity, tact and generosity toward the important people in her life.... This discretion is emblematic of a memoir that is sometimes shocking but never salacious.... The actress in person proves to be very much like the woman on the page: thoughtful, questioning, at times openly insecure, but also forthright, often bracingly so. ... Is it OK that I'm here? That question seems to linger, along with How did I get here? If the book is intended, consciously or not, as an answer to both, it's a good and strong one."--Bruce Handy, Wall Street Journal
"A candid personal narrative, in which Moore fills in not only the details surrounding the most visible parts of her history ... but the portions of her life that she once fought to protect.... It is surprising to see such self-revelation from any prominent Hollywood actress--let alone one with Moore's particular accomplishments and setbacks."--Dave Itzkoff, New York Times
"Her story is equal parts adversity and resilience, told with candor."--Barbara Vandenburgh, USA Today
"What you get from this book that you can't get anywhere else isn't the rags-to-riches story but rather the honest and arresting way she details her slow drift into a different kind of emotional poverty, the sort that only decades of tabloid harassment and unchecked trauma can alchemize. She narrates, with the precision of a butcher's knife, her divorces, addiction, and eventual isolation, but from this she pulls forth her most potent character yet: a fully formed, gives-no-fucks woman of wisdom."--Lena Dunham, Harper's Bazaar
"The actress gets candid in a way few modern A-listers have.... Poignant."--People
"Astonishingly candid.... A fabulously frank and well-written book and, after such rollercoaster of a ride one finds oneself in awe of Moore for determinedly clinging on."--The Sunday Times
"Affecting.... A forthright revelation of hard-won survival."--Kirkus Reviews
β€œI'll say this for Moore: She's got issues, and she's made mistakes -- but in this book, she owns them. Fiercely....You want juicy details? That's what you expect in a celebrity memoir, and you certainly get them here....But you also get something you almost never find in a celebrity memoir: candor.”--Tina Jordan, New York Times Book Review
"Fucking fantastic.... A testament to survival."--Howard Stern
"Riveting."--Sunday Times
"Inside Out achieves what every good celebrity memoir should: it makes you look at the subject differently, and Moore emerges as simultaneously more relatable and more remarkable."--The Guardian
