Summary Begins with a broad year-by-year outline of Barbra Streisand's landmark achievements and a few of her more whimsical escapades. This is followed by a long essay on how her idiosyncratic self-realization marks her as a unique national treasure, an artist without limits. Then comes the major part of the book, a work-by-work analysis; this section is broken down into separate chapters, each organized chronologically: stage shows, television shows and concerts, movies, and recordings. Throughout, Mordden follows Streisand's independence, which he sees as her central quality.
