    • Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live someone else's life? Nancy Weber didn't just wonder, she decided to actually DO it. This is an intriguing look at what happened when she placed an ad for someone to swap lives with. A very open minded look at life in the 1970's. * Thank you to for this first reads giveaway*

    • A fascinating look into what it was like to be confident, well-off and curious in the mid-70s in Manhattan, free to be deliciously narcissistic during an incredibly narcissistic era. A terrific read about an inevitable "disaster," as the author later called it. Well, of course it was! Our lives are uniquely ours because of a thousand decisions, from whom to marry to which paintings we hang where. How Weber assumed these were details that could be thrown on or off like a coat is beyond me. I didn [...]

    • This is one of my most frequently re-read books - I sat up all night reading it the first time. Musing on what makes each of us who we are, wondering if taking on the environment, work, friends and lovers of another will make her more other than self, Nancy Weber initiated this adventure.1970s Greenwich Village, a mix of creative and crazy characters, the reactions of Nancy's and Micki's (the swap partner) friends to the experiment, their emotional roller coaster --all this drew me in to Nancy's [...]

    • This is the book my life exchange was based on, it's a really intriguing read. I highly recommend. Fascinating and frustrating. Nancy is a gracious, lovely person today - she hosted the life exchange.

    • Not like anything else I've ever read.

    • Interesting as an historical document of feminism in the 1970s.
