I bought this book as a present for myself and love it! Its one of those coffee table books once you pick up you can't put down. There are excellent portraits of a large selection of celebs in different eras. When a photo says so much it doesn't need words there are many that match this description. One of my favourites is of Faye Dunaway, sitting slumped in a garden chair by a huge swimming pool, draped in a silk dressing gown, surrounded by newspapers at 6am, the morning after winning an Oscar (which is on the table next to her) the night before, & being up all night. So many of the photos capture the mood and atmosphere of the moment. This is what I look for in a photography book, people I recognise or have character and pictures you cannot tear yourself away from. Some books can be so self indulgent and pretencious but this book has it all for me. If you love people photography then I challenge you to not fall in love with at least one of the excellent collection that is here

Having long held an interest in photography I was keen to see why Terry O'Neill has been respected so much over the years. His book both insipred and depressed me; why has this man been given so much talent and the rest of us been short changed! Every photograph took my breath away. Not only did I enjoy every page, but I keep opening up the book to make sure my eyes did not deceive me - doesn't this man know how to take bad photographs! I guess he leaves that to the rest of us to do! An absolutely incredible book and for me a joy to cherish forever. For those of you considering purchasing this book, don't waste any more time thinking about it - GET IT NOW!!!

I could wax lyrical about Terry O'Neill, having admired him for a few years since researching him for my photography coursework at college. All I can say is I wish I had this book back then! There's so many wonderful photos that you can't find anywhere else and if you're interested in portrait photography, this is your bible!

Great photographs of true hollywood icons, not the idiots around today. Nice little anecdotes from terry o'niell aswell to go with each picture. worth the money.

the book is in good condition in the main, just the dust jacket showing a little wear. A A Gill's forward is excellent let alone the wonderfully and telling photographs by O'neil

Brilliant photos of actors/actresses of yester-year. Something to flick through when you're at a loose end. Good condition and it met my expectations.

A great British photographer capturing unique celebrities - an amazing combination. 'Celebrity' is time-capsule of images - a brilliant read.
