This book will only be good if you do not know much about the man, but if you are more of a fan it will not be much use to you. This book is basically made of quotes from various articles or interviews pieced together, the kind of stuff most of us could have done. You won't learn anything new, and Firth has not co-operated with this book in any way. I bought it because I was curious but for me it was a waste of money.

Format: Hardcover
A lazy, sloppy book consisting of strung-together quotes from published articles ("As Colin told the Sunday Times ...") There is nothing new or original and she didn't actually interview anyone! It was irritating that she used the same quotes several times so she couldn't even be bothered to edit and neither could the publisher! Oh! And Yes, King Crimson et al are not part of the "Glam Rock" genre - a sloppy mistake. A shame she'll make loads of money selling it to the fans who are as obsessed with Colin as she obviously is! Don't waste your energy reading it let alone your money ...

The first book I downloaded when I got a Kindle for xmas since I am a HUGE Colin fan. However, to be blunt, it was a waste of money. Anyone who has followed Colin's work for years will know the entire content of this book and will see it for what it is.....a book put together made up of quotes, interviews and newspaper articles previously published which you have already read and most probably, also watched on youtube. Halfway through the book it was getting tiresome to read, to the point where I thought "I'm just reading one film critic review after another".
I would only recommend getting this book if you don't know a thing about Colin Firth - it's a good beginners book but there is nothing insightful at all.

Enjoyed the insight to Colin's life and the life of making movies. Easy to read and enjoy the tales of the star, Colin.

I thought it was not a biography, more a gathering of differents articles on Colin Firth, I was desappointed, it is a shame!
