5.0 out of 5 stars Just take a chance, buy it ... please ... just for me ..., 3 April 2008
Anneke Wills is one of the most extraordinary people any of us could hope to meet, either in the flesh or through her writings. This book casts a unique light on "Doctor Who", on the lives of the people herein and on an entire era. Miss it and miss out. Too many biographies are little more than pathetic, woeful and self-serving hagiographies - with punches pulled, issues fudged and crucial players unnamed. This book is a rare and noble exception. Here you will find a soul laid bare, a way of life detailed and a truly wonderful human being exposed to the world. There are no words that could truly convey the value of this book, still less the unalloyed joy that is Anneke. It's your call, gentle reader, but opt out and you'll miss out - on a truly life-enhancing, priceless and jaw-dropping read.
