blessings in disguise is the book for those wanting to know more about alec guinness and how he became one of the 'greats'.

This book gives you tour for Alec Guinness's live. It's a enjoyable reading full of dramatic and very funny stories. Alec's live, was as rich and interesting as his memorable performances.
