I love Anthony Hopkins and I loved this book. It gave a really good insight into the man - far better than all those cut and paste jobs on actors that don't deserve it.
The author got some really good quotes from Sir Anthony and in the later part of the book, you get loads of great stuff from his now ex-wife, as well as friends and family, which helps to explain the psychology behind this complex and brilliant actor.
It is also really up-to-date. I can never know enough about Hopkins but this book is the most comprehensive account of the man you can get.
Buy it - and enjoy the life of one of Wales' finest.

I expected to learn more about Hopkins than I did. He is British after all. Was I disappointed 'no' it was a good read but ghost written, which is not the same as 'in your own words'.

Interesting reading that Anthony Hopkins left school with only one O-level in English. I know what that feels like.

Richard Attenborough said: 'Tony doesn't like rehearsal at all...too much rehearsal robs the dialogue of its spontaneity.' I have worked with one actor who felt the same way.

Lesley-Anne Down said: 'I never really got to know him at all.'

Having read this dull book, I don't feel as though I know who Anthony Hopkins is.
