Although the photographic image of Audrey Hepburn is always welcome, this is no more than a hardback scrapbook. Its design is curiously old-fashioned, reminiscent of cheap publishing in the early 1980s. Krenz's text is never more than adequate, and by relying so heavily on second-hand sources without checking her facts, she has fallen into the trap of repeating the spurious claims of an earlier, self-deluding biographer.
With several, fine photographic biographies available (those by Karney, Sembach and Ricci for example), there seems little reason to purchase this book. But its publisher is surely aware of the extent to which Audrey is still profoundly missed around the world, and the immediate market thus available.

This is a truly beautiful book for anyone who has a fascination with the life of this extraordinary woman.
Charting her life in beautiful pictures and well worded commentary this book is an ideal present for any Audrey Fan.

This book gives a glimpse of Miss Hepburn's life with pictures taken in the main events of her life including the major movies. There is little text with lots of pictures. There are some less known photos but mainly the classical ones. A book of pictures (this is actually what it is) deserves better quality printing and paper material. This book lacks it and hence suffers from it.
