imperfect but good,
This review is from: My World: In Pictures and Words (Hardcover)
I don't usually read biographies. In fact, I don't. But I made an exception just this once. But this one is easy. Just like the title of the book says, Peter tells the story of his life in pictures. I felt that the words were just supplementary to what he is trying to say with the images. The adage: "a picture paints a thousand words" comes to mind. I actually went through the book in the time it took to get home from Yeovil. So if you want a quick autobiographical read, pick this one up!
I came to know Peter, not by the stories of his life he tells, but by how he told it. The most telling of all, is the positive way he say things, even at his bitterest moments. He never bad mouthed anybody! That gives me a glimpse of his inner self. It tells me that deep down, here is a good man. Imperfect, but good. I also find it honest of him to admit the pain and hurt in front of the whole world. Not a lot celebrities would be brave enough to do that.
Overall Rating: 4 out of 5
