4.0 out of 5 stars gripping, intense, entertaining - like the man himself., 30 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Robert Shaw: The Price of Success (Hardcover)
a rare biography on one of the world's most under-rated actors, this book is one to cherish as you won't find much information on robert shaw.

the author(who was shaw's agent), has a much more direct and personal touch than the robert shaw book that was published the same year; he produces a lot of information on shaw's private demons, his struggle with alcohol, becoming disillusioned with film acting etc.

it all makes for intense, and sometimes gripping reading. the photographs selected are very good as they highlight robert shaw in different ways; t.v, films, stage and at home.

i hope another biography of this gifted actor is published in the near future.

I read an interview with 2 of Shaw`s daughters who said this book was full of lies from start to finish .
Hopefully a balanced truthful account of his life will be published
