Excellent read Excellent actor,
This review is from: Stallone - A Rocky Life (Paperback)
This biography is certainly a must read for any Sylvester Stallone fan. I am a big fan of his movies and i wanted a to find a book that would give me more detail about the man behind the movies, this book gave me that information. It deals with his troubled up bringing and even explains the speech impediment that the star has had through out his career. The author talks in depth about stallone's work, be it the blockbuster classics that are 'Rocky' and 'Rambo' or the lesser known work like 'rhinestone' where sylvester plays a singing cab driver. It shows stallone going from living on the streets to living in a mansion in beverly hills. I felt this book got it right with its mix of his on screen life which was there for all to see and his off screen life, including past relationships. Most people will agree that the star of many movies spandind over decades still remains illusive in the eyes of the public.
This book is a must read whether or not you are a fan of sylvester stallone. The biography is easy to read and if you excuse the pun it really packs a punch.
