Good but not the best Marilyn biography,
This review is from: The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe (Hardcover)
This is a serious and considered biography of Marilyn, I learnt a lot more about her mother in particular. However I think that Donald Spoto's book 'Marilyn Monroe: the biography' is still the best Marilyn biography, It is better written and gives more consideration to her career, films and achievements. Spoto also cites all his sources more clearly than the author if this book. If you are really serious about learning more about this great actress i'd recommend the Spoto book, but this is still a good Marilyn biography.
