blessings in disguise is the book for those wanting to know more about alec guinness and how he became one of the 'greats'. The book details his twenties and his entering the world of theatre and film, but mainly revolves around great actors of his time and before, some almost forgotten and how they influenced him. His observations are charming and witty and display the essence of his younger self, also his almost bemused interest in the human character.

This is a fair read. It's a record of sorts of his life but one feels that the writer is only allowing a small window to be opened on his life.There are anecdotes about the people and places in his life and the people he met on his way to becoming an actor. It is interesting enough but leaves you with a sense of wanting more-not in an intrusive way but one gets the feeling there is more to be disclosed and is left unsaid.

This book gives you tour for Alec Guinness's live. It's a enjoyable reading full of dramatic and very funny stories. Alec's live, was as rich and interesting as his memorable performances.
