It’s a blink and you’ll miss it account of a great actress and her life and career. To call it brief is to be generous. It reads more like a telegram. Wait for something more informative and substantive to come along.

This short book takes my prize as one of the most dreary biographies I've read in ages. Unless you're a PR/Publicist in need of safe quotes, exact dates, and facts of the kind that obit writers save for a rainy day, buy Judi Dench's own personal writings and be done with it. Claire Shefchik's construct reminds of 'safe school books' - unimaginative timelines that can put children off a potentially fascinating subject forever. Still, it is no doubt useful background for a PR/Publicist with a close deadline. But let the grand Dame speak herself, from the section on Public Statements and Attibuted Quotes: "I think you should take your job seriously, but not yourself..."

Although the description does say 30 pages, this is really no more than a 4 page glossy magazine article, and is certainly very poor value for money.

I love Judi Dench, everything about her, read and watch everything she is in, some things more than once.
She is one of those few REAL ACTORS, who can make you forget, that what you see is acting, for you are with the character from the very beginning. Her talent is something you can not learn, ether one have it or not.

Judi Dench is my favourite actress and this was a major disappointment. It's really no more than a collection of newspaper clippings. Dreadful!

I found this 'book' boring. Almost every quote is followed by an immediate acknowledgement of the source, and this does not make for interesting reading. The author includes almost no insight to Judi's character - I doubt they have even met - and consequently I will be asking for a refund.
