`The book is compelling in the extreme' --Sunday Times
'Both impeccable and rollicking, and a not disloyal tribute to a man who . . . could have had so much more' --Observer
'A long, gossipy, supremely readable book' -- Independent
'Biskind's book, not Beatty, is the star attraction here'

Top Customer Reviews
Beginning just before Splendour in the Grass and continuing past the star's most recent film, Town & Country, the book charts the films, the spats, the womanizing and the politicking all in Biskind's characteristically punchy prose. Beatty has co-operated with the book, after a fashion, but is largely on hand to merely correct other people's versions of events, not to offer any self-analysis. Unfortunatley several key people have declined to speak with the author including long-time friends and collaborators Robert Towne and Jack Nicholson. Plenty of people have spoken though and the book is chock-full of stories, good and bad.Read more ›
