I was so looking forward to reading about the man behind the headlines, a cinematic legend, but found myself sorely disappointed with this book. It is a glorified "filmography" and talks at length about the producers and directors of his films. The research is basic - I could have written this book by reading DVD covers, watching press junkets and cutting and pasting snippets from other people's books. There are no in depth interviews, giving insights into the genius of Nicholson, nor is anything told of his life outside films. Relationships outside of the film industry are merely referred to, and his children get scant mention (amazingly the writer even gets the name of his eldest daughters mother wrong p279), and don't get me started on typo's and spelling mistakes.................if you want a biography on Jack Nicholson choose another book, and let me know what it's like! I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because I still adore Jack Nicholson and his films.

Although informative it was boring to read. i think jack Nicholson is a wonderful actor but something was missing from the way the material was presented.
