I bought this book as I wanted to learn more about the larger than life Orson Welles. However, before you read this book you should make sure you watch as many of Orson's films as you can as they are dissected in detail and are refered to frequently. Unfortunately I haven't seen all of his movies and it was hard going trying to identify the author's sometimes obscure points regarding Orson's filmography. A good read, but more of a filmography than a standard biography. If this era is of interest to you I would also suggest reading The Howard Hughes Story - an excellent read!
