A well researched fine read. With obvious appeal to all us chaps, the book is good on biographical content and it's interesting to find out about all those lovely ladies. Who they were, where they came from and how the career blossmed etc - or as in some cases it simply didn't. Is a fine tribute to female beauty. I noted Martin Beswick surprisingly disliked her 1 or 2 second nude glimpse shot in Doctor Jekyll and Sister Hyde but later happily made a couple of soft sex films elsewhere delighting fans.
As no one seems to knock say Sean Connery, Brad Pit or other leading men for their looks and where it got them, so I don't see why women shouldn't be equally proud of their attractiveness. The book could even benefit from more saurcy shots than there are, as many just fine portaits appear. The best hammer movies were typically well underated and made many happy. The books a collectable gem.
