Though the book promises to set the record straight, to an avid fan, it does not really live up to that proclaimation. Yet it is well performed and Cynthia has told her own story and done so in a straight forward and intersting way. For any fan of the Beatles and/or Lennon it is a must read. And she does relay some stories and information that have added some insight,humor and sadness into the story. Definetly hear the unabridged version.
What more can I say...it is Shatner on Shatner by Shatner-it will make you laugh,smile,think and take you on a memorable journey. Don't hesitate-enjoy.
I have always been a fan of Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Hope & Crosby.
This account of his life is not a scathing rumor mill driven book. But it does tell the story...worts and all of a legandary performer who entertained generations and seemed to find how to make it all work. I enjoyed the story and the performance...and if you thought you had a sense of who Bob Hope was this account of his life seems the most in depth and fair I have read to date...he had his demons and imperfections...as we all do to some extent...but I have the feeling if the author was able to be with Hope as he read the authors work...when he got to the end I think Hope would shut the book...look at the author and say "Yep...that about sums it up"
