  • The Elephant to Hollywood

    Charming, engaging, and surprisingly forthright, Michael Caine gives us his insider's view of Hollywood and the story of his brilliant second act. When he was in his late 50s, Michael Caine believed his Hollywood career had come to an end. The scripts being sent his way were worse and worse. Salvation came in the unlikely form of his old friend Jack Nicholson, who convinced him to give acting one more shot. What followed was one of the most radical comebacks in film history.

    Kaye says: "A pleasure!"
    "A great story from a great storyteller."
    Overall

    Just like his first book "What's It All About" this is a wonderful read, except this time I had the pleasure of Michael Caine as the storyteller. And what a wonderful story teller he is. His stories of the changing Hollywood miovie business along with entertaining tales of the Hollywood he first knew are the core of thiis book. The heartbeat is his candor about his attitude toward movie stardom. If you are looking for a biography of a movie star this is not your book, this is the story of a working actor who has mastered his craft on film and as the author of his own story.

    I must confess to having a crush on Michael Caine since I was 18 and fell in love with him in 1966 when I saw him in the Ipcress File. No James Bond for me, Harry Palmer was my man. And Michael Caine still is.

  • The Beatles: The Biography

    Even before the Beatles hit the big time, a myth was created. This version of the Beatles legend smoothed the rough edges and filled in the fault lines, and for more than forty years this manicured version of the Beatles story has sustained as truth, until now.

    Overall

    I think if you grew up with the Beatles or are a big fan of their music you will find this well written biography excellent listening.

    FBI agent Alex Cross is on vacation with his family at Disneyland when he gets a call from the Director. A well-known actress was shot outside her home in Beverly Hills. Shortly afterward, an editor for the Los Angeles Times receives an e-mail describing the murder in vivid detail.

    Tonda says: "For the True Alex Cross fans!"

    I thought Patterson had lost his touch till I listened to this book. Top rate James Patterson.
