Publisher's Summary

In this book, you will learn a lot about Norma Jeane (a.k.a. Marilyn Monroe) and what a horrible childhood she had, in and out of foster homes, and why she married at such a young age. You will find how she was "discovered" as a movie star and how hard she worked to climb her way up a glass wall in the Hollywood scene. You will also find what an insecure person she was and how she turned to alcohol and drugs to bolster her insecurities. She never felt like she could trust anyone and had good reason to feel that way.

Inside, you’ll read about:

  • Norma Jeane Mortenson is born
  • Norma Jeane marries for the first time
  • Marilyn hits the movies and marries DiMaggio
  • Marilyn and Arthur Miller’s marriage
  • The Kennedy rumors
  • Psychiatrist visits and notes by Marilyn
  • DiMaggio family states Monroe was not alone when she died
  • And much more!

How she came to be smack in the middle of the Kennedys' lives and why she should have never become involved with anything they touched. She could not stand the temptation; she had to dip her toes in the water of their fame, too. Unfortunately, it seemed to pull her to the dark side. It will be evident when you read who loved her most for all his life until he died. He never used her but genuinely loved her. She realized it too little too late.

superfluous listen

A superfluous listen to Marilyn Monroe's biography with a great amount of bit related to the Kennedy & her insecurities and not so much about Marilyn Monroe as a person and personal life

Excellent Brief Historical Account

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
This is an excellent compilation of events from Marilyn Monroe's life. Starting with her birth and childhood through her tragic passing, this book touches on all aspects of her life. I enjoyed the narration, and I felt that the author managed to give an accurate account of the tragic and fascinating life Monroe lived. I also appreciate that the author gave recommendations for other books about Monroe's life to further research at the end. If you want a brief, but thorough history of her life this book is great!
