    This big huge bio has nearly 600 pages of text and voluminous notes indicating voluminous research.  
    Excitingly written, it is bound to be "the" Bob Fosse bio for the foreseeable future.  Highly recommended.

        Prior to reading this, my knowledge of Bob Fosse consisted of knowing he directed "Cabaret" (film) and "Chicago" (stage version),
    and what biographical content that is in "All That Jazz".   I certainly did not know about his background and his effect on musical theater 
    and theater in general as well as his influence on film.  It is very clear after reading this book that to be great at something, it must
    completely consume you, and it must be absorbed in to every area of your life.   If you know nothing about Bob Fosse, as I didn't,
    but have interest in theater or film, this is a very worthwhile read because it gives a lot of insights in to the inner workings of both of those fields and the work and effort it takes to make them work.  Bob Fosse was extremely flawed and he never worked through his issues, and it caused him a lot of problems, but it is also the reason he was so meticulous in his craft.  I would gladly read this book again, it is a huge book at about 570 pages (the rest are references, yes, 100 pages of references!!!). It is a very exciting read, even if at times, it gets a bit bogged down in some mundane details, its a very minor quibble.

    Interesting Life!

    I borrowed it from the library and I loved it so much, I bought it! If you like Fosse, you will love this in depth story.
