More of the same, it would seem
I got this book as a gift because of my almost life-long fascination with Miss Crawford and her films. It seems to me that there are two kinds of Joan Crawford bios, the trashy, exposes which try to further the "Mommie Dearest" lies, or defensive whitewashes of Joan's life. This leans to the defensive side, and serves more as a very brief overview of some of Miss Crawford's films. Admittedly, I have just finished my first, cursory read of this book, and will read it again, but I must say that my first impression wasn't really all that good. Perhaps I'll review again if I find anything worth reviewing after the second read.

for someone who seemed to have such a exciting life this book was beyond dull. he also tells the story from Joan's perspective. there is nothing here beyond a press release. he is so in awe of her there is no dirt all how wonderful Joan is. no one is THAT good. this book sucks.
