    Best Hollywood Autobiography I've ever read!

    Tab Hunter Confidential is a fascinating look into the Hollywood of the 1950's and the man who helped to shape the image of that era. No one was better looking than Tab and it's interesting to read what a blessing and curse it must have been to walk in his shoes. The photos alone are worth the price of the book!!

    Take a fast ride through Hollywood of the 1950s.

    If you're looking for a scandalous, 'tell-all' confessional, you're going to be disappointed. Instead, Hunter wonderfully recreates the glittering tinsel and surprising charm of 1950s Hollywood. Few actors got to work with the number of agents, directors, producers, and genuine stars (and a few 'flash-in-pans') as Hunter, and with a few deft pen-strokes, he pays tribute and gives thoughtful criticism to them all. The book is a must for anyone interested in Hollywood history and life behind the cameras that gave us 1950s fantasies in the dark. Thoroughly enjoyable from cover to cover, the book explodes some Hollywood myths and provides insightful comments and background on the making of several famous movies. And reading between the lines, you'll discover a secret about the author that his close friends always knew while the rest of us only suspected: Tab Hunter is a class act!

    Glorious Fun!

    This book is wonderful fun. Tab Hunter's recounting of his climb to stardom in Hollywood is one of the best I've ever read, because Mr. Hunter has a talent for taking it all very lightly. I am loving this book so much that I hope he writes more books! You rule, Tab Hunter!
