Overview

ASHLEY JUDD FROM BIRTH TO THE PRESENT (2014)

Although her mother, Naomi, and older sister, Wynonna, rose to fame as the country music duo The Judds, Ashley Judd took her own road to stardom, becoming one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood today.

In this biography, which examines Ashley's life from birth to her appearance at the 2012 Democratic National Convention and beyond to 2014, author and journalist James L. Dickerson recounts her difficult childhood in Kentucky and California, her sometimes troubled relationships with her mother and sister, her big-screen breakthrough in the 1993 movie "Ruby in Paradise," her ongoing series of starring roles, her life-long struggle with depression, and her marriage.

Discover the inside story of the actress who has starred in movies such as "Heat," "Double Jeopardy," "Kiss the Girls," "High Crimes," and "The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood." Journey with her as she makes the transition from actress to social activist, addressing the General Assembly of the United Nations on matters of the greatest importance. Her most recent acting role was in the ABC-TV series "Missing," delivering a stunning performance that New York Times critic Mike Hale hailed as "not quite like anything else on television at the moment." The series was cancelled early in 2012.

This updated and expanded is an excellent reading companion for Ashley Judd's 2011 memoir, "All That is Bitter and Sweet."

    Most informative book about Judd

    I have read both this book and Ashley Judd’s “All that is Bitter and Sweet,” and I must say that I found Dickerson’s biography to be better written and better reading than Ashley’s memoir, mainly because Ashley’s book is light on biography and heavy on self-absorption. This book begins at Ashley’s birth and carries you all the way up to the present time. Dickerson tells you all the things that Ashley was reluctant to tell in her own book, and it does it with respect and empathy for the troubles she has experienced in life. If you want to know what makes Ashley tick, read Dickerson’s book. If you are more interested in Ashley’s politics, read her memoir. If you are like me, read both books and get the full picture.

    Not worth it

    I regret buying this book and surely the author must feel shame at having his name attached to such a poorly written piece. This reads like a first draft, full of mistakes and typos. This could have been forgiven if he'd done careful research. This is just a filmography, and a very poorly written one.

    SAVE YOUR MONEY!

    Poorly written, bad grammer, spelling and subject matter. Ashley sounds just like Naomi. Not a group of women you would want to spend any time with. Uninspiring from start to finish!
