I wanted to know about Miss Day's life. I have watched all her movies and I just love her and them. The book reviews her movies.

Originally I was interested in Doris Day's "life." I was a bit surprised by the content of 'Considering Doris Day' at first. However, Doris wasn't born with a silver spoon in her mouth and she needed to work. This book shows enough of the Doris we love (as a beautiful person) and it pays respects to her remarkably large body of great work. He clearly and adequately presents the major challenges in Doris' personal and work life without being disrespectful. I found the listing of characters, films, songs and TV shows to be a great walk down memory lane. The book is a thorough documentation of her life's work. I am glad Mr. Santopietro did the yeoman's work of compiling this information and presenting it in an interesting and fun book. Her body of work deserves saving. This book also gives realistic insight into the process of producing entertainment.

I was extremely disappointed with this book. It's not a biography of Doris' life, it's a review of all of her work. The book goes into detail about every single one of her movies. The co-stars, plot, songs, dance numbers, director, etc. Then a review is given on the movie and he moves on to her next film. This continues with all of her movies, then her music, then her tv appearances, etc. If you are looking for a book about Day's life, skip this one. However, if you are curious about trivial movie information (that isn't that interesting to begin with) this book is for you! I'm just sad I wasted my money and time and still don't know much about her life. If only someone would have done a book review to warn me. Consider yourself warned!
