Recently voted the "sexiest television star of all time" by TV Guide readers, Diana Rigg is best known as the brilliant and seductive British agent, Emma Peel on The Avengers. The Tony and Emmy award-winning actress is famous not only for her acting talent, but for her keen intelligence and strong opinions as well.
Diana Rigg biographer Kathleen Tracy reveals the fascinating professional and personal life of this rebellious, outspoken icon of feminism - from her childhood in India and early days with the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London to her tenure on The Avengers, her role in the Bond film On Her Maiesty's Secret Service and her distinguished stage career.

I expected to learn something about Diana Rigg that I did not know previously to reading this book. Instead I learned that most of what we all know about Diana Rigg we have learned by reading the endless non-indepth newspaper & magazine interviews that apparently the writer used to put this book together. I do not understand how Kathleen Tracey (with a straight face) can say she 'wrote' this book. What Ms. Tracey did was put this book together using a variety of boring interviews that basically tell us nothing about Ms. Rigg other than she holds everything in. I hope that someday Ms. Rigg either writes her story or authorizes someone to but, somehow I doubt it. I guess all Ms. Rigg owes the public is a good performance and not a look into her very private life.
Good book I like it but its need more details on what happen
Not so great - - - mostly put together with other writer's interviews. A little interesting, an Autobiography written by Dame Diana would be better.
