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.

Not so great - - - mostly put together with other writer's interviews. A little interesting, an Autobiography written by Dame Diana would be better.
