This book was Awesome with a capital 'A'. As a Bette Davis fan, this was quite a treat. I couldn't put it down! Right on the money. I bookmarked about a zillion pages just so I'd be sure to record some of the hilarious quotes by and about Bette. While it didn't get too carried away with the 'Bette vs. Joan' stuff, there's certainly enough there to make the reader smile. After finishing this, I had an entirely renewed respect and admiration for Bette Davis. Like she says right off, 'I'm no glamour puss.' She's an icon because she was a great ACTRESS. The fact that she was a star as well is simply coincidence. I love her because she tells it how it is.. no sugar-coating. VERY rare for Hollywood actresses.

Posted 02/16/09: I didn't consider myself a Bette Davis fan exactly, but I was curious about her, and this book left me with a compassion and admiration for her. She was a straight-shooter and a great actress, and it was so sad that her daughter stabbed her in the back when she was most vulnerable. I'm so glad she had Kathryn Sermak as a substitute daughter. I ended up also buying Bette's autobiography, "This 'n That," but this book was the perfect foundation for it. Really enjoyed it.
