I felt that this book was very stimulating,and poignant,and adventurous,especiall what William Holden has gone through in his illustrious career.His life growing up was very interesting as well.The photos are very good,and this book is well worth reading if you are interested in William Holden,and how Hollywood works.I felt also this is a very inspiring book;how if one is strong,one can accomplish a great deal in life,like William Holden had.And to keep secure in yourself,and do not let the forces of alcohol,which is what destroyed William Holden,s life,not let this happen to you!A very well documented book;I congratulate the author on his authenticity;very precise indeed!
