Exactly what it says it is. A life in something like 8-10 pages (nothing you wouldn't have read elsewhere about Grant. All of this is covered in other biographies), followed by annotated pictures, most of which I hadn't seen before.

Definitely a book for fans.

Few actors ever equaled Cary Grant’s elegance, sex appeal and versatility on screen. Yann-Brice Dherbier’s book offers up 170 pages of black and white photographs of Grant at work, at home and at play. It’s an entertaining photographic tribute that reminds us that Grant truly was one-of-a-kind.

"Cary Grant: A Life in Pictures is not intended for anyone who wants an in-depth look into the star's life, or a critical analysis of his films, but rather a pleasant pictorial reminder of the man's style and elegance."
