A weak biography . The book was poorly written, and it feels like she must have been a coauthor or had complete control over the contents. . It is very superficial with only those details that are complementary. The book did a decent job of detailing all her ups and downs but there was no incite or reasoning for some of her erratic behaviors. I really would not recommend this, and wish I had read something else to get an idea of what she was like.

Enjoyable, Factual book but I felt too much was written about her early childhood and not enough about her later life. Fascinating life to read about however.
