A bit haphazardly organized, but still a really interesting read. Aissa Wayne's tone in the book is quite honest as she discusses the good and difficult parts of being John Wayne's Daughter, and about the different facets of her own character as she discusses her own actions during her father's lifetime.

Great info book!!! Loved learning more about my favorite actor!!! I enjoy the info I learned from it!!
This book was loaned to me by a neghbor who is gaga over John Wayne. I'm not a John Wayne fan as far as acting goes, but I really enjoyed Aissa Wayne's book about her father. Although he was probably a hard man to live with, he was a true patriot and loved his country. I wish he were alive today to defend us still.
the book was a quick read. The book was a little weak in serious content, it would add to anyone's knowledge of the Duke.
recommended to all fans (or relatives) ha ha

This is more about what it is like to have John Wayne as her father. But I really loved reading it because I could relate to a lot of the things she went through.
Very interesting!
