I loved the book! I particularly like the story about the events following his car breaking down in Switzerland on a stormy night. . .
His final remark is what will he do for an encore? Work with Tim Burton is the up to date answer. Fitting some how for a man of his mould. The reviewer that is indelibly stamped on the cover of books when they go to print can be invariably an understatement or an overstatement. In this instance understatement. His book is funny to hilarious to hysterical, almost, I laughed out loud many times. It's not meant to be a comical book, far from it, but his style of writing is wonderful. Altho' one is...more

Well. Mr. Lee's life is pretty dang interesting. It was a long, long read. But I enjoyed reading his anecdotes, especially about his friendships with great actors and his life as a father and husband. I'm amazed he survived so many bouts of malaria too. Kudos to him. I now have a desire to see every single one of his films. I respect him even more than I already did, after reading this.
Nathan Robinson
Some good anecdotes. But a bit too much golf for my liking.

I bought this book at Forbidden Planet (London) for a book signing with the great man himself!
I enjoyed this very interesting and amusing autobiography.
Even if you a not a fan, the interesting life of Mr Lee is still very much worth reading about.
