After watching all of Morgan Freeman's movies, i knew that for sure he was my favorite actor beyond the age of 50. This man is absolutely true and wise because of he views life. Not only does his narrations show this deep, soulful voice, his personality and mindset is even more profound. This man's experiences during his childhood are also very fun to read about. In this biography however, it's just a bunch of quotes slapped together in a book. I feel that if there was a book to be written about ...more

Morgan Freeman is one of my favorite actors, and overall this book was pretty good, which is why I gave it 4 stars. It tells of how he approaches a character, but what was more fun was the back stories of some of the movies he played in. However, either the author or editor did not do their jobs because there's too many grammatical/spelling errors in the book. I'm noticing this more and more in books, and I have to wonder if there are any editors anymore.

I loved the biography of Morgan Freeman. He comes across very similar to how he was presented by Kathleen Tracy in the book.
He is an honest, thoughtful man, that is a good father, and grandfather model for us all. His attitude toward himself was humble and worthy of admiration. Definitely something I recommend reading.

I like Morgan Freeman even more after reading this book.

However, this is what i would call a formula book. The author mainly just cobbled together quotes from other sources. There are at least a couple quotes used twice in the book. Wonder if that was intentional?

Great topic, I thought the authors writing style and how the book was put together was lacking. I would have learned more about person and less quotes. This is like some movies not a money maker, it was poorly written and put together.

I got to page 36 and was good, just got in one of those "lazy and don't feel like reading" moods and had to take it back to the library. I hope to finish it some other time.

I enjoyed discovering more about Morgan Freeman's life and philosophies, but felt this book was a bit thrown together, with quotes rather than how I'd like an autobiography to flow.
