Bosworth covers Jane's life well except for her non-acting period in the 1990s and early 2000s, which left me wanting a bit more. The book does go deeper than Fonda's autobiography of 2005, with observations and insights from a variety of sources. If you like Jane Fonda you will probably like the book. I like her honesty, which she takes too far at times, if you think that is possible. She is one of the least devious people I can imagine, which can be endearing or maddening depending on your viewpoint. And contrary to what one might think after reading this, Jane Fonda's picture is NOT next to the dictionary definition of codependency.
