I love Robert Redford and so I couldn’t wait to read his biography. Redford has not only appeared on stage and screen, he is also known for his work behind the camera.

He has won countless awards and nominations for his acting, directing and producing and his Sundance Film Festival has been a great success.

For this biography Redford made his personal papers, journals and script notes available to Michael Feeney Callan as well as hours of taped interviews.

He discusses his family background and childhood, how he started out in acting, the setting up of the Sundance Festival as well as personal information such as the death of his son as well as friendships and romances.

The readers get a real insight into what Redford is like as a person and what drives him.

Anyone who is a fan will enjoy this book - or if you wanted to find out more about Redford this would be the ideal biography.

Callan has done his research well. Would highly recommend.
