    Audrey Hepburn was one of my all time favorite stars this book shared many interesting facts about a truly remarkable woman. I will always admire the severity she went through as a young child and the inner strength she showed us until her death. To me she is an Icon. She was shy in her way yet fought for what was important to her.

    The 4 stars are ONLY for the glorious and copious pictures in this large hardback, including some rare and candid shots. If I could give a separate rating for the accompanying text, it would get 1 star. It is both poorly written and poorly researched, especially for a publication of 2009, by which time much of the record had been set straight about Audrey. The author would have done well to pay more attention to Sean Hepburn Ferrer's biography of 2003, for instance. Yapp's text is careless and not even properly proof-read. One would do better to just look at the photos and the captions but go elsewhere for information about Audrey's life. To summarise: this book is a mixed pleasure. Fab pics, shame about the text.
