For the first time, Harrison Ford is revealed to readers with all his compelling complexities. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in Harrison Ford. The only draw back is the small amount of pictures (only 8 pages). He's a hero I'll take any day! :)

Jenkins describes the difficult early years and chronicles the brutal treatment meted out to Ford within the fading Hollywood star system. Издание: иллюстрированное. He records the backstage battles Ford fought and offers fresh glimpses behind the scenes of American Graffiti, Star Wars, Witness, and the Indiana Jones adventures. This is the story of a flawed and fallible hero, a man scarred yet strengthened by his experiences: Hollywood's imperfect hero as he has never been seen before.

a very good biography with lots of detailed stories about Harrison Ford. the author didnt try to make Harrison Ford "perfect", it's just telling a story and leave it to the readers to decide for themselves.

The are a couple things to note when reading this book. First, is that it is unauthorized which doesn't mean that the author does not have to "sugarcoat" Harrison Ford. Sounds like a great book. Second is that the book is unauthorized...conversely, the author does not seem to have spoken with Harrison Ford.
Unlike other unauthorized biographies, this book doesn't make a big production of it. The author is not trying to sell this book on scandal. The sell is on the picture behind what you usually hear or read. From going through the notes, the author has interviewed quite a few people and has gone through a lot of background information to create this.
The book reads easily, and I don't find myself questioning the author. All his statements about Harrison Ford, like his being a perfectionist, follows from the supporting evidence. The author also does not jump around. It all flows logically.
Harrison Ford is an American movie icon. This book allows you to look at the experiences and attitudes which got him there. If you are a fan of Harrison Ford, then I would suggest you take a deep breath before reading. The author is not trying to make him into a saint.
????????????????????????
It's alright that the author didn't speak with Ford while writing and researching this unathorized biography. Often the person being written about can clarify something that isn't clear. Often, the person being written about can put a positive spin on some event in an attempt to make themself look better. This is a good book about the humble actor that looked at his pre-success years, going back to his mid-west roots, marriage, and the ups-and-downs of his experience in the film industry, which was covered a lot. How did Harry get that scar?....the answers lies within these pages. One interesting note is the story of a young producer, writer and director who made a movie in the 70s. At the screening, many movie moguls approached the young creator and told him bluntly that his film would be a flop, no one would see it, and his career may be in jeopardy after producing such a poor piece of work. The name of the movie was......."Star Wars." The man was George Lucas.

Jenkins reveals the true Hollwood-hating, nature loving Ford in all his glory. A must read for all fans, but a nice read for anyone who's ever just enjoyed one of Harrison's many great performances. Two thumbs way up!

Really good, especially considering it was very hard for Garry Jenkins to get information on such a private (and greatly admired) guy. You will enjoy it!

This biography of Harrison Ford is perfect reading for any fan of Harrison Ford or anyone suffering from O. C. H. F. D. (obsessive-compulsive Harrison Ford disorder). It offered rare glimpses into his personal life and wonderful descriptions and pictures.
Before I read this book, I thought Harrison Ford was a selfish and air-headed movie star. It proved me wrong. I learned about his struggle through his childhood, his rise to fame and how he is a perfectionist, finding that just by being myself, I have lots in common with the man who created wonderful heroes such as Indiana Jones, Han Solo and Jack Ryan, to name a few. He is selfless and modest, a condition hard to find in a movie star.

So if Mr. Harrison is reading this-keep making great movies, sir, and I'll keep watching and rooting for you all the way!
