Good detailed analysis of the political background to his reign
Very little about his personal and family life (*)
Talks openly about her hard childhood, might help someone with similar experiences.
Comes across as rather shallow in places. A lot of name-dropping. (*)
Candid, revealing insight into the reality of 'the nice one'
Sometimes hard to keep track of who's who; strangely short on humour (*)
Great inspirational reading
Bit long winded when she laks about other race competitors (*)
Touching portrait of the actor and his family
The mix of biography and memoir can be a little blurred and disjointed at times (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (P)
Interesting story
Not always in chronological order (*)
Enjoyable read, some interesting anecdotes
Lack of authority in writing style, a bit too chatty, author too much of a name-dropper (*)
An insight into the lives of those whom are abused
Extremely sad and disturbing (*)
Good account of the life and times
Irritating cliches and style; not enough about the life (*)
Concise biography of a short unhappy life
A tad depressing, otherwise none (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (G)
Amusing and heart warming story of a family and their dog
None really (*)
Openness about Keating's contribution, has Gooch's authentic voice...

Interesting, funny, endearing
No massive negatives (*)
easy to read, well written, great story, emotional
None, (*)
