Be prepared for a very intricately detailed account of the actor's life thus far. I am 2/3 through it and don't know if I'll have the patience to last until the end. So many tedious details about movie deals/negotiations that the author could certainly have given us the "cliff notes" version of!

I never realized the extent to which the Redford family were involved in various kinds of activism. This was very interesting. The rest was okay.

A meticulous, tiptoeingly respectful biography of Robert Redford: actor, director and environmental activist.
