This beautiful addition to any Audrey Hepburn library is a classy production that brings into focus Audrey's life and work through extravagantly sized photos, reproduced on thick, lush pages that are velvety to the touch. It's full of stunning b&w and color portraits, snapshots, and film stills that are arranged well in a mostly chronological order. There are many quotes included, both by Audrey and about her, which give a good overall feel for her personality.

However, glaringly absent, there is nothing at all from "My Fair Lady." I was introduced to Audrey Hepburn as a child by way of "My Fair Lady," and therefore the film will always have a special place in my heart. I'm sure I am not alone. How the author could leave such an important work totally out of the collection is a puzzle to me, and therefore I cannot say this collection is completely comprehensive.

I found the biography at the beginning of the book a bit disjointed, although it does give a good overview of her experiences during her childhood and the war that so greatly affected her personality. Of course, the biography is not the point of this book, as this is not meant to be an in depth literary study of her life. This is her life and accomplishments told through photographs.

For those seeking a gorgeous photo album, this may be what you are looking for. The "personal" pictures I believe to be mostly photo ops, and therefore you do not get a much of look into the "private" Audrey, but the pictures are many and well varied, and the beautiful portraits alone are well worth the price of admission

This has plenty of beautiful, great quality pictures, including quite a few I have never seen before which is always a plus. The first 10 or so pages are a brief biography of Audrey, also a nice addition. After that, it's all photos and captions, with a few pages scattered here and there with a quote by or about Audrey. A beautiful coffee table book or addition to a fan's collection.

One of the problems that anyone who admires a deceased entertainment figure encounters is the great deal of repetition and duplication contained in many works about them.

This book has a wealth of fresh images of Audrey, and most of them are clear and reproduced in large format. The only drawback I can see is that many contain Mel Ferrer. If I wanted a book about him, I would buy one.

Otherwise, good value for the money.

This is a gorgeous book. The pictures are huge and clear with lots of bio tidbits and quotes around the pictures. Definitely worth it for any Audrey fan.

I ordered a copy for a dear friend who coveted my edition of this book. I ordered it on Nov. 27th, 2012, after a few delays, I have been notified it would ship January 10th, 2013 if I accepted the delayed deadline.

I have ordered this before and not received it - having been told there was low stock and had the order canceled due to lack of inventory. The book is winsome, elegant, hearty and magnificent. IF -- and that's a big IF -- you can obtain the book, the price from Amazon will save you some big bucks and allow you to own a terrific compendium of Audrey Hepburn's images. Some of the images have not been published elsewhere, so buy the book. I just wish I knew it would be delivered speedily.

I will update, dear friends, when the book arrives. Or doesn't!

I just recieved this. I absolutely love it! Audrey was such a classy lady so I've taken much interest. It gives you a more personal look at her life and the pictures are great. I only wish it was a little larger. I would prefer a larger size for a coffee table piece. :)

Worth the price for the cover photo alone!

Granted, there are some gaps and gaffs but such an exquisite production deserves to be in avery AH fan's collection.

I particularly like the photos backstage etc. That is, I like the photos of her not acting. They show something of the real magic of this beautiful, charming and brave lady.

This is a book you will be happy to own - guaranteed!

I you like this, then you'll also like The Audrey Hepburn Treasures

This beautiful book is a fitting tribute to a brave, talented and beautiful lady. Well worth the price. More than a "coffee table book" the biographical introduction is well written and informative. Where are class acts like Audrey today?
