Format: Hardcover
To be honest, I am totally appalled by this book's lax journalistic standards. I see that one reviewer insisted we should review the book and not the author, but I think when a person chooses to write a biography then the author's credentials should be scrutinized. Mr. Halperin from a quick Internet search operates a blog that is even worse when it comes to fact checking than this book. I can truly say it is an absolutely spurious blog--he makes sweeping statements like "Angie House Hunting in Portugal" and then throws in the proverbial a "close friend said..." and ends the spiel with "story developing" and then never gets back to the story.

So it was with interest that I started this book. First like many other reviewers I did note that the book focused heavily on Angelina Jolie with very few pages focused on Brad Pitt or the children. So calling the book Brangelina, the Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is really a misnomer.

Secondly, the book was filled with extraneous information that Mr. Halperin used as background so you would understand where he was coming from. There was almost a complete chapter devoted to Hollywood and gays in order to shed light on Jolie and Jenny Shimizu's relationship, but in reality it really had nothing to do with Jolie. There was a long blurb about incest in order to provide background on Jolie's Oscar kiss with her brother.

Thirdly, Halperin like with his blog has a hit and run approach in the book. He proclaims proudly that he went undercover by entering the mental hospital that Jolie checked herself into in 2000. Unfortunately, Halperin presents absolutely no indisputable facts that indicate she was ever there. He also states that her high school counselor said she was "inclined towards anti-social psychopathy.

I would like to state for the record that I am not a fanatical Hollywood star chaser. I don't read gossip magazines or watch "Entertainment Tonight" or their clones. So when some reviewers say the information in this book has already been in the gossip magazines over the last few years... that doesn't apply to me and probably doesn't apply to a large portion of the potential audience for this book. I am simply an average guy who like everybody else enjoys movies. Why did I buy this book? Because I figured that it probably condensed what was in hundreds if not thousands of the aforementioned gossip magazines. So instead of buying and reading thousands of magazines I could "hopefully" save time and read one book.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are obviously household names... but the big question that potential readers should have... is... is this an honest and fully documented book? Before I give my opinion on that all important question... let me first state that there are tons of titillating information regarding not only Brad and Angelina... but also Billy Bob Thornton... Angelina's brother James Haven (incestual partner??)... Father Jon Voight... and of course Jennifer Aniston... though much less than you would expect on Brad's ex-wife. There is also much less than a potential reader would expect about Brad. Three-quarters of the book is pure Angelina... with tidbits thrown in from all directions... ranging from the fact that at thirteen-years-old her life goal was to be a *FUNERAL DIRECTOR... before she was sixteen she had a live-in boyfriend in her Mother's house... which not only included sex... but included her fetish of cutting herself and her partner with all types of knives... admitted heavy drug use: "I HAVE DONE JUST ABOUT EVERY DRUG POSSIBLE, SHE REVEALED.

This book should really be retitled: Angelina Jolie: Rise to Stardom, or whatever. I bought it, thinking that it was an "undercover" story into the story of Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, and Angelina Jolie and the affair, the divorce, and the cheating, and how things happened...I expected to hear things that were never reported in People Magazine or any of those celebrity gossip magazines. But instead the book spent 5 pages talking about Brad Pitt's youth, the other 190 pages talking about Angelina Jolie since she was 7 years old, and only the last 70 pages talked about what the book was supposed to talk about "Brangelina". Ian Halperin NEVER even talked about Jolie and Pitt and how they got together until after page 190.

so if you want to learn about Jolie's childhood and her rise to stardom, read this book ,if you want to hear the "undercover" story of what happened between the Jolie-Pitt-Aniston affair, find another book.

The reviews I read about this book being mostly about Angelina are spot on, as well as the fact that the author really strays from the subject of the book over and over again. The description of this book lies when it says, "find out the truth behind Angelina's French kiss with her brother..." I don't recall any conclusions. He literally states, "And, although we'll probably never know for sure..." Everything is still speculation. I didn't feel there was much solid evidence from any source that could paint an accurate picture. I also expected to hear more evidence to back up his public claim that Brad and Angie would break up, but I came to find out that prediction came from someone else, and he isn't too sure about it. All in all, it was a quick mildly entertaining read, but was mostly akin to reading tabloids that are already out there. Granted I learned some new things, but had I paid better attention to the tabloids maybe I'd have know them already too.
