This is the best and most informative book I have read on Heath Ledger. At first, I wasn't too thrilled with the title of the book, as I was concerned it was trying to characterize Heath as just another dark and disturbed 'movie star'. Instead, it showed him to be the sensative and incredible 'actor' that I believe him to have been. I ended up being extremely pleased with the content and great photos as well as the numerous quotes from Heath. It was very difficult to read the final chapter. What a shame there had to be an ending.

This is a very informative look into the life of the late Heath Ledger. If you want to get a look into the early years of Heath all the way up to his untimely death, look no further than this book. It's very well written and has numerous quotes from Heath himself from past interviews. It's a real page-turner with great and unseen pictures before. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
This book is a must have for any Heath Ledger fan! It begins with Heath's birth and home life in Perth, Australia, and leads up to his final two roles in Hollywood. Each chapter includes information from the family as well as many family photographs. While Heath and Michelle are protective of their little girl Matilda, Heath does talk some about becoming a parent and how Matilda changed his life. A great read, appropriate photos, as well as lots of information from many different interviews.

A must have if you have ever enjoyed a Heath Ledger movie!!!

I purchased this book two years ago just after it came out and it was a beautiful read with stunning photography. It was emotional to look through as I am a huge Heath Ledger fan. One of Hollywood's greatest and terribly missed.

First off this book was better then the first book I red about it.The first book I red about him had lots of great pictures of Heath but not enough word content.This book has plenty of word content as well as many pictures.This book also talked more about the tv and movies he was in as well.This book could have talked more about his childhood to though.This book talked more about the real Heath though rather then how the media potrays him.And how he really died which was a comfort to hear.Deep down I didn't think he was a total partier despite what the media said.I think someone writing a story about a star in general is a great thing because it helps to lay any rumors about the star to rest.I love also the family pictures including in the book as well.Pictures of him,Michelle and his daughter very cute and some with him and his daughter. Heath was a guy who would misunderstood in many ways throughtout his life and now I know more how he really is If you want to know the real story about Heath Ledger this is the book to read.

This is quite an amazing biography. It's just so wonderful, so informative and providing. There's tons of great quotes from Heath himself and you feel like you get to know him a little bit just from the read. I'd recommend this book to anyone. In complete honesty I opened it up, started reading it, and finished it in one night. It's just incredibly addicting. You'll love it. We miss you Heath. You were great man.
