Everything in this book, with the exception of some photos, was taken from Hotchner's Papa Hemingway. So there is no original input here.

It's a fair question about Hemingway: Where does one start to learn about him?

This book is as good a place as any. It's well designed, easy to read, and nicely illustrated.

If you're a Hemingway afficianado, you're unlikely to learn much that's new, though you may enjoy the presentation.

If you're new to Hemingway--or just wondered who was this legendary writer who made his life a work of performance art--you may find this book fun and informative.

Having read as much of and about Hemingway as I could get my hands on, I just enjoy dipping into this now and again. It brings a smile to me and seems to bring pleasure to others, as well.

I just received Hotchner's book, The Good Life According to Hemingway...and although I have a collection of 16 books already on Hemingway, including Hotchner's Papa Hemingway, this collection is by far the most readable, the most enjoyable, and worth every penney. I have read over and over again Hemingway's famous quotes, "a moveable feast" and
the rest, but some of his quotes herein are some I have never encountered:
"I know I wear a beard, but if you look closely, I'm no Santa Claus." This would make a splendid gift for the "uninitiated" in the life of Hemingway.

For necessary attitude adjustments. I keep mine bedside to straighten how all the BS that's accumulated in my head after work, etc. Mr. Hemingway had great perspective.

Basically a series of quotes with few real insights. A money book for the author. I read it in two hours and couldn't remember one noteworthy item after four. There are much better works on Hemingway, so buy used or save your money.

I'll be honest with you, I'm a fan of Hemingway and his work, so it won't come as a surprise that I like this book. I read "The Good Life According to Hemingway," as soon as it arrived in the mail. Three times. I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it to anyone. The anecdotes are as interesting and engaging as the photos.

This book brings together many of Hemingway's impressions of what comprises the good things in life, the fun, the adventures. Perhaps he should have reviewed these ideas and concepts before he pulled the trigger.

A half a century has past since Hemingway's death and his name still carries great weight among literary crowds and in popular culture. Younger generations may not fully understand why the man was so revered, and why he is so well remembered. This book of letter , short story and novel excerpts will illustrate just why Hemingway was a legend. There is a photo in the book of the front page of a newspaper that reads Hemingway and wife killed in plane crash. Three days later he comes walking out of the african wilds still alive. You can't make these sort of things up and expect anyone to believe it. Great for any fan of Hemingway or someone wanting to know how to handle various times in their lives. Must read.

i don't know. but in reading about hotchner, i get the feeling that basically he's made a living being an 'ex hemingway friend.' book after book, article after article...why doesn't he let the man rest in peace? should we send the royalty check to hotcher, or to hemingway's surviving family???

I have never read anything about, or by, Hemingway. This will encourage me to read some of his novels now. He put at least 80 years living in his 61years. It's a shame he felt it necessary to do that just because he couldn't continue living life in the same manner. He would have had so much more to contribute in remaining years.
