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.

Awesome book about an awesome actor. They took the trouble to include every single detail they found in their research and toward the end seemed to kind of shovel stuff in last minute, like random things that happened on set and such. The last chapter is a bit haphazard but die hard fans will like the detail it goes into. Learned a lot about him and now am in a phase where I wanna see all his movies just because the book pumped them up so well. And now I know the story behind them all. Definitely give this a read if you wanna learn more about the rad actor who died way too soon.

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!!!

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!

Heath ledgers life was one that ended far too quickly. A man with an amazing amount of talent was taken far too early in his career of stellar acting. This book lets you in on how heath worked and how seriously devoted he was to his art. Heath ledger is more than just an actor, he is an inspiration. His acting talent as well as his life have made a great impact on my own. He has influenced me in many things I do today. Heath ledger will not be forgotten.

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.
